To me the WR is a no brainer. The Honda is not nearly as good as the WR in any category. It's heavier, has unadjustable suspension, and a 1/3 of the power. Even though they are both 250cc, the honda puts out about 18 hp, while the Yamaha is closer to 25-26. It is a huge difference, and if you're going to be packing the bike down as much as these guys I'm sure the 30% power advantage helps tote yourself around a lot better. I have a video of my WR against the Honda if you're interested.
