Exmark Metro 21"-Honda or Kawasaki

I need to purchase a new 21" mower. The exmark/toro unit seems most appealing. Some questions I'd like to have answered are:
1. What, if any, differences are there between the toro proline and exmark metro 21"?

2. Which of the two engine offerings are better: Honda or Kawasaki? I understand Kawasaki has revised the FJ180V on the 07 models? Any reason for that?

Buy a honda commercial 21"... I have one from 1986 with the ball bearing wheels, and steel deck, they still make the same mower, mine starts first pull almost every time, I would love to see the hours on that thing.

So Honda engine I say.
