Honda has launched the new 2021 X-ADV scooter in the Philippine market. The premium adventure scooter has a price of 803,000 PHP that can be converted into £12.1 lakh according to current exchange rates.
As part of the annual update, the two-wheeler has received a number of new updates, including an optimized exterior design and a host of new functions. On the outside, the scooters now have a more aggressive design with refreshed full-LED headlights. The scooter also has new LED daytime running lights with automatic daylight detection.
The LED rear light has an emergency stop signal on the back. The scooter also gets a new five-stage adjustable windshield, an aluminum bash plate and hand guards, all of which are part of the standard equipment.

Honda has also changed the ergonomics of the scooter with a reshaped seat that now has a narrower inner seam. This allows riders of all sizes to sit comfortably with both feet on the ground.
Mechanically, the changes remain minor. The scooter has the same liquid-cooled 745 cc parallel twin motor, which pumps out 57 hp and 69 Nm peak torque. It is equipped with a six-speed dual-clutch transmission or DCT, as can also be found on the Honda Africa Twin ADV.

To complement its adventure qualities, spoked wheels and dual sport tires are included. It’s easily one of the funniest scooters ever introduced. While it turns out to be extremely tempting, it may not hit the Indian market anytime soon.
