HONDA CONFIRMS PRODUCTION OF ITS BIG ADVENTURE SCOOTER
HONDA has this morning confirmed production of its NC750-powered X-ADV adventure scooter with the release of these pictures.
The machine revealed at the 2015 EICMA Milan show as the ‘City Adventure’ concept will debut in its production ready state at the same event this year, on November 8.
Specifications haven’t been revealed yet but we know it’s powered by the 745cc parallel-twin engine from the NC750 range, making 54hp and 50lbft in the NC750X.
Honda has confirmed the X-ADV will have the automatic Dual Clutch Transmission system shared by other models in the range.
The firm says it’s a ‘new breed of machine’ with ‘long travel suspension to handle the roughest road surfaces’.
The firm said in a release: ‘At the same time, the X-ADV offers the practicality of a five-stage adjustable windscreen and storage space for an off-road style helmet.
‘The X-ADV continues Honda’s long tradition of finding new ways to create products that enhance and enrich its customers’ lifestyles. In keeping with its innovative concept, the X-ADV will come with Honda’s unique Dual Clutch Transmission – and the spirit of adventure – as standard fitment.
‘The X-ADV will be shown to the public for the first time at the EICMA show in Milan, from 8 to 13 November 2016. Full technical specifications will also be available at this time.’
The X-ADV is due to join Honda’s 2017 range.
