Adventure is a loosely used term.....no spoked wheels, too much power and too heavy....very nice but not a real adventure bike...

I bet it won't hold up too well in the clay.

Hey, for some people, 800 miles on the interstate is a great adventure, and in that regard, I'm sure this bike would be lovely. I just wouldn't want to take it too far off-pavement.

Besides, with optional sat-nav, you should be able to completely avoid the slick clay on your way to Starbucks.

Well really this is more of a "sport tourer" like the multistrada. Ive taken a multistrada across country. Yes I wouldnt take it in some heavy off road, but for canyon carving and touring this is a badass ride.

Like I said, I'm sure this bike would be awesome on the super-slab, but I don't like the "adventure" label, as that has strong off-road connotations. Either that, or I've just been hanging out over at ADVrider too much. One of these days I'd love to have a BMW touring bike, and I'm kind of kicking myself for not buying the K1200GT when my wife gave me the green light a couple of years ago.

Completely off-topic, but I need to get my Sprint side-by-side with your Speed Triple sometime. I am curious just how similar they are (thinking about sliders, and possibly putting an S3 belly pan on).

The engine is the same, but a different Frame. The sliders should work though because they just bolt in the engine mounts and since you dont have fairings should be legit. Belly pain, might have to look on that for sure.

It is a sport bike with slightly longer suspension travel. Just means you can ride over the curb at your favorite bike night restaurant or pub without finding the handicap ramp.

P.S. I still find it appealing like I do the multistrada.
