V-Twins

Thinking about a newer V-twin, I have a 89 nt650 hawk, sniffing around 3 bikes: Ducati Hyperstrada, KTM SuperDuke and Aprilia Dursoduro, so what the good, bad and ulgy on these bike, looking to use as a daily driver, going back and forth to work, some weekend use

Which one is the cheapest to maintain?
Which one is least problematic?
Which one has the best dealership network (if you travel?)
Which one get your motor runnin'?

Which one would I get? Doesn't matter what I think. It's your moto you're talking about.

650 v Strom? I'm biased though.

Love my 990 SM-T :)

It's like an angry SV on steroids.
