Showcased in concept format at EICMA last year, the new Honda X-Adv adventure crossover scooter is set to enter production in the coming weeks. The production-ready Honda X-Adv adventure scooter has made its global debut at the ongoing 2016 EICMA (Milan Motorcycle Show).
X-Adv is ideally suited for urban commuting. It boasts of a sense of adventure while performance, practicality and comfort. On-board features include a long swingarm, USD forks, wired wheels and ABS along with heated grips, high fenders and long travel suspension to manage challenging road conditions.
High riding position for better visibility, under seat storage space and 5 position adjustable screens for varying degrees of wind protection are also set to be seen on the new Honda X-Adv adventure moto-scooter.
Honda X-Adv is a crossover which is based on the Honda NC750X and Integra. It is powered by a 745cc parallel twin engine offering 54 PS power and 68 Nm torque with a DCT automatic transmission. It gets spoked wheels, 17 inch in front and 15 inch at rear. Dry weight stands at 238 kg, seat height at 820mm, storage space 21 liters, fuel tank 13 liters, 41 mm USD forks in the front with 153.5 mm of travel and adjustable rear shock with 150 mm of travel.
Equipment list includes 5-way adjustable screen, Smart Key system (no need to use key to start ignition), Rally-style instrument display, all-LED lighting, tapered aluminium handlebar. Honda claims it delivers a fuel efficiency of 79 mpg (27.97 kmpl).
The final production model looks similar to the Concept that was showcased at the last year’s EICMA show (images below). Honda X-Adv will first be launched in Europe and North America. It is highly unlikely that the Honda X-Adv will be launched in India, though it is to be remembered that Honda India is launching the African Twin with DCT automatic gearbox next year.
