I see the smaller adventure bikes making a big appearance in the future. The problem is where are they, I don’t see too many? Somehow the BMW F800GS doesnt seem to fit into the category of a smaller adventure bike and the G310GS is a bit small. Honda XR650L looks good and is probably one of the last big bore singles we will see. The Yamaha 700 Tenere will be an interesting alternative when launched. The KTM 500 EXC-F is an enduro bike and not an adventure bike. What happened to the KTM 790R we were expecting in 2018? One might be able to convert the Husky 701 into an adventure bike by adding expensive extras but at what cost? The KLR 650 is an option. I wouldn’t like to take Suzuki’s DL650xa trough Van Zyl’s pass.
