Top Speed Top Six Adventure motorcycles to buy under $10,000

Top Speed Top Six Adventure motorcycles to buy under $10,000

Machines built for the love of adventure with powerful engines, top-spec electronics, suspension, and brake setup. All under $10,000.

All around the globe, asphalt or no asphalt, the adventure series of machines give riders the swiss knife to carve up terrains and tread through almost anything with versatility and style. With the looks and utility of a capable off-roader and the balance and handling of a sport-standard, adventure motorcycles are a bipartisan look at how to tackle paved roads and dirt. Big and powerful engines, long travel suspensions, and a higher riding position with multiple rider aids adorn these machines.

With having a lot to carry around to fight a multitude of terrains, they are usually an expensive affair (easily 14 grand or more for the latest top-spec models). Luckily, manufacturers have been recognizing this and have been tweaking things around to offer more affordable options to give not so fortunate riders like us to experience the thrill of finding our way through the unknown on two-wheels.

Here are our top six picks of ADV machines falling under the $ 10,000 price tag that you can buy in 2020:

2019 - 2020 Ducati Monster 821 Stealth

2019 - 2020 Ducati Monster 821 Stealth

It’s a highly functional tribute to the ’93 Monster 900

The Ducati Monster can trace its heritage back to the ’93 Monster 900, and the new “Stealth” variant serves as what you might call a highly-functional tribute piece for that venerated machine. It totes the usual suite of electronic gadgets with Ducati’s Quick Shift feature added to the stock package, and it boasts 100-plus horsepower in a design that is, paradoxically, both sexy and stocky at the same time.

Triumph gave their swashbuckler Tiger 1200 machine two special editions for 2020

They call it 1200 “Desert” and “Alpine” – {Inspired by the world’s most epic motorcycle adventures}

When the Brits’ launched the Tiger 900 recently with more power, aggressive modern styling, brilliant standard specs, and new state-of-the-art riding enhancements, it was the big brother 1200’s stars to shine next.

But Triumph decided to have a swansong attempt instead and has added some fancy trinkets to make their mid-range 1200 XCx and XRx posher and special. It’ll include new paint jobs inspired by the world’s more arid climates and locations, and some fancy equipment that takes the functionality quotient of the already capable machines to new levels.

2020 MV Agusta Rush 1000

2020 MV Agusta Rush 1000

Meant to dominate the drag strip, the Rush has a “take no prisoners” attitude

MV Agusta built the Rush 1000 with a single purpose in mind: drag strip domination. The factory took its 200-plus horsepower Brutale engine and mounted it in a bike that, in true dragster tradition, carries only what is needed to function. No weight is wasted on superfluous equipment or body panels to convert as many of those ponies as possible into brute acceleration. Those weight-savings measures extend to the engine and include the use of titanium to reduce the reciprocating mass of the mill and deliver faster revs. The electronics suite is all about that drag-tastic life to deliver the safety and control you’ll need to manage the power and keep the thing rubber-side down.

Harley-Davidson just showed us a strong intent of their future electric street-tracker

Harley-Davidson just showed us a strong intent of their future electric street-tracker

It will be introduced in 2021-22, and will come with “accessible power” while being priced lower than the LiveWire flagship

As part of its brand new “More Roads to Harley-Davidson” growth plan through 2022, HD made inroads with the LiveWire electric streetfighter. It is the first in a broad, no-clutch “twist and go” portfolio of products that will put the company right in the center of the electric race.

A run through their US website today gave us a glimpse of the Milwaukee brand’s flat-track-inspired electric motorbike concept sketched out. This street-tracker is said to be developed to bridge the gap between the “lightweight urban” bike concepts showcased at the 2019 EICMA and the premium, high-power, halo model-the LiveWire.

Harley-Davidson lends its flair to the GMC Sierra limited edition truck

The V8 truck harks on the Fat Boy’s persona with 65 customized components

For 20 many years, Indiana based Tuscany Motor Company would often give us enthusiasts Harley-Davidson special limited-edition trucks based out of Ford’s most famous pickup, the F-150. Ford never had a factory kit directly, but Tuscany customized these cosmetic packages under the direction of the Milwaukee firm, reflecting notable and iconic features of a cruiser almost every year.

