And the KTM Super Duke isn't an adventure bike (unless adventure is defined as sitting on 173 HP). Too bad they didn't include the KTM 690R Duke. It has a revised LC4 engine with two counter-balancers (solves the big thumper vibration problems), fully adjustable suspension and cornering TC/ABS. Sadly, the "R" version is not coming to the U.S. (just the stripper 690 Duke).

For Benelli, it looks like their owners from China have some funds available for new product development. The 500cc adventure bike looks like it fits in with the wire spoke wheels and aggressive treads. The CCM too, which has a head start getting to market. There may be a CCM 450GP owner or two in this forum.

I'm sure I recall reading somewhere that a manufacturer had increased their beak size in order to prevent mud/sand/general muck from coming up over the front of the bike.

Might have been when I was reading about the new Ducati "enduro". Which is lovely but having sat on one I just cannot contemplate ever going near a green lane with one, let alone doing what you see in their latest video. They are big (and pricey).

I like look of the Benelli though.
