I really like the avant garde looks of the Husqvarna, but the negative is the KTM engine. Even the KTM dealer told me it is really fiddly (overheating -control with super coolant, less than stellar fueling-fix with a $300 power commander, notchy shifting, expensive valve adjustments because of labor to get to them.
But, I don't mind fiddling too much, I am retired. I assume the BMW will be fiddle free, just ride it.
The G310GS might be too tall, don't know yet, but I would consider it too.
I never ride with a passenger, usually toss the rear pegs and bolt a small utility bag to the back of the seat.
