For more offroad oriented, think smaller. A lot smaller, like a 250 or 300. Forget about the highway!

OTOH if you just want a better, orange, XRR, think 640 or 690, not the 530.

If you just want to ride, get the klr or a dr or an xrl. If you want to go fast and don't mind the extra maintenance and cost, get the KTM. If you must have a BMW, get that one. Simple.
