    I guess it depends on what kind of user you are. If you don´t plan to put much more time into your bike except riding time you might be better off with the higher quality equipped VIPER.

    If you are planning to upgrade your bike and maybe emphasize some history and a well known name, if not the best known, in the bike industry... IMHO the Hardrock is the way to go.
