Exteriors: 2021 Honda X-ADV: At a glance
The 2021 Honda X-ADV has an aggressive look, featuring a stepped-up seat, LED DRLs with an automatic daylight sensing facility, and an aluminum bash plate.
New handguards, a 5-step adjustable windscreen, and golden-colored front forks are also available.
It packs a digital instrument console, twin-LED headlights, LED taillamp with an Emergency Stop Signal, and rides on wire-spoke wheels wrapped in dual-sport tires.
Fact: Power and performance
The 2021 Honda X-ADV draws power from a Euro 5-compliant 745cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine that generates a maximum power of 57.8hp and a peak torque of 69Nm. The mill is linked to a 6-speed DCT gearbox akin to the Honda Africa Twin.
Safety: Safety and suspension setup
To ensure the safety of the rider, the 2021 Honda X-ADV is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and the rear wheels.
The suspension duties on the two-wheeler are taken care of by 41mm cartridge-type USD forks on the front side and a shock absorber with adjustable preload on the rear end. The latter also operates the aluminum swingarm.
Fact: What about the pricing?
In the Philippines, the 2021 Honda X-ADV carries a price-tag of PHP 8,03,000 (approximately Rs. 12.1 lakh). However, it is unlikely to make its way to India as the company will not be able to price it competitively here.
