Kona Sutra For Touring??.... (anyone have experience with them?)

Something modern caught my eye a little bit,...
I saw an older used Kona Sutra someone has for sale and was curious as to if anyone has one as their touring bike and how are they?
I believe the bike was a 2009 or 2010.

Thanks

Kona bikes are sweet and the sutra is a classical touring bike. Adventure cyclist did a review recently on it, Video Review: Kona Sutra | Adventure Cycling Association

Are you giving up on your vintage touring bike?

Thanks for the input...much appreciated. I knew of Kona but not much detail.

no I haven't given up my search for a vintage touring bike' in fact I found two that are fantastic bikes. It's just that this particular koan seemed interesting to me.
