Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has patented the Honda X-ADV, a scooter which seems to have decent touring and adventure capability as well. Now, HMSI has planned just one all-new product for the 2018-19 financial year, and it could be anything from an entry-level performance motorcycle to another commuter offering, but the latest news has come as quite a surprise.
Honda X-ADV is a scooter which has both on-road and off-road capability, and was first showcased at the 2016 EICMA motorcycle show. Designed by Honda's R&D centre in Rome, the X-ADV is quite the crossover, in two-wheeled terms, that is, with bold and rugged styling with a face and colour combination faintly reminiscent of the Honda Africa Twin. The X-ADV gets a five-step adjustable windscreen for long hours on the highway, multi-function LCD instrument panel and 21 litres of underseat storage capacity.
The Honda X-ADV is powered by a 745 cc engine, which makes 54 bhp at 6,250 rpm and peak torque of 68 Nm at 4,750 rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission, just like the Honda Africa Twin's. The DCT has three modes in all, a 'D' or normal 'drive' mode, 'S' for sport, which shifts the gears at higher revs, and a full manual mode.
