I supposed that a bike that is often used for Round The World travel would have to be considered a touring bike.I agree with the above. I have often thought that a Honda Rebel 300 or 500 would be a good home for a DR 650 engine, or for that matter an XL650R engine.I think emissions regulations makes those bikes impossible. My understanding is that the big single won't meet a lot of new emissions standards, but that all current designs are "grandfathered" in.
I don't understand this topic. What's a touring bike? A bike you tour on.
BMW had the K75 in an RT, S, and standard. But ultimately discontinued.Honda's PC800 only lasted in production for a short time - but that was an unusually styled bike.
Honda PC800s are pushing 30 years old now, but have an avid following, which I recently joined, and can be had for 2 to 3 grand in good condition.
While I never warmed up to the "appliance white" ones, I do like them in red. Definitely a bike that was ahead of its time.
These days my definition of a touring bike: it needs the following: Hard bags, Wind protection, electric cruise control, a fuel range of 200 miles, min.
This is doable, easy. Triumph Tiger is available with cruise control and bags, weighs under 500 lb and will do 200 miles on a tank. But it's tallish.What you won't find, unless you modify something, is a bike that looks and rides like a Goldwing, with the weight of a Rebel.

What would Huzo say? Iím stuck in the 70ís so I would pick an airhead or a big or small block Guzzi. My v50 was bought new by the previous owner. He installed a BMW S fairing and rode across the country and back with his wife and luggage. I thought he was crazy until I got it out on the highway. I think if I were looking for a new smaller distance bike Iíd look at a new Royal Enfield or maybe a BMW vertical twin.
For under 500lbs and two up a Wee Strom is very hard to beat. Complete aftermarket support, factory tour package or customize your own, mid 50s mpg, and very low entry cost. No they don't tickle your sole but they are a heck of a swiss army knife.
