The Adventure isn't really a different model, it's more of an accessory package. Here's what makes an Adventure:
Different ineffective windscreen
Engine crash bars
Plastic pebble guard under the engine
Not-very-effective-but-good-looking side cases
I think a few people were successful in ordering a bare black DL1000A without the accessories that the dealer has to bolt on.
