2017 Honda X-ADV Confirmed for EICMA

After teasing us with a couple of videos, Honda announced its adventure-styled scooter will enter production bearing the name “X-ADV” (which we were the first to report). The X-ADV was first previewed by the City Adventure concept at last year’s EICMA show so it’s no surprise that the production model will make its debut at this year’s show in Milan.

The X-ADV maintains the maxi-scooter shape but with hand guards, long-travel suspension, and a tall riding posture for some light off-road riding. The windscreen is adjustable between five positions and Honda says the storage space has enough room for an off-road style helmet.

From what we saw from the City Adventure concept, the X-ADV is based on Honda’s NC750 platform, likely sharing the same 745cc engine with a 270 degree crank and its twin cylinders banked forward at a 55-degree slant. Honda says its Dual Clutch Transmission will be offered as standard.

We’ll have more information and specifications when Honda presents the X-ADV Nov. 8 at EICMA.
