If it's anything like the 2014 (and I believe it is, only supposed to be a little better) it will be quite capable for what you want to do. I raised the forks about 10mm and am very happy with how it handles in the twisties. (Honestly I can't say how much better that is than stock since I did it so long ago.) If possible, get the bike a couple months ahead of your trip so you can sort out things like luggage, seat, windscreen, lowered pegs, heated grips, etc.
