Wr250x vs drz 400sm

Hey guys looking at theses two bikes. I had a 2014 klr650 and hate it big slow heavy and gas guzzler. I like that the drz can power wheelie can the wr? Also how do they handle on freeways?

I dont think a DRZ is much if any faster then a KLR,the one I had wasnt big on power wheelies. One would hope either would beat a WRR250.

If your looking for fast think bigger engine,and only the euros even try to build a fast big dual purpose single

I don't think I have heard someone call the KLR a gas guzzler before. But compared to a 400 or 250, I guess it could be. Realistically though the KLR, DRZ and WR are very different bikes for different purposes. The DRZ andWR can handle the freeways, but you may not like it as much than on the bigger, heavier KLR.
