Adventure

Adventure bikes are part of the natural progression of development within the dual-sport range. The genre started out as a Jack-of-all/master-of-none machine that could be ridden both on-road and off-road, but it has since been refined to include bikes that are highly specialized with a bias that all but excludes its counterpart. These are the “new” commuters, tour bikes and rally bikes on the block, and no matter what their purpose, they share a certain look. Most start out with a bird's-beak front fairing and a secondary fender over the front wheel. Tall suspension components deliver long-stroke performance, but the most distinctive feature has to be the camel-like fuel-tank hump ahead of a deep-swale pilot seat area that defines a distinctive flyline. Displacement usually falls between 600 cc and 1,200 cc, and they can be had in vanilla or with the full spectrum of ride-quality adjustments.
