It goes without saying that adventure bikes are among the most versatile machines out there. Designed specifically to offer the comfort amenities of a touring bike mated with the go-anywhere capability of a dual-sport, these rugged two-wheelers have seen a surge in popularity in recent years. ADVs have become so popular in fact that manufacturers have begun releasing small-displacement adventurers in recent years. 

We've seen it in the likes of the Suzuki V-Strom 250 SX, and now, with Honda's new and improved CB190X in the Chinese market. As you probably know, Honda's CB range is among the most popular in the business, and has branched out to cover varying platforms. It could be argued that the CB500X was the first adventurous model based on the CB platform, and in essence, the CB190X takes the versatility of the CB500X and offers it in a package that's more approachable for beginner riders and city-dwellers.
