Honda's new 745cc scooter aims to blend the ease of use you get with an automatic scooter with the practicality and versatility of an adventure bike. A scooter and an adventure bike might seem like an odd pairing, but Honda have managed to make the X-ADV work.
The parallel twin engine is the same used in the firm's Integra scooter and NC series of bikes, so it comes with Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), adding a layer of refinement and excitement that other scooters lack.
Like most big scooters the biggest stumbling block for the X-ADV will be the price. It costs £9599 in the UK, which is similar to most of its big scooter rivals, but also puts it in direct competition with 'proper' adventure bikes such as the BMW F800GS.
