I sat on the less "adventure" version at the bike show a few weeks ago. It looks and feels as sexy as an Italian bike should be, but as far as an ADV bike, it would be about as good as a Vespa- and has about the same amount of travel. It felt like a sprotbile to me.

So, in other words, it would fit the average Italian rider perfectly.
Posing seems to be more important than riding here, so if you remove that ugly skid plate, you'll be OK.

Tagesk is right. Posing seems to be the word....that bike has 18 liter fuel tank for great radius....

To Date - Seems bullet proof!

Been around for a while now on the Breva/Norge/Grisso/Sport1200 and asside from an early glitch with some that did a bearing that was definitely a bad batch issue there have been no reported failures and some are now getting up to 50,000Km on em.

I would have posted it all here for you to consider, but I'm on dialup and it would take some few hrs I don't have. Plus, for some reason I can't post shots here. Anyway, Hope you enjoy the reports.
I enjoyed those reports. Thanks for posting
