Bikepacking and Cycle Touring

What is the difference between Bikepacking and Cycle Touring?

I like this explanation from usa.innoracks.com

Bicycle touring and bikepacking are both wonderful ways to see the world by bike. Both involve covering longer distances with all the gear you need to overnight, and tend to minor repairs as you go. If you aren’t an avid cyclist, however, it can be hard to tell the difference between the two.

Bikepacking is the off-road version of bicycle touring. Think of bikepacking as the adventure cycling version of thru-hiking or overlanding. Bikepackers tend to use mountain bikes or special bikepacking bikes and cover a variety of terrain from dirt roads to rocky trails. Cycle touring, however, is often attempted with road bikes and special touring bikes.
