GOODBYE TARMAC, HELLO ADVENTURE
A crossover styled machine, with strong off-road ability.
To make people sit up and take notice you have to do something entirely different, and the Honda X-ADV does just that. Conceived and developed by Honda’s R&D team in Italy, it brings a new look to our adventure line-up. There’s no mistaking the X-ADV anywhere. It stands out from the crowd with a blend of sophistication and ruggedness that runs from front to rear – it’s in a class of its own.
GO HAVE FUN
A motorcycle that thinks it’s an SUV and looks well beyond the city limits.
The X-ADV’s agility makes light work of the everyday ride through town traffic; but come the weekend, you can set your sights much further afield.
Technology and design coexist perfectly to deliver strong all-round performance.
The X-ADV is built round a 745cc twin-cylinder engine that has plenty of getaway torque in town, and drive to take you up a steep off-road track. Combined with a Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) – similar to the Africa Twin – you get seamless gear changes over all kinds of terrain. Dirt track or tarmac, the choice is yours.
When the call for adventure comes through loud and clear, the X-ADV is happy to oblige, just hit the G switch then hit the trail.

A brighter view
The twin slim headlights are bright LED, so you won’t miss a thing. They’re designed as an integral part of the front fairing and are divided by a sporty mesh grill - adding extra aggression to the X-ADV’s stare.
Good proportions for one or two-up riding, the seat is made with premium materials to make sure a long journey is a comfortable one. It's just the right height for the city, riding in town traffic, or anywhere in the countryside and provides excellent visibility with an upright riding position.
It wouldn’t be a crossover without the hand guards. They're the same as the Africa Twin and not just for looks either; they keep the wind-chill and weather off your hands and protect them from stones and off-road debris.
The X-ADV has a strong stainless, 17-inch spoked front wheel that ensures greater control and handling on both smooth tarmac and rough terrain. Fitted with dual-purpose, block-pattern tyres, they’re perfectly suited to the X-ADV’s crossover looks and rugged attitude.
The X-ADV’s screen adjusts without tools from low to high – through five positions – for greater wind and weather protection. The total height difference is 136mm, with an 11° angle difference between the highest and lowest points.
