My next ADV bike will be another 690 or a custom thumper. Think KTM exe frame with rally fairing and a duke 390 motor. 42 hp is enough for me.
Maybe the new 450 adventure bike from (admittedly somewhat obscure) British manufacturer CCM will be your cup of tea then!
130 kg dry, 17 litre tank, BMW powerplant wtih ~40 hp. Supposedly goes into production in May this year. Retails for 7995.
