I can only speak to my needs from an ADV bike...

reasonable ground clearance
capable of some not too gnarly off road stuff
a decent saddle and a nice distance between saddle and feet
capable of carrying a reasonable amount of gear
global servicing capability (well, for me that means all of Europe & North Africa)
minimum 150 mile range (it's not a lot but if I want more, I can always carry cans)
capable of cruising, comfortably, at about 90 mph
good farkle support
plenty of youtube support (I don't want to be the first to fix/repair/install anything on it)

I want to ride it, not develop it :)
