Honda confirms production of the new ‘X-ADV’

From Honda's website - ooohh?

New breed of machine combines adventure appeal with wide-ranging performance and practicality
Public reveal set for EICMA show, Milan, in November 2016.

Honda Motor Europe is pleased to confirm the production of a new breed of motorcycle for the 2017 sales season: the ‘X-ADV’.

Based on the City Adventure concept machine displayed at EICMA show in Milan in 2015, the X-ADV combines the spirit of adventure with all-round performance, practicality and comfort for urban commuting and weekend escapes.

Features include an upright riding position for high visibility and long travel suspension to handle the roughest road surfaces. At the same time, the X-ADV offers the practicality of a 5 stage adjustable windscreen and storage space for an off-road style helmet.
The X-ADV continues Honda’s long tradition of finding new ways to create products that enhance and enrich its customers’ lifestyles. In keeping with its innovative concept, the X-ADV will come with Honda’s unique Dual Clutch Transmission - and the spirit of adventure - as standard fitment.

The X-ADV will be shown to the public for the first time at the EICMA show in Milan, from 8th to 13th November 2016. Full technical specifications will also be available at this time.

Bit pointless but at least it's an interesting looking scooter

Red M/T, the shinyness didn't last long...
