This is a load of crap. The 315 had it`s own issues. There is nothing wrong with the 315 ( besides crazy parts prices), but I always preferred the Beta rev3. (Just a personable choice)
Most parts besides the engine are shared with the European bikes. It really just depends on condition. Buy the least used bike you can find. Keep hunting until you are satisfied.
