I dont think 24bhp is enough for an adventure bike but if you fancy being different then go for it.
The report I just read suggests there could be a bigger engined version on the way so it might be smart to wait a while.
I have ridden in India but not this model and it was over 30 yrs ago, I would suggest a trip to India to try one and get your mind toally blown...
I just read this test ride and it makes me want to go back over there, maybe take my teenage son on a bucket list trip.
Many thanks for the reply....
Im not considering it as an adventure bike, more of a utility bike that could if needed get me 200+ miles in trip. The 400cc engine will be ample for most of its daily duties.
YouTube is showing lots of examples being put to good use in India and it does look very appealing. Go for it ... live the dream :toothy8:
..... I currently own a 1k Varadero and I find its being used for the exact opposite of whatI need a bike for.
Im using it to commute locally and very little trip work.
A wonderful bike buts wasted on me tbh..
Its for sale
I dont do much long distance riding now and I prefer to ride old classic bikes as I am not into fuel injection or electronic gadgetry.
I wish I had kept my last CX500 custom because it did everything I wanted a bike to do ,minimal servicing, reliable but I had to sell it to finance my latest bike build which will be ready for spring..
Now that I am over 60 its time to start slowing down a bit and just have a nice runner for the summer months..
