At a mass launch for the European market, Honda released the Honda X-ADV 2021 adventure scooter. The changes to the X-ADV are not only of a cosmetic nature, but the X-ADV has undergone a complete change to the frame with this year’s model 3 kg lighter than the previous model.
Defined by experts with a list of qualities, the new model 2021 Honda X-ADV is considered the largest of the manufacturers. The new 2021 Honda X-ADV is also characterized by comfort, speed and performance. These data are taken into account when selecting a consumer. The driver must enjoy driving and breaking positions to have impressive dexterity.
The Honda X-ADV has an innovative design with an engine that is larger than its competitors. The lighting is modern and the LED lighting ensures better visibility. This motorcycle also has a windshield that can be adjusted to five positions depending on the needs of the rider. Another big difference is the positioning options for driving, which can make the legs more comfortable while driving.
The motorcycle and scooter combination also makes the riding position more vertical, although it remains seated and not installed like a motorcycle. Comfort is the hallmark of the scooter. The wide two-tier seat, apart from the trunk under the seat, is made possible by a more sloping motor and the use of a slightly smaller rear wheel with 15-inch rims. For the legs, the platform also allows you to straighten your legs and rotate them in a more relaxed manner.
The 2021 version gets some nice updates to the technology with a ride-by-wire throttle that now governs the Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) and allows for finer control over the traction control system. The system now also works on three intervention levels compared to the two previous intervention levels.
Technology updates include a new 5-inch TFT dashboard and a Honda smartphone voice control system. This feature was first introduced on the Honda Forza 750 and allows drivers to interact with the smartphone using buttons and voice through the Honda app.
The two-cylinder engine is a compact and powerful powerhouse. You know what adventure you have planned for your X-ADV. That is why we have reduced the weight by 2 kg and given it more peak power of 43.1 kW (with 69 Nm torque) through revised intake, cam control and exhaust.
With Throttle By Wire control, four standard driving modes cover most conditions while managing engine power and engine braking, ABS and dual clutch transmission. Honda’s preferred torque regulation level offers much better control over the three levels and also adapts. All riding modes can be easily selected via the TFT screen and the left handlebar switch. The USER option allows you to fully customize the performance of your X-ADV.
