Those are usually in major/minor maintenance intervals. Skip the minors: change oil, air in tires, lol. In reality after your first major, it's probably closer to every 10k miles. This bike has a midrange cam that will set your eyeballs in the back of your head and it's dependable as hell. It's like a $5K option for free - a gift from Kawasaki!
Those were the two bikes I looked at too, but no one is going to beat Kawasaki on value especially on this bike. This site will help you get going with the most information on this bike in the world. Whatever you choose, be safe; and when you get buzzed by a Versys 650 (a supermoto tourer), remember you've got better offroad capability on the Suzuki (a dual purpose bike) - and you are paying a lot more for it your whole ownership with Suzuki's.
