What is an Adventure Motorcycle

So what exactly is an adventure motorcycle? An adventure motorcycle is often used on long rides along paved and unpaved roads. Adventure motorcycles can be grouped into the overarching category of dual sport or enduro motorcycles.

They have longer suspension of six or more inches, to absorb the imperfections of dirt roads, double track trails and perhaps single track trails.
