Honda X-ADV

RiDE (UK) - - New Bikes -

De­signed by Ital­ian Honda man Daniele Luc­ch­esi, the unique X-ADV uses much of the same engine and chas­sis from the firm’s In­te­gra scooter. The 745cc par­al­lel twin is the same one used in the In­te­gra and NC750 mod­els. It’s only avail­able with DCT, a switch­able auto sys­tem of­fer­ing Drive and three lev­els of Sport and Man­ual modes. Bar-mounted but­tons al­low you to over­ride the auto set­tings.

A 17-inch front wheel is one of the se­crets to the Honda’s very pre­dictable steer­ing. The spoked rims are fit­ted with tube­less tyres and slowed by ABS brakes with both front and rear calipers op­er­ated by bar-mounted levers. Drive is by chain.

Un­der­seat stor­age is large enough to take a full-face hel­met, as is the stan­dard fit­ment top box. Nei­ther will hold an ad­ven­ture-style lid with a peak though. Ig­ni­tion is key­less and a rocker switch opens the lock­able seat and fuel cap cover. The hand-ad­justable screen is step­less.
