...a KTM 650. I'm riding the Kawasaki for my training course. I've never ridden a Vstrom 650 although I'm getting one delivered next week.
The KTM seems to have a lot of rough edges; I know it's a better off road machine...

Are you considering not taking delivery of the Wee, and buying the KTM?

As a new rider, I think you'll be much happier on the Wee. The seat height is much lower, parts are cheaper (when you drop it) and the road manners will be a bit better.

The KTM is a great bike (though more maintenance intensive) but may not be better for you.

Did you mean KLR 650? If you did mean KTM there is a HUGE difference in price and performance.
Good catch, I skipped over the "650" part and subsonsciously inserted 640.
