Depends on what type of touring you want to do.
Fully supported tours where someone else carries your tent and supplies or credit card touring where you bring along a change of clothes and sleep at motels? Sure.
Loaded touring where you carry all of your clothes, supplies, tents, etc. Most likely not on this bike, unless you tow a trailer and have low enough gears and strong enough brakes for the hills.
The Allez models seem to be designed for competition or fast recreational riding, not for carrying much of a load.
