Video: Adventure Bikes 2013 - Off Road

MCN took the top dog of adventure bikes, the BMW R1200GS to South Wales to test it against Yamaha's stalwart Super Tenere, last year's winner the Triumph Explorer, and KTM's new pretender the 1190 Adventure R. As well as three days of road riding, we also took them off road with pro rider Llewellyn Pavey. brightcove.createExperiences();

My ideal bike

I wish KTM made an 800 or 900cc version of that bike, for me it would be perfect. 99% of my riding is done on As, Bs and Motorways, and those adventure bikes are super comfortable for that. The upright riding position and big seat means you can go on forever, but for me 1200cc is too heavy. You can still get a shitload of power from a 900, without it needing to weigh 250 kilos

@Yaki

Is that the same as all those Fireblades and Gixxer thou's with Chicken strips being used on track?? same argument... just a fad as they're not used anywhere near to their potential.
