Honda X-ADV (2017 - 2021)

Usually, adventure motorcycles and scooters have nothing in common. However, with the Honda X-ADV, you can now have the best of both worlds and enjoy your ride no matter the terrain or weather conditions.

The Honda X-ADV is a hybrid between a modern maxi-scooter and a versatile adventure bike. It is equipped with the same parallel twin engine that you will find in other popular Honda bikes such as the NC750X and Forza 750. The engine is smooth and reliable.

The bike is super-agile and easy to handle, yet comfortable and powerful enough for long-distance travels. Thanks to its higher seat position, you will have enough control over the bike. Under the seat, there is a storage where you can easily fit your motorcycle helmet. Additionally, the Honda X-ADV also comes with an adjustable screen and ABS.

A2 Licence Compliance

The Honda X-ADV is a 745cc A2-friendly bike. It has a power output of 40 kW (53 bhp), which exceeds the 35 kW (47 bhp) limit needed for an A2 licence. The bike has to be restricted by at least 12.5% to become A2 licence compliant.

You will need a restrictor to ride the Honda X-ADV on an A2 motorbike licence. See the restrictor kits section to check out what restrictors are available for the Honda X-ADV.
