Honda’s Take of a SUV version of a Scooter, the X-ADV

Everyone is getting on the SUV bandwagon, there is a demand for them globally. That is true for the wheel of 4 wheelers. Honda thinks the same might apply to their range of bikes. So, what happens when you bring a scooter offroad? You get the X-ADV.

The Honda X-ADV mixes SUV style and off-road appeal with a tough chassis, long travel suspension, four-piston radial mount brakes and strong performance from its 745cc twin-cylinder engine driving through Dual Clutch Transmission. A large under seat storage compartment, 5-way adjustable screen and Smart Key system ensure day-to-day convenience.

Now reaching dealerships across Europe, Honda’s X-ADV is the first vehicle to combine the comfort and convenience of a scooter with the spirit and dynamic performance of an adventure motorcycle. Appropriately for this latest example of Honda’s long tradition of innovation, a new promotional approach has been taken to bring the X-ADV to the attention of a wider audience.

Based on a briefing by Daniele Lucchesi and Maurizio Carbonara – the two engineers who initiated and led the project at Honda’s Rome R&D centre – five artists from across Europe were given the task of expressing the world of the X-ADV in their chosen medium.
