Honda’s X-ADV 750 scooter recently showed how tough it really is at the 2019 Gibraltar Race where it got seventh. Now the company has a smaller version that carries on the bigger model’s mission but with less power. We speculated there would be a 300cc model, but Honda went smaller than that. The new model features a 149.3cc engine. Otherwise, the bike is just as aggressive and more or less as off-road-ready as its bigger brother.
The little single-cylinder engine makes about 14 hp and a little over 10 lb-ft of torque. That’s not a lot of power, but the bike only weighs about 293 pounds. With conventional forks up front and Showa gas-charged shock absorbers in the rear and a 14-inch wheel up front and a 13-inch wheel in the rear, the bike should be able to handle a rough trail or two. The bike gets disc brakes and ABS is available.
So far, Honda only announced the scooter in the Indonesian market, according to NDTV. However, you can bet it’ll make it to other Asian markets and many European ones. As far as the bike coming to the U.S. market, that has yet to be seen. I would love to see it come, but I kind of doubt it will.
