I'm looking at getting a KTM 525, likely 2005 up. Any way I want to keep the 650r and dual sport the 525 aswell. I wan't something lighter with electric start that I can throw around alittle more. I'm thinking that I need 2 bikes to give me all that I'm looking for. I have the XR geared lower but would put something taller back on and use it for longer distances and backroad exploring / trail scouting. So I guess what I wan't to know is how will I like the 525? Will it compare at all to the 650 power wise? Can it do it all like the 650r, just better in some places? (I hope) Or will I find that I don't need 2 bikes, like I think and I'll like the 525 better leaving the 650 collecting dust? Can the 525 handle dual sport duty just as well? Than hit the single track and rip? I'm asking here cause I wanna hear form people who have the same feel for the 650r I have so I have something to compare it to.
