Video: Extreme adventure test - part one

Published: 11 June 2012

Four bikes. A Dakar hero. 100+ miles off-road. Just one question: can adventure bikes live up to their billing?

We took the BMW R1200GS, Yamaha XT1200Z Super Tenere, Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200 and KTM 990 Adventure on an off-road adventure and to really test their abilities, we enlisted Stan Watt, who finished 34th in this year's Dakar Rally.
