Hello,

Currently have a 125 supermoto but have my test coming up soon and want to keep in line with the supermoto/motocross path I've been following

I've been looking at two different bikes, the CRF 450R or the KTM Duke 2 640.

I know the CRF will require more maintenance etc but just looking for peoples thoughts. Generally will be used as a commuting bike which points me to the 640.

Thoughts?

Don't get the 450 for commuting. Ridiculous amount of maintenance required and generally pretty crap on the road.

Commuter-moto - DRZ400 I guess, or the 640, or how about a 644 CCM?
