I ride a 250 4 stroke (KLX), used to have one as my only bike and did some touring on it.

I like 250s,but I also have two 250 2 strokes and a 640 Adventure in the shed, they all have there place.

My main attraction to the 250 is fuel economy and relative weight (My 2ts are lighter, but it is lighter than most 650 class bikes), but as soon as you load it up with gear and sit on highway speeds, they weigh almost as much as a loaded up 650 and they chew just as much fuel (my three KLXs, DR650 and KTM 640 all got between 5 and 6L to 100Klms on trips).

I don't mind touring on a 250, but if I was buying a bike for touring, it would be 600cc+.

Some will be excited about it, and I'm glad they may have found the bike for them, but I don't see a point in a first world 250cc Adventure bike.

Shouldn't a "Rally" bike carry more fuel than that, even for a 250cc?
Would you ride off into the desert with a tank that small?

Yep, dual exhausts.

But is only a concept bike, so in theory it is just to show what they can do.

Most production bikes that come from concept bikes share very little with the concept bike.
