ON THE EDGE OF THE ROAD
Our X-ADV leads the way. Combining the capabilities and performance of an adventure motorcycle, with the comfort, convenience and commuting ability of a large-capacity scooter, it’s a two-wheeled SUV that defies convention.
Infinite adventure around every corner
A premium urban explorer, capable of going from city block, to off-road trail (and back) in a heartbeat. The X-ADV turns every single ride into a unique experience. A tubular steel diamond-style frame, combined with the steering geometry and long travel suspension provides light and agile handling. The redesigned seat makes ground reach easier and new bodywork heightens a rugged style that the X-ADV has made its own.
Designed to support you
Throttle By Wire (TBW) control and four default riding modes optimise performance to suit conditions and terrain. And the X-ADV is flexible – you have the option to fully customise engine output and character, as well as the Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) shifting schedule, Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) and ABS level. In all default road riding modes, the ABS level is high; with GRAVEL mode selected ABS level is low, for efficient and consistent braking on loose surfaces. The rear indicators feature Emergency Stop Signal (ESS), which flashes the rear hazards under extreme braking.
No matter the terrain
Long-travel, 41mm cartridge-style Up Side Down (USD) front forks adjust for spring preload and rebound damping. They provide superb bump absorption on broken tarmac or rutted trails, and everything in between. The lightweight aluminium swingarm operates a single-tube, split-pressure monoshock, adjustable for spring preload to maintain optimum steering ability when loaded. The 17-inch front wheel and 15-inch rear use stainless steel rust-resistant spokes and contribute to the X-ADV’s capacity to soak up rough terrain.
The full-colour TFT screen offers intuitive control. You can also now link to many smartphone functions, such as navigation, calls, messages and music, via the new Honda Smartphone Voice Control system (available with Android™ and iOS™ devices). So, wherever you end up, you’re never out of touch. You can manage riding modes quickly and easily, as well as customise the information displayed to suit your preference.
LED DRL headlights
For piercing and consistent day time visibility. Sharp, dual LED headlights lead the way with bright, Daytime Running Lights (DRL) technology.
Throttle By Wire control and 5 riding modes
Set the engine how you want it. STANDARD riding mode is the mid-point base setting, SPORT turns up the excitement dial, with low HSTC, RAIN softens everything off and GRAVEL gives full power, with low HSTC and ABS. USER mode allows complete customisation.
Smart Key convenience
All the small details make a big difference. The Smart Key can be stored in your pocket. It operates the keyless ignition system, fuel cap and seat and also opens the (optional) Smart Top Box.
Six-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT)
Transform your riding experience as DCT has replaced hand clutch and foot levers with a clean up/down trigger shifter on the left handlebar. With a choice of Manual and Automatic modes at your fingertips, you’ll never lose that exhilarating connection to your bike – on or off the road.
Generous storage capacity
The under-seat luggage space has 21L volume and accepts a full-face adventure-style helmet; you’ll also find a USB Type-C socket for charging your smartphone.
More powerful, 745cc, 8-valve parallel twin-cylinder engine
69Nm of torque with 43.1kW peak power; the X-ADV can go from highway to trail in a flash, and the engine is tuned to deliver instant response. You also have an extra 600rpm to play with before the redline. And, for A2 licence holders, a 35kW conversion is available from your local Honda dealer.
