2014 ktm85 or 2014 kx 85?

the new 2014kx85 is having a major revamp with new frame,bigger crank,new carb,heaps more power,better brakes and new kyb upside down forks with more dampening and rebound adjustments as well a new shock to suit.
is this going to be a option to come up to scratch with the 2014 ktm which only gets new decals for the terrific update it got for 2013?
my kids not racing and will start out on a small wheel and rides at the mx track weekly. I was pretty set on the ktm until the new kx was brought to my attention.
whats the thoughts on this?

My votes with the TM, my son is racing on one this year. But given the options listed my vote is with the KTM.

150r would be better for bush work as well but I think it's a bit to heavy for him atm.

The Kato is faster but have been known to have the odd engine issue.
The KX is more reliable (renowned as being absolutely bullet proof) but doesn't have the handling, power or suspension to match the Kato.
If you want to win races the Kato is the go, if you want to belt out a million hours without putting a spanner to it, the KX would be a better choice.
