For touring I would get as new of a four stroke as you can afford. They have come a long way in the past 10 years with Yamaha leading the way.
The Ski Doo 900 Ace engine is quite surprising. I road a couple in West Yellowstone last year out towards Island Park and they both got up over 80 with me and had a top speed registered of 90 by someone. One had over 12,000 miles and the other had 7,500 and were fitted with nice features.
For touring though I would look at a four stroke for simple gas and go without having to ever add 2-stroke oil out on the trail.
