I've got buddies with both. The honda is pretty stock and runs pretty hard, the yamaha has the typical mods and freakin fast. He was smokin people at sand mountain with his knobs on. The only thing I don't like about the yamaha is the ride. The suspension seemed stiff and with as light as it is it bounces around under you. I've heard that this year they have improved the ride though.
I've always liked the honda's, but everyone has been raving about the yamaha.
Personally, I ride a predator and love it. It's heavier but the ride is awesome and very forgiving and the only place the yamaha can get away is straight line.
I think you'd be happy with either one. Everyone has made vast improvements the last few years.
