Triple MotoGP champion Marc Marquez has taken to the snow again and this time, not on an RC213V-S race bike, but this time on a scooter!
Marc rode the specially equipped Honda X-ADV adventure through the snow at Hahnenkamm mountain in Kitzbuehel, Austria.
The adventure scooter was unveiled last year at the Milan motorcycle show and is now confirmed for European markets.
However, the X-ADV won’t be coming to Australia. At least for now.
Honda Motorcycles Australia spokesperson Kristy Ganter says “I can advise that currently there are no plans to release this model in Australia”.
That doesn’t mean it won’t ever come here. They may test the market first.
The X-ADV is claimed to have a tough chassis, long-travel suspension, four-piston radial-mount brakes and a 745cc twin-cylinder engine driving through Dual Clutch Transmission.
It is also equipped with a five-level adjustable screen, underseat storage space for an off-road style helmet, hand guards, rally-style instrument display, centre stand, and the Honda Smart Key system.
Of course, this one had snow tyres!
It follows Marc Marquez’s recent ride on the RC213V-S.
What’s next for the triple champ; a ski jump on a Honda Lead?
