In today’s episode we will cover the all-new 2020 bikes within the category that are pushing horsepower and torque yields even higher, while adding the latest electronics and rider assistance packages.

After being sold on the European market for 20 years, Yamaha’s iconic sport tourer is retiring after this model year, and it looks like it is going out with a bang. Both the AE and AS version of FJR1300 are getting unique Ultimate Edition packages.
Triumph Tiger 900 GT and GT Pro: triumphmotorcycles.co.uk/motorcycles/adventure/tiger-900
The new Triumph Tiger 900 is a model that morphs both on and off-road features, with the base, GT and GT Pro Trims being a sport-touring leaning trio.
Suzuki V-Strom 1050: suzukicycles.com/Product%20Lines/Cycles/Products/V-STROM%201050/2020/DL1050XA.aspx
All-new for the 2020 model year, the Suzuki V-Strom 1050 has been announced as replacement model for the previous gen V-Strom1000. Despite its name suggesting a bigger engine, the motorcycle keeps the previous 1037cc mill, that, however, is revised to produce more horsepower and return better MPG numbers.
Honda Africa Twin: powersports.honda.com/street/adventure/africa-twin
The Africa Twin is a better fit in the Adventure touring class, but since this bike was missed in the episode dedicated to adventure bikes of 2020, I had to redeem myself and at least mention it here.
KTM 1290 Super Duke GT: ktm.com/sl/sports-tourer/1290-super-duke-gt/
The arrival of the 1290 Super Duke R for the 2020 model year, means that the touring-oriented modification will be updated in the nearest future as well. For now, though, it will keep riding on the platform introduced in 2018 which is still worthy of mention in this video.

!!! IMPORTANT CORRECTION !!! Ducati Multistrada 1260 has 170mm of wheel travel front and rear, not 17 inches. Sorry for the mistake.
Most of these are just sportbikes, motorcycles without luggage are not tourers. Lightweight bikes don't fare well in the wake of tractor trailers and crosswinds. And look at the knee bend on these, no thanks.
Just go for the tracer 900
Bmw copied the fj09 with their f900xr
Like the bikes but way overpriced
The BMW’s must have parked too close to a Multistrada and some rubbed off
Maybe I blinked my eyes and missed it, but I didn't see the Yamaha Niken GT in there anywhere. It has all the hardware to recommend its inclusion in that field and it also offers one feature I have never seen on another bike (besides the obvious third wheel): every rider that posted a youtube video of their first ride aboard the Niken ended up gigglig as they rode. Name me one other bike that has ever had that effect upon its riders.
Bikes are more sport, not much for tour in my opinion. But I am getting old and like comfort. I like my trophy se
I would definitely pick the KTM
Love my dual sport Duc Multi enduro. 160 hp.
aren't most of these adventure touring bikes, i know it doesn't make a huge difference when you are touring but it does change their characteristics a bit.
Why is Yahama discontinuing the FJR 1300?! Out of all the sports touring bikes it is the only one I like. Overall it has everything I look for, its a real bike and most attractive in design. Its the perfect size, has the perfect look, and specs.
You dont believe adventure bikes and sport tourers are different categories of bike? 🙄
Those AT shots are not of the 2020 1100 models. As you mentioned the new 6.5" TFT, you even showed the older LCD.
Some great-looking bikes, thanks.
I wish I still had my 2013 V-Strom 650.
Like a fool I swapped it for a new Tmax530DX, but have barely ridden it in the 18 months I have owned it.
I really need to gat back to actual bikes, and a keeper this time.
New 1050 Strom maybe? Or CB100 with touring mods?
Sorry, but I cannot understand 80% of what you say. Please slow down.
The cb4x is my liking
Will Yamaha be replacing the FJR1300 with an new model tourer?
and the africa twin displayed is the 2019 model ?? no 2020 model??
Another brilliant video Mate with so many great bikes to choose from I think buying these days would be a real head scratcher.
Tracer 700 FTW
Love the FJR's I just hate it when these motorcycle manufacturers make last models only in Black. Black for me is THE most horrible colour for a motorcycle. We need more choices of colour. I've been put off buying a new bike simply on the years colour scheme of choice.
I fancied the KTM SA1090, but it is only sold in the R version in the US – stupid really because nobody does serious off road on them. The 1290 is trouble waiting to happen with all the electronics – who needs the grief.
The Tracers still suffer from an ill thought out riding position, adventure/tourers but they left on rear sets from a sport bike, so your feet are tucked up behind your butt – great for a day's touring, your arms will drop off. WAKE UP YAMAHA.
still love my Versys!
The R1250RS is a shaft drive sport tourer. I think it is over 500lbs but it still rips pretty good. Nice video
noo wayyy is the Triumph Tiger 900 GT and GT Pro has the same price according to this video? ($12,350) THAT'S IT! IT IS THE BEST.
CB4X looks amazing
I like Kawasaki ninja 1000 SX, Ducati Multistrada 1260S and BMW S1000XR , I think their design is beautiful
When did motorbikes get so ugly?
Ugly, ugly, ugly, ugly, all of them.. EVEN THE DUCATI!
Too many sharp lines and all the manufacturers are trying to make their bikes look "futuristic"
AND that Honda concept has just blatantly stolen design cues from Husqvarna..
WHY IS EVERYONE FAWNING OVER THESE UGLY MONSTROSITIES?
What the fuck is the point in owning an "adventure" bike that you will NEVER take off-road!?
Your name isn't Ewan McGregor!
Edit: Nice video, well put together!
And the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce??
mentioning the HP/TQ numbers without the weight of the bike is useless.
You may have 100lb/ft of torque on your 400lb bike or 900 lb bike. One would be fun, the other, boring.
The multistrada has, ah, 17” rear suspension? How did that make it past the proofing stage? 😜
Triumph tiger 900 rally
Tracer 700's new look has gotten it in first place, above the NC750x, on my next bike list
Very useful information bro
I cant watch rn, I gotta get ready for school, a 7 I need to get ready
Here is an analysis of the latest news and rumors regarding the upcoming models to the sport touring segment. Which of these gets you excited the most?
