I paid big dollars for my SM610. It was tweaked by Fast BY Ferracci right out of the crate, but you can always find a dualsport on the cheap (craigslist) & change rims if you can't find a cheap supermoto. That way you can switch wheels if you want to go off road.
The sumo really inspires confidence on curves. It takes some getting used to because it sits so high. I never had any experience on a dirt bike, so if you do, sitting so high up should be pretty easy. You can also check out SMJ Super Moto Junkie forum for ideas.
Sorry, I know this is ST3 forum.