For 2020, Tuscany has shed the Ford badge to a brand new GMC Sierra and have launched the Harley-Davidson GMC Sierra Truck, with the Fat Boy being the inspiration for this build. The limited run of 250 examples will include over 65 proprietary components designed alongside Harley-Davidson to uplift the vibe and the character of the already striking Sierra truck.

2018 - 2020 Ducati Monster 821

2018 - 2020 Ducati Monster 821

It’s the epitome of what a naked sportbike should be

Newly revised in 2018, the Monster 821 from Ducati benefits from some trickle-down engineering from its big brother, the Monster 1200, and a host of new design touches all its own. A new tank, tail section, headlight and muffler gives it an all-new variation on the classic Monster look with due consideration for the original Monster 900. Duc’s Testastretta L-twin powerplant serves up streetfighter performance with 109 horsepower tucked away in the stable and a host of safety systems to aid the rider in keeping it all under control. Not an entry-level ride by any stretch of the imagination, the Monster 821 does offer an experienced rider a mercurial platform that can shift personalities at the touch of a button for a wide range of conditions and skill levels.

2019 - 2020 Kawasaki Ninja H2 R

2019 - 2020 Kawasaki Ninja H2 R

With Top-Flight Aerodynamics And A Supercharged Engine, The H2 R Is Far Too Awesome To Be Street Legal

Many of the major players offer a pure-D racetrack hypersport for the public’s consumption, and for Kawasaki, that honor falls to the freshly updated Ninja H2 R. The H2 R brings to the table the best Kawi has to offer along with top-flight aerodynamics and a supercharged engine on top of a full electronics suite making it a threat on the track right out of the box. That’s about the only place it’s a threat though, since the H2 R is far too awesome to be street legal, and as a track-only bike, it wastes not an ounce on any silly old mirrors, headlights, or turn signals. Carbon-fiber components complete the package with their own brand of lightweight strength.

TJ's Top Ten Picks For The Most Significant Bikes In Motorcycling History

TJ’s Top Ten Picks For The Most Significant Bikes In Motorcycling History

Bikes that changed, or even created, the landscape that we enjoy today

What goes into moving a particular motorcycle into the “Historically Significant” category? That depends upon whom you ask, of course. What their priorities are, how far back in history they are interested in delving and even upon which surfaces the bikes are built to travel. Verily I say unto thee; the possibilities are legion. With that in mind, I want to tackle that question myself today, but first I will qualify what it means to me for the purpose of this article. Some will be mechanical marvels of their time, and some will be rather mundane yet have astronomical sales figures as an indicator of consumer popularity. I’m going to stick to street/road bikes and exclude off-road machines, plus I’m going to leave scooters alone as well ’cause they have their own history and deserve to be looked at as a major branch on the two wheeled-tree unto itself. As far as how deep I’m willing to go into the annals of history, I’m going to say “all the way.” Let’s get to it.

2020 CCM Spitfire Bobber Stealth

2020 CCM Spitfire Bobber Stealth

A blacked out edition of the original work of art by the “SkunkwerX” division

Reminiscence of the Supermarine Spitfire, a British fighter aircraft from the times of World War II, the CCM Spitfire is the brainchild of a specialist division within the shackles of CCM called ‘the SkunkwerX team’. Launched first in 2017, all 150 of them were sold in the first week itself. The Bobber variant that came in 2018 had a butch floating leather seat to represent the Americas in the 30s’, and it too was a steal.

For 2020, CCM has decided to go all black, and have released Stealth editions of the Spitfire models, including this Bobber craving for constant attention. The bike was built with a custom hand-built chassis setup and a bespoke tank, which now comes in a murkier appeal, courtesy the dark paint job and rims. Chassis components also see an upgrade for the Stealth model.

2020 MV Agusta Superveloce 800

The F3 800-derived engine is a performance monster

Italian marque MV Agusta throws its hat into the retro-tastic ring in 2020 with its Neo-Classic Racer model, the Superveloce 800. Clearly a modern machine, the factory managed to incorporate the flavor of the old café racers to deliver an interesting blend indeed. A high-compression triple delivers 148 horsepower with an electronics suite that gives the machine multiple personalities to match your own attitude and skillset. Make no mistake, this is a racebike through and through, but one built for the road rather than the racetrack, just like the original café racer bikes.
