Not much I can say here besides this bike in any of its guises is a winner. I would have one tomorrow. It has inspired me to delve into the whole adventure bike world. I don't have the cash laying around to buy one, but if I did, I would be out in the shed washing it now.
For those with a bit extra in the bank account, there is also a whole host of accessories available for the trip around Australia. Accessories such as a centerstand, quick shifter, top and side boxes, a rally seat, rally footpegs, and much more are available for Honda Genuine Accessories.
Before I wrap up, it should be noted that 12 bikes made the 2000km trip, and there was no break downs or breakages. The worst was a flat tyre and an oil filler plug that disappeared.
And to wrap up on the model variants, I would say I have heard some talk about how the base Twin model is more for off-road, and the Adventure sport is more for touring. I would disagree. I found the Adventure sport more than capable off-road. It is a bit heavier, but I had no problem with it, and I think I rode it pretty hard for a whole lot of kilometres in some of Australia's toughest terrain.
Ahhh, if I just had the cash, and the time. For more information and specs Click Here
