I really have no problems with KTM, BMW or Husky. As far as I can see they are all very well made bikes but I like to do model reviews on anything I consider before I even throw a leg over.

The parts question is pretty valid, I'm going to search around and see whats available.
KTM also bought Husaberg back in 2012-13 timeframe and they d/c'd the 570 70* motor from all reports was the bomb off road motor. 570cc, 6 speed trans, large enough oil capacity for longer time between oil changes then add a cush drive and you have a great 90/10 dual sport bike. I really like what Yamaha is going to offer as the 700cc Tenere in 2019.

A 90/10 would be ideal. I just looked up that Husaberg, it would be PERFECT in spite of a few lbs over a 250.

I got two calls yesterday with offers of a YZ, even if I add lights and a plate (easy here in South Dakota) it's not a machine I would want to ride on the street for more than connecting adjacent trails, even with a cush hub. I'm probably going to move on that TE unless something else compelling comes in.
