While it’s an effective blend of a scooter and bike’s characteristics, the ADV scooter is a world apart in its notion and functionality. The idea behind the X-ADV is simple as it eliminates the restrictions you will have on a scooter and add “ADV” attributes so you can enjoy the ride in all sorts of surfaces. More information on the Adventure scooter will be revealed on the 30th of August.
The 34 second long clip begins with “Your horizons are going to change forever” tagline and that announces something interesting. The ADV is believed to be an efficient city rider with comfortable ride quality and it adapts components from the Honda NC750X and Integra.

The styling elements are indeed taken from the concept besides twin front brakes with standard ABS, wired rims, swing arm and upside-down forks will ensure safety and comfy riding. The maxi scooter is expected to be positioned in a high price range and feet-forward riding position does put the question over its light off-roading characteristics.
