The Raptor is better for trails. It has a big motor and you can putt around. They both pretty much the same for maintnence not much.

For trail riding the raptor because you can lug it and it has reverse. If you were going to race MX then the 450.

Raptor for trails and drag racing.

YFZ for MX.

250EX for everything!

Funny you should say that, that's exactly what I ride trails here with! They're too tight for my Rappy.
