Hi there! Ill try to be short and to the point with this one... Im currently in Zanzibar (Tanzania, Africa) and am looking to buy an enduro in Switzerland to have shipped down here (first will tour the mountains for 3 weeks). First limitation is brands as the only spare parts Ill ever find down here will be for Honda and Yamaha (more Honda though).

Ive been looking at the Honda XR650L, XR650R (favorite on the list), XL650, XL650R and FMX650. Problem is I cant easily find them in Switzerland and they dont really fit within my budget... Therefore Ive also been looking at what is easily available and that is mainly Transalp XL600V, the Africa Twin XR750V and the Dominator NX650.

There is currently a 1998 Transalp XL600V available for a good price. But Im still not convinced by this bulky, heavy, not great-looking bike... Ive also managed to find a 2001 Dominator (my opinion is slightly higher for the Dominator but not by much). Thing is I need an enduro that does well on the road (specially for the first month of use in Europe) as well as off of the beaten track. Not that Ill be doing extreme off-road here, but there are some nasty (yet extremely fun!) dirt tracks out here and I have my doubts on the off-road capabilities of the Transalp, Africa Twin and Dominator.

Could you possibly give me any more details on these bikes?
