Honda noob here

Adventure as in that new model with the bigger tank and better suspension?
Going to be lekker tough then if it is extra high in serious technical terrain. Nice advantage to the taller guys

If i think of how much Steve and Loupie have worked on AT on our trips they should be ahead in the technical and flatwheel stakes :imaposer: :imaposer:

Nope - these are still standard 2017 spec DCT models ...
Easiest way to check is the colour of the front shocks - old one's - "bright" gold ... new one "copper brownish gold" ...
