Koga Miyata World Traveller
Price: About $3,000
Specs: Aluminium frame, Shimano Deore XT components, Tubus racks, kickstand, Cateye lights, Continental Travel Contact tires
Who has used it: Amaya and Eric, Mark Beaumont, Tim & Cindie Travis (they now tour on other bikes).
Upsides: Good reputation for quality. Comes with plenty of extras like racks, lights and bottle cages, so the price is pretty much all-inclusive.
Downsides: The aluminium frame may be a deterrent to cyclists determined to have steel (which is easier to weld if your frame cracks). Tim & Cindie Travis dropped their Kogas because they said the headsets were non-standard and hard to replace.
