511te

I have a 511TE 2012 model. These are race motors that can connect the
trail. I don't think it would have the longevity running the road you would
seek, and they require maintenance that all motocross, enduro bikes need...
Mine is reasonably smooth at 50/55mph, and with the recommended modifications, makes great power, and is a wonderful big bore for harescrambles
And enduros/real dualsport rides. I think a WR450 would be worse and not
as competitive, the WR250R would not require as much fooling with, but
Off road the TE kills it dead. It is right for me, to commute, I have a KLR650,
And and old 1200S Bandit. The TE511 is not a commuter bike, it's a racing
Bike.
