The Kawasaki KLR 650 is a bike that has a reputation as the “gateway drug” for the Adventure Motorcycle culture. Riders with a desire to ride dual-sport can pick one up at a price that’s relatively lower then most entries in the segment and once they’re hooked they move to a BMW GS or KTM 990 and never look back.
This year, when Suzuki introduced the re-vamped and updated V-Strom DL1000, eyes across the adventure motorcycle industry turned their gaze upon the industry’s newest offering and the reviews have been positive across the board.
Touratech-USA’s General Manager, Paul Guillien, spent a few days in the backcountry testing BMW's 2013 F800GS, as well as the accessories our team installed, including our Expedition Skid Plate, Works Footpegs, Upper Crash Bars and more.
Electric anticipation surrounds the shipment of KTM's new 1190 Adventure R. Replacing the tried-and-true 990 Adventure, KTM's new 1190 is a 148hp, gravel-eating adventure motorcycle offering precise handling, class-leading braking, and a suspension capable of handling even the most extreme off-road conditions.
There's no doubt that BMW's new water-cooled R1200GS is a capable adventure touring motorcycle. With 125hp, spoke wheels, dynamic suspension, cruise control and an assortment of other options, the new GS is everything we expected it to be, and then some. But there's always some room for improvement.
