Dual-sport bikes have always seemed too tall – this bike’s seat height ranges from 31·9 to 35in – they offer a combination of three optional seats and standard adjustability, something I hear is getting more and more popular. Gee, I just wonder if that’s the influx of women riders being heard, here? Probably we will never know for sure. I look forward to giving it a spin though. I wonder how long it will take for long-distance tourers to exchange the smallish fuel tank for a larger one and other modifications for making it a round-the-world touring machine like the KLR 650. But maybe that’s not even in the same class…And really, maybe I’m being cantankerous, but who truly needs 1200 cc’s?
