Although there were more Suzuki V-Strom 650 models in the top 10 models list, the BMW R 1200 GS series far outdistances the V-Strom 650 series when viewed across all model years. This series received almost a quarter of all KBB.com web hits for adventure touring motorcycles. The Yamaha Super Ténéré, which took the No. 1 spot on the list of the top 10 adventure- touring models in its 2012 embodiment, only ranked sixth on the list of most-researched adventure-touring series. Other series that narrowly missed appearing in the top 10 most-researched series list were the Ducati Hypermotard, the BMW F 700 GS and the Triumph Tiger Explorer series. MOST VIEWED ADV MAKE BMW was the most-researched adventure tour- ing make. In the first half of 2016, it did not claim as many KBB.com hits as it did in 2015. However, for the first half of 2017, the make has rallied, claiming 39 percent of KBB.com hits for adventure touring motorcycles and far outdis- tancing Suzuki, its nearest rival. KTM increased its share of KBB.com hits to tie with Ducati at 8 percent. Last year, Ducati received nearly twice as much interest as KTM.

KBB CONTINUED FROM PAGE 22 The Suzuki V-Strom lineup, including four 650 models, is the most represented series of ADV bikes on KBB.com of all-time. The BMW R 1200 GS is the most researched adventure touring series of bikes in 2017 on KBB.com.
