These are also dual-purpose motorcycles that can be ridden on pavement and off-road, but adventure, or ADV bikes, typically have larger engines and larger gas tanks and are built to take on many highway miles. ADV riders often outfit their bikes with all the luggage: side bags, a top case and a tank bag. Like the name says, adventure motorcycles are built for adventure. Many have fairings and a windscreen to protect the riders from wind, and many can be outfitted with auxiliary lights to provide better visibility when traveling to more remote areas. Many offer high-tech accessories such as heated grips and GPS. You might be surprised the types of terrain these rugged motorcycles can take on.
Dual-purpose or on-/off-road motorcycles, are street legal machines that are also designed to enter off-road situations. Typically based on a dirt bike chassis, they have added lights, mirrors, signals, and instruments that allow them to be licensed for public roads. They are generally taller than typical street bikes, with higher ground clearance and longer suspension travel to deal with rough terrain.
