The big one is that it is a twin, so it's probably got an extra 5-hp over the singles and is much smoother. And it's a a conventional street motorcycle, not a dual-sport, so lower seat height, standard ergos, wider seat. More room for luggage, you might even be able to fit a small set of hardbags.

Granted, it doesn't have the dirt capability of the dual-sport singles, so not a good choice if you're doing any serious dirt, but I'd think it a much better steet bike than any of the 250cc singles.

Drum front brake sucks though.
