    Back to the OP's orignal question; Although I love my scoots, I would suggest a used 250 dual sport bike for what you want to do. With the type of dirt bike you ride, and your single track experience, you would far surpass any scooter that I know or have heard of for off road riding. CVT transmissions just don't work well for off road riding since there is no engine braking. The suspension would be closer to NO SUSPENSION than what you have on your KTM. Plus when you crash a typical scooter (aside from the Madass or Rukus) its going to break a lot of expensive plastic. The DS bike will be a lot of fun for you around town, and much better for fire roads and two-track than any scooter IMO. Plus your likely to find a good used DS bike for a LOT less than what the more off-road oriented scoots cost, certainly well under $3K.
