and low seat height is much more important.

Yeah, right, that's why all off road orientated bikes have a seat height around 25" just like a Softail Harley....

Jeez, just can't make it up.:cheesy:

Keep digging yerself a deeper hole.....

400cc Indian dual sport with similar power, a bit more torque.  but a hell of a lot more girth (weight).

RE 191kg - 7.8kg / HP  6kg / NM

CRF 144kg - 5.9kg / HP 6.4kg / NM

Now ... show me how the RE will be a better performer

Torque - which you cherish above all else - is virtually identical.

I'm sure after a month of Enfield 400 "adventure bike" ownership, you'll be on here telling us how gutless it is for two up touring....

I am looking forward to a road report on how the OP finds the RE

I really the bike reviews by Nathan in the video posted the OP - but everyone has their own perspective, and this is a review from a guy who chose a second hand 110cc postie bike to ride from Australia to UK.  I admire his ability and endurance, but not so sure about his viewpoint on bikes.

 

He's also had other bikes since his big trip, and his thoughts on the BMW 310 in another review were very interesting, but still, if you're baseline for adventure travel is a C110, anything's going to feel great.

 

Having said that, I had a good look at the Himalayan as it has a lot of virtues - but Nathan rode the UK spec bike with abs and improved quality control, not so sure about the Thai spec Himalayans?

 

But this sector is getting really interesting, with the improved 19 inch front wheeled CB500X, the Versys X300, the BMW G310GS, the CRF 250 Rally, the Enfield and the forthcoming KTM 390 adventure.

 

For me the ideal mid-sized adventure bike would either be the 2019 CB500X or a Versys x400 - which must be on the way soon?

I wasn't referring to an off-road bike, I was referring to one designed for the Himalayas. The clue is in the name, Himalayan 411 try to keep up lad.
