x2All I can say is that I can't imagine a better motard than the 570. This is the fourth one that I have owned and by far my favorite. It does everything right. Plus, as I have recently found out, that 6th gear is awesome. No more revving the balls off the bike to do 80+ on the highway! Comparing the bike to an smc625 or a 630 husky is really no comparison. Husaberg really got it right this time. Freaking love this thing! To each their own but I am very happy with my choice.
