Isn't the Sertao heavier? (Just asking... don't know) Of course this has more power possibily at the expense of reliability; that'll take a while to know for sure.

For the extra $1650 the Sertao gives you ABS, a wind screen, more travel, but skinner conventional forks and a 3 year warranty vs 1 year (maybe).
ABS is a $600+/- option, the wind screen is worth maybe $200 and 2 years warranty is worth +/-$800, about $1600 total
*Edit....I forgot the Sertao also has hand guards and a bash plate so maybe $200 more on its side.
