PM me and we can discuss the details of your question.
I have a decade of experience with KTM bikes and can field most questions on them.
For town or travel?
Short answer, get the 950sm and $5000 is a real price. The 320# Duke is a hoot and 620 motor is great to squirt around town on, but the 5 speed single lacks smoothness for open roads and extended rides.
I am biased with a 950sm in the stable!
