The 2017 Honda X-ADV is classed as a fresh breed of machine, fusing the appeal of adventure with high-quality performance and practicality to deliver comfort, whether tackling the urban commutes or the weekend thrills. Each design stroke oozes sophistication and ruggedness, from the upright riding position giving superb visibility to the long travel suspension to handle the toughest terrains. The nimble, yet fully loaded Honda X-ADV expresses the true spirit of adventure along with its array of modern features, including the Smart Key function that allows for convenience on a daily basis. The 5 way adjustable screen and the Africa Twin hand guards aim to increase rider ease, ensuring the rider can continue to forge new experiences, no matter what the terrain.
With its stylish, rugged body and elevated stance the Honda X-ADV puts an off-road ready attitude and intent right out there. And the tough looks are matched to practicality; the frame has been designed to allow 21L of storage capacity under the seat. The X-ADV is also equipped with a 5-way adjustable screen, tapered aluminium handlebar, Africa Twin hand guards, Rally-style instrument display and centre stand. A Smart Key system delivers day-to-day convenience.
Long travel suspension front and rear absorbs the hits, backed up by rugged 17-inch/15-inch front and rear spoke wheels and block-pattern tyres. Dual radial-mount four-piston calipers provide ample braking power with ABS control.
Honda’s Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) is standard equipment and for X-ADV application selects lower gear ratios for smarter response in D mode; 3 levels of S mode are available with shift patterns to allow sportier riding. Perfectly matched to DCT the X-ADV’s 745cc twin cylinder engine puts out strong low-to-mid range torque, delivering attention-getting acceleration from very low rpm. It also returns 27.9km/l (WMTC mode).
