Value adventure: £4495 Sinnis Terrain 380 hits shops
Sinnis’s new small capacity adventure bike, the Terrain 380, has arrived in dealers at £4495. The 380 is the bigger brother to the Terrain 125 and is the company’s first larger capacity machine.
The Terrain is powered by a 380cc parallel twin making 37bhp/25.8lbft, so it’s A2 friendly but still has a decent amount of go. More impressive still is that it apparently boasts incredible fuel economy, so fill it to the brim and you’ll get a claimed 300 miles out of the 18-litre tank.

The rest of the kit is tempting with LED headlights, a flashy LCD dash and even optional tyre pressure sensors. Like numerous other adventure bikes, there’s a luggage option boasting over 100 litres of storage available but this time it’s £250 extra.
Sinnis Terrain 380 rivals
At a fiver shy of £4500, the Sinnis sits at the value end of the A2-licence adventure bike segment – costing considerably less than its mainstream European and Japanese rivals.
Starting in Europe, the current single-cylinder BMW G310GS starts at £5435; however will be updated for 2021, with the price likely to alter to reflect that. Elsewhere, would-be owners could also consider the £5149 Kawasaki Versys-X 300 and Suzuki V-Strom 250, which has disappeared from the firm’s line-up recently, but is available through remaining stock in dealers and on the used market.
Those after a quirky alternative could also look at the Royal Enfield Himalayan too, which starts at £4399 – making it slightly cheaper than the Sinnis. Simplistic, robust and producing just 24bhp, it’s another A2-friendly option to look at.
