Honda X-ADV 150 is the newest unveiling from the manufacturer, showcased at the GIIAS 2019. It is basically a 150cc scooter with rugged tires to give an off-roading feel.
At the ongoing GIIAS (Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show) 2019, Honda 2-wheelers has unveiled the smaller X-ADV 150, for the Indonesian market. The prices are yet to be revealed.
In the popular X-ADV series, the newest offering comes with the smallest engine but looks very similar to the bigger X-ADV 750. These scooters are basically adventure scooters, which can also take you through some trails on the weekend.
X-ADV 150 gets a water-cooled 149.3cc engine that produces 14.5 BHP at 8500 RPM and 13.2 Nm of peak torque at 6500 RPM. The engine comes mated to a CVT transmission with a different type of engine tuning.
The X-ADV scooter gets dual-purpose tires with alloys, suited for off-roading. It is a maxi-scooter with a large front apron, a dedicated footrest and an unusually small tail portion.
At the front, you get a tall windscreen and split LED headlamps. It gets an upswept exhaust and a single-step up seat as well. The scooter looks very rugged but a bit bulky as well. For convenience, the list also includes a negative LCD instrument console.
For suspension, you get telescopic forks at the front and a twin gas-charged Showa shocks suspension at the back. For braking, you get disc brakes at both the ends with a single-channel ABS offered as standard.
The scooter is 1950mm long, 763mm wide and 1153mm tall. At the front, you get 14-inch tires and 13-inch tires at the back. The bigger X-ADV 750 is even bigger than the 150cc version over here.
Talking about the Indian market, Honda 2Wheelers has indicated that it might launch a 150cc scooter in India in a year or two. However, we expect this model to not make it to our market because of its high pricing.
