Honda is adding a new 745cc member to its Forza maxi-scooter lineup in Europe, alongside an updated 125 model and a new 350 model. The new 2021 Honda Forza 750 is essentially an urban GT version of the more adventuresque X-ADV, but also somewhat of a replacement for the NC series Integra. Like its two forebears, unfortunately, we don’t expect Honda to bring the Forza 750 to the U.S.
The Honda ADV150 may soon be coming to the U.S., as the California Air Resources Board has certified the scooter for the 2021 model year. [UPDATE: Honda has submitted VIN data for the ADV150 with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, further confirming it will be coming to the U.S. as a 2021 model]
Honda has released a new, smaller version of its X-ADV scooter for the Indonesian market. The new 2020 Honda ADV 150 is styled after the 745cc X-ADV, and while it may not be as capable off-road as its larger sibling, Honda says it’s very able to the diverse terrain and road conditions of Indonesia.
Here’s an oddball two-wheeler that no one had asked for yet many are liking, Honda’s X-ADV scooter. Using the 745cc parallel-Twin with a dual-clutch transmission from the NC700/750 series, the X combines scooter ease of use with splashes of adventure-bike ruggedness.
A year ago at EICMA, Honda debuted its intriguing City Adventure concept, combining an adventure-bike design with a scooter platform. Today, Honda officially presented the final production version in the 2017 X-ADV. At the moment, the X-ADV has only been announced for Europe and it’s not likely to be brought over to the U.S.
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 concep t 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.
Honda has released a new video teasing its upcoming adventure scooter. The new video is longer and offers a better look at the scooter, which we expect to be sold under the name “ X-ADV,” than the first teaser video released last month. The latest teaser shows the scooter tackling some off-road terrain on the island of Sardinia before heading into an urban area.
