Another oil question

Although there are a lot of topics regarding oil, i couldn't find the answer i was looking for. So here yet another oil question.

I have a Husaberg FE550 '04, and my dealer adviced 10W50 oil for it. My supplier on the other hand recommended 10W40. From what i read the 10W50 remains thicker at higher temperatures, and this motor does run hot, but is this a must for a Husa? Will 10W40 also do the job?

What would be the best choice, i already got below 2 types of oil, but don't know which of both to use know.

Motul 7100 10W50
Putoline Offroad 4+ 10W40
