Yeah about 12-13lbs lighter than a DRZ400e, but one should expect half the power from half the engine size, sort of obvious, which is why it gets fantastic fuel economy and is over a grand cheaper than the DRZ400E as well, a totally apples to oranges comparison.
I still don't think the Yamahas are built as well, and I still do not like the lack of frame under the engine, that to me is a dealbreaker in a dirtbike.
I guess I bring a Pilot's perspective to the table in that the ONLY time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.
