06 ktm 560 smr,berg fs550 or berg fs 650?

Hey guys, I'm new here and wondering which bike to get? I hear the ktm 560 smr is sweet but trashes crank bearings. Does the berg 550 also do this? Does the berg 650? how much more torquier is the 650? Are the berg motards 6 speeds like the ktm? The bike I choose will be ridden on the streets.

Thanks for any and all advice.

PS- hello all, I'm a newb!

550 bottom ends are solid. 650's need care to fit SMR560 bearings and then they are the biz too!

Husabergs are lighter and faster. Husabergs are better. KTMs are crap. Orange is ugly, yellow and blue is beautiful!

etcetra etcetra.......

Thanks guys.

So the 550 doesn't blow main bearings, but the 650 does? The 650 runs the same bearings as the 560 smr? Are the Bergson six speeds? How come the 560 smr craps main bearings but the stronger 650 engine doesn't? Still press fit cranks?

yes they are 6-speeds. no idea what is wrong with the KTMs other than being ugly and no good and ..... LOL!!!!

the 650 is good when built with the SMRs bearings.
