the 525 is very high strung

the 625 is the 640 without the large tank and plastics

you get a large 27 litre tank for the 625

the newer model 625 also has a bigger oil capacity ie. you dont need to replace the oil every 5min

BUT-  i heard you get something like 80km's with the 9 l tank.  Thats nasty. Is it true? (since i'm used to be able to reach almost 500km's)

Depends on the throttle hand!!! Did up to 140km at reasonable speeds - but still not very much!!

well ktm is not as fuel efficient as other bikes

but then you also race it you dont ride it so thats even worst then

if you just plotter along on a 625 at 100km/h you will get same mileage as on klr

I had a 625sxc, very nice bike. You probably look at 120-140km per tank depending on throttle abuse. Each bike is unique and you need to decide on what you wanna use the bike for.

Short distance i would go for the 525 longer trips the 625. The 625 engine will last longer without a rebuild required.

My 640 get on average 15km/ l,  but  this can vary. If i really hammer it it will do 12km/l and if I go easy it will +20km/l

I'm prob not going to ride like grandma.

18L tank will have to be installed. (nts)

How about long trips. Like 400km/day.  Do you have gel/wool seats?

I have done a couple of over 700kms a day rides and you do get monkey butt. I dont see the need for a air hawk or similiar thing.
