The adventure touring motorcycle is a dual-sport motorcycle that allows long-range touring both on-road and off-road capabilities.
Adventure tourers have high ground clearance (for off-road purposes), large fuel capacity, under-stressed engines for high reliability. They may have wire-spoked wheels with road-legal knobby tires, engine protection bars and skid plates (to protect the engine and transmission during off-road use), and tough metal panniers to carry luggage.
- Ideal for both on and limited off-road riding
- Taller seat height
- Upright riding position with mid-range handlebars
- Engine sizes can range from 350cc to 1300cc
- Good for intermediate/advanced riders (make sure you can sit comfortably with both your feet on the ground)
