Maybe get the 700 if you don't just have to have the laced wheels, I like the motor on my wife's 650 twin better than my 800.

Couple of questions:

Are there any faulty things to watch out for with the bike from the factory? ??not really.Anything to keep an eye on?

What is the oil change interval? I change every 10000 miles with synthetic The dealer here in Toronto told me every 5000 km, that doesn't sound right, is he trying to scam me?

What can I ask for the dealer to throw in extra when I buy the bike? Do you think they will come down on retail price? YES I want to get the best deal.

Oh I'm also looking at a 2013 KTM 990 Supermoto T, I know it's not really an offroad bike, but wanted to hear peoples thoughts on it.
Just my opinion.
I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but let's take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself.
Current bikes F800GS-EXCF350-Versys-690R-RZ350
