    Honda unveiled a small-displacement adventure tourer, the CBF190X Fight Hawk, in China at the 2016 China International Motorcycle Trade Exhibition. The CBF190X is powered by a 184cc SOHC air-cooled single-cylinder engine that produces 15 horsepower at 11,000 rpm and 11 lb.-ft. of torque at 7,000 rpm, mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

    With its Honda heritage colors, the styling of the new CBF190X is inspired by the CRF1000L Africa Twin. Although, it appears to be designed more for street use riding on 17-inch cast alloy wheels. Yet at 326 pounds (148 kg), it should still be able to scurry down a trail with ease. No doubt it will be an economical and reliable starter bike, perfect for riding around town or embarking on your first adventure.

    The CB190X will initially be released in the Chinese market. No word yet on whether Honda will release the CBF190X Fight Hawk globally, but this is yet another sign that the industry may be shifting its focus toward developing smaller displacement Adventure Bikes.

    Why is pretty obvious I would have thought.

    Because they think they can sell lots of them to their mass market clients. Unfortunately, that doesn’t include the half dozen or so adv farklemaniacs who might buy a production crf500. And then pull it to bits and change half of it anyway so it’s the “perfect” adv bike.
