Honda unveiled a concept model in Milan today, the City Adventure possibly foreshadows a new development direction for Honda scooters. Besides the image above, no other information was provided regarding the City Adventure. Styling wise, it appears to be a scooter of adventurous nature with long-travel suspension, semi-knobby tires, and upswept exhaust. The windscreen is adjustable, and it appears to have ample under-seat storage.
Unlike the El Dorado, Audace and Touring SE, the three Moto Guzzi California 1400 variants on display at EICMA, the MGX-21 appears only to be a concept model. At least for now. The avant-garde design seems to pull some styling bravado from Victory, a few cues from Harley-Davidson’s Fat Boy and Street Glide, with an enclosed tail section borrowed from the Arlen Ness style guide.
Alongside the new 701 Supermoto production model comes a pair of scrambler concepts from Husqvarna. Dubbed the 401 Svartpilen (Swedish for “Black Arrow”) and 401 Vitpilen (“White Arrow”), the two concepts draw upon the company’s past while still offering a futuristic styling.
