A Honda X-ADV 300 Scooter Could Come to the U.S.

Honda Will Expand Its Adventure Scooter Line

Honda’s X-ADV recently passed up the BMW R 1200 GS in terms of sales in Europe. This makes it a true force to be reckoned with and Honda has realized its hit. The company now has a 150 version and is reportedly thinking of a 300 version, according to Motorrad. We’ve reported on this possibility before, but now the rumors are bubbling up again. The best part about the 300? It could be coming to the U.S.

Right now, no version of the X-ADV comes to the U.S., and with sales so high and the bike being such a formidable force in the market and on the road and off, it would only make sense for Honda to bring a version of it to the States. Personally, I think the big-boy X-ADV would sell reasonably well here, and the 300 won’t sell as well, but what do I know, right?

Why Not Bring More than One Size?

If Honda brings a 300 adventure scooter to market it will use the same 299cc engine that’s found in the Forza scooter. That’s a good engine that puts out 25 hp and 20 lb-ft of torque. Still, as much as I think people will get the 300, I can already hear folks saying that they need more power to consider something like that. If I were in charge of Honda, I’d bring the 300 and the current large X-ADV, which has a 745cc engine in it.

No matter the engine size, the bike will get a CVT transmission, some suspension with some long travel, allowing the bike to take on some pretty extreme terrain. The bike will also likely get spoked wheels and some reasonably aggressive tires to handle sand, mud, or whatever terrain you try to tackle. If Honda prices it right and markets it right, I think it could be a hit in the U.S., too.

  1. No! We want the 750! The roads and distances of the western US demand the 750 xadv. 300 just doesn’t cut it.

    1. The 750!!! Absolutely that is the one I would buy if I could. I currently have a Yamaha XMax, which is quite nice, but would love to upgrade.

    2. I would be very interested in the 750. I ride a 2012 Suzuki Burgman 650 and love it, but it is not good on dirt roads. I would like to be able to ride down dirt roads confidently.

  2. I would buy a 300 only because I’m a smaller rider, we need something lightweight and short! Not enough good choices for us on the market.
    Though maybe a 400 or 500?

  3. if you can handle 500, then 750 is going to be fine too. I have been waiting for X-ADV 750 too. I have ride many bikes for many years. And initially have the same thought with you, but after experiencing from 150cc, 250cc, 400cc, 650cc, 1150cc and 1200cc, I learned that even 1200cc (BMW R1200GS) is sometimes more controlable and comfortable than a 250cc motorcycle of different style and brand. X-ADV 750 is gonna to be very agile and relatively easy to ride compared with some 250cc cruiser or naked bike I can almost guarantee by looking at the weight and design.

  4. ADV 350X would be a great model in the U.S. for new to experienced riders, young and old.

  5. I have seen the performance and responsiveness of the Honda X Adv 750 cc in Europe, I think that in the USA, it would be the same should bring the 750 cc at once. I would buy it immediately. beautiful and strong motorcycle.

  6. Hi I love this chat box. I want all 3 adv 150cc ,300 cc and a 750 cc. Hurry up Honda. USA. And please allow global promotion s to be accepted towards USA buyers. This is a global company with global consumers. Let go honda p.s. Please accept crypto currency as a form of payment. Asap.

  7. The ADV 150 is already a fantastically thought out bike. Bring the 300 to compete with the Yamaha XMAX 300. If it’s at least as good, I’ll go Honda. And, PLEASE give us some color choices besides black.

    1. Hey Vin, I agree with you. I’d love to see a little higher displacement. Hopefully, the 150 is successful enough for Honda to do a 300 or 500.

  8. I’m still waiting with !!!CASH IN HAND, HONDA!!! For Honda to be bothered to sell me the 750.

  9. I’ve been on a Honda Forza 300 since 2015 and ever since I saw the X-ADV I knew that’s what I was waiting for. the DCT availability on a scooter format would really be great!

  10. Honda is losing a lot of sales to it’s competition. I am thinking about the BMW C650. It’s more power and superior range to the 150 from Honda.
    Why wait to bring the 750 here to the US?

  11. I have a PCX 150 now I love but would kill for more power be it 300/350 or 700/750. I have foot issues that make shifting and foot braking a challenge so hand only controls are a must for me but I really want to go faster.

  12. Yes to the 750.. Would buy one the moment it comes to the USA.. The street and off road capabilites is what I wwant.. Great for behind a Motor home instead of a tow vehicle !! Perfect for warm dry weather months.. Come on Honda make it happen
