Between these two models, the Kona has superior components. For touring, the included F/R racks are a nice touch too. Finally, I'm personally a fan of disc brakes for touring bikes. Not only will you have superior braking power during inclement weather, but there will also be less wear and tear on your rims. Having said all this, I'm assuming the Sutra is more $$$ though.

BTW, I noticed both your choices are brands popular in Canada. Assuming you reside there, another company to consider is Brodie. They have several solid choices in the "do-it-all" road bike segment. In particular, check out these two steel framed models:

Hope this helps and good luck! :thumbsup:
