    I decided on Husqvarna over KTM because the air filter is easier to change on the new (17+) models. Linkage suspension, adjustability in the bars (gotta buy a six days KTM for the same adjustments), solid grab handles on the rear subframe, husqvarna parts transfer over across the husqvarna line up unlike the KTM EXC's (pds vs kinkage) this will matter for when you want to remove the reeds from the intake and replace the exhaust.

    @Cartera Thanks. Tough choice...gotta check them out, I see the Husqi is a bit taller and heavier.
    I can get it for the same price as the KTM though...which is a bargain

    It is a tuff choice. You can get an amazing bike in Orange or an amazing bike in white!
