Wanting a Motard, need some help picking one.

Okay so after some time thinking i dont want a sport bike anymore. I want a Motard, simply because i love off roading and MX and the fact that its street legal sold me on it. So now im having a hard time decdiding what i want because im not to educated on the Motard subject. I want something thats got that MX look, but also has some power too it also. people with knowledge on this subject please post your opionions or suggestions. Thanks

You've got some choices. You need to figure out how much you want to spend and how much maintenance you are willing to deal with. Lastly, if you are open to doing a MX to street legal conversion. That will all narrow down the right bike for you pretty easily.

Biggest choice, in my eyes, is do you want low maintenance at the expense of a little less power? Or do you want lots of power at the expense of higher maintenance (valve adjustments, top ends)?

Check out this listing I've found it does alot of the leg work on the net for you.
They always have a few KTM 690 SMC's for sale. Which form what I've been led to believe is the cream of the crop when it comes to SM's

Save it in ur favs and it will always show the latest listings when you click on it.
