I put 150 hrs on a 570 with no show stopping problems.

570 good points.
Better (like way better) electrics. Stronger battery, rectifier, relays on everything. Just better all around.

More power.

Combined motor and transmission oil. Plus a sump. It's a way better setup than the KTM.


Hard to get aftermarket parts for, i.e. fuel tank, rear rack.
Runs hotter. Heat is captured between the motor and the sub frame.

I owned a KTM 530 for a couple months. Even though the valves were set correctly. That bike was a killer to start when warm. It stranded me in the middle of no where a few times.

The berg started and ran all the time. Besides there are really nice 570 on CL and the flea market for 6500 to 7500. That is a good price.
