If you are thinking of going on an adventure, then a motorcycle is the perfect vehicle for such an undertaking. A motorcycle allows you to soak up the sights, sounds and smells of the various locations you pass through. Adventure motorcycles in particular, which are available from motorcycle importers, are very versatile and will allow you to tackle all kinds of terrain, whether it is asphalt, dirt, or off-road wooded trails.
The choices available are rapidly expanding, but here are some of my suggestions for adventure motorcycles that will not disappoint you on a long-haul tour or when looking for a place to camp in the wilderness.
KTM 790 Adventure R
This bike by the Austrian company, KTM AG, is suitable for the lone rider. KTM is more of an off-road motorcycle and can tackle the most difficult terrains with relative ease. I recommend this bike for those who are looking for durability rather than speed. This bike goes for about $13,699.
Honda Africa Twin
The Honda Africa Twin gets its name from the Paris-Dakar rally, which is arguably the most extreme off-road rally in the world. That is a clear indicator that this is possibly the greatest long-distance motorcycle on the market. With an engine capacity of 1,084cc and an asking price of $17,199, the Honda Africa Twin is an exceptionally reliable bike. If you’re looking for a long-distance and challenging adventure, this is the bike for you
Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE
I highly recommend the Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE for all off-road enthusiasts. With a lifted suspension and exceedingly good traction, this bike is perfectly adapted for dirt roads. It has an engine capacity of 1,200cc and goes for $15,400.
Yamaha Super Tenere
Named after the Ténéré region of the Sahara desert, which offers the ultimate test of man and machine, this bike is perfect for those riders who would love to test their limits of endurance. The Yamaha Super Tenere has an engine capacity of 1199 cc engine and a 6-speed gearbox. Despite its hardiness, this bike also offers welcome comfort for the rider. The asking price of $16,299 is not exorbitant, given its capabilities.
BMW R1250 GS Adventure
BMW is a household name and its motorcycles need no introduction, having proved their reliability in remote areas of the world. The BMW R1250 GS Adventure is highly recommended for adventure touring. With an engine capacity of 1,254cc and an asking price of $17,895, the BMW R1250 GS Adventure is a good investment.
