check out any ktm with the lc4 motor. i've got a 625smc and absolutely get a hard-on every time i grab the throttle. pulls like my R6 up to ~80mph. and has maintenance intervals that aren't like other motards (7500 mile valve checks, and ~2500-3500 mile oil changes). they're great bikes... and the motors have been known to last upwards of 50k miles on a regular basis. some as high as 70k before they rebuild the topend just to get some "giddup" back. ;)

Go with the Ktm stick with the newer 690smc they have a lot more hp you won't be disappointed I can kill drz's all day with a passenger and I only do regular oil changes every 3000 miles I'm at 28000 now no problems
