I have all but Adventure spec my EU to the Max ! List: Ikon Suspension front and rear , modified seat, barkbaster hand guards ,Oxford heated grips , SMMOTO crash bars and wider pegs , 12volt USB handlebar socket, Military camo handlebar pouch , modified Vartra rack and rear bag, home made tail tidy , Intercooler guard , dart screen and K60 Scout tires. So I am now so impressed with the UE in all conditions on Sunday went on HWY , backroads , twisties , dirt roads both hand parked and lose gravel, Muddy trails with red clay ! I can say the Scrambler with decent Suspension and tires ( K60 Scott ) will go almost anywhere and only a few places that will let your EU down they are : the deep creek crossing ( low height & Suspension travel ) - not much can be done there, also only a solo tourer ( to small fof any distance touring, tank size :13.5 LT ! Not the best but did get 245 kms the other day and had 1LT left in tank ! Thier is a fix a 3 or 5 LT mouned fuel container ( I have the five giving it 18.5 ) will post pics when complete mod , I'm thinking about riding mine around Australia next year.

It's a call back to the UJM's of the past. This bike can quite easily be whatever you want it to be..

Stripped down racer, go ahead. Suspension, low bars and rearsets.
Naked hooligan bike, sure. Unleash a bit more power, clean up the looks and add some crash bars.
Adventure bike, certainly! Throw on some luggage and chunkier tyres.

They seem very good in the dry , I hocked in the some twisties 25-55kph corners and was surprised at handling but they do make some road noise around 80kph.

I should hope any road legal tyre can handle cornering at 30mph and they make excessive road noise from 50mph up? Don't sound great for road use.
