So I've been looking at a new lams bike to replace my trusty c,b125e and I think have narrowed it down to these two. I want a new bike not second hand as the pricing discount just doesn't seem to be there. I need it to be able to make the trip from Sydney to Nowra without any issues or hassles. I have test ridden both of these and love them both. Honda have a special on the 500f of $800 off but its a big heavier bike . The ktm is fun to ride but being 50i winded if its too flashy for me? I'm interested in others thoughts on which is best bike for a mixture of Hwy and commuter riding as well as which retains value the best. Thoughts?
