  • I stop reading when i saw the final drive is chain….adv/touring/sports touring shud not be using chains, its a hassle to maintain when u’re going for long distance touring. Who care much abt losing few ponies to a shaft drives or belts, its a touring bike & not a race bike, travelling in big mileage wutout the hassle to keep on lubing & cleaning every odd 1k km….wat a hasle

    • Shaft drive on middleweight adventure bikes = extra weight & extra cost. An adventure bike will be completely immobilised if shaft drive kaput, broken chain still can be fixed, even if u are in the middle of nowhere. Lubing/cleaning the chain is part & parcel of being an adventure rider.

        Arie hit the point right on the head. If you are in the middle of nowhere and your shaft breaks , chances of fixing it without parts is very low. However for a chain , much easier to fix and easy to carry a spare around as well. Yamaha Tenere and Honda Africa Twin the Goddaddy of adventure bikes are all chains.
