Honda has confirmed it’s set to release a new, smaller capacity version of its X-ADV adventure scooter. Called the ADV 150, we’ve been telling you there’s a baby X-ADV on the way for ages – and now we’ve been proved right after it was revealed at the Gaiikindo Indonesia International Auto Show in Jakarta, Indonesia last week.
Honda has finally revealed a smaller capacity version of its 750cc adventure scooter, the X-ADV – and it’s a little 150cc machine that’ll be right at home in the city.
Powered by a 149.3cc single-cylinder 4-stroke engine, it’ll kick out 14.5hp at 8,500 rpm and 13.8 Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. Elsewhere, parts suggest the ADV 150 will be much happier in town and cities rather than tackling trails. It’s got more traditional telescopic forks up at the front; while there’s twin Showa shocks at the rear. Instead of the spoke rims, the 150 comes with alloy wheels (14″ up front and 13” at the rear) – though they will still be shod with dual sport rubber. There’s also a pair of daisy-shaped disc – one up front and one at the rear which are monitored by the ABS or CBS (depending on model).
It’ll measure 1,950mm long, 763mm wide, and 1,153mm high – and it’ll weigh in at either 132kg or 133kg depending on the version (CBS or ABS). It’s equipped with a large-screen full digital dash, adjustable two-step wind screen, smart key and alarm system – and 28 litres of storage under the seat.
Available in Indonesia for IDR 33.5 million (just shy of £2000) for the CBS model and IDR 36.5 million (around £2100) for the ABS model – sadly, there’s been no news about Honda bring the new scooter to the European market just yet. Chances are we won’t see a 150cc machine on British shores, but there could be scope for Honda to use the new ADV 150 as a base for either a 125cc or 300cc version.
