I'm 6'4"/250lbs and the WRR pulls me fine. Yes it likes to be revved, but for a 250, its a pretty peppy machine. Not sure if you rode a stock one, but with some gearing changes and a few mods, it totally changes the bike.

It does really depend on what you are used to, but I had a Husky TE610 right before my WRR and gave up the Husky to buy the WRR. The Husky was a pure animal and they don't get much powerful and lighter than that, so that was definitely culture shock, but I have no regrets about purchasing my WRR.

I have a DR650 also and of course the DR is faster out of the hole, but when it comes to pounding the dirt, I'm way faster on the WRR in the dirt. The bike is so much easier to handle and so much more fun to ride.
