2013 Berg 300 vs 2013 KTM 300, what are the differences?

Looking at upgrading and it seems the Berg has better forks is this correct? Which bike would you buy if colours and graphics didn't come into the equation as they make no difference to me. I'm pretty keen to stick with something main stream, so I'm pretty keen on either an orange or blue ktm. Cheers.

Doesn't matter, either one will pull from below idle, get more traction than a 4 stroke and win all the extreme events you enter

They are meant to be the better forks though aren't they. I haven't gone through THAT whole thread yet. You just had some bad luck right?

Were the 2012 Berg cc forks better than the 4cs forks??

I was amazed at the 350 though. It doesn't have the power of a 450 but has more than a 250, so it was just like riding a bike in between the two, wow.

The Berg forks have more potential and tuning options i guess, but nothing wrong with the kato forks... been around for donkies so easy to find info/help etc and they have improved alot over the years.
