A few years ago, Honda unleashed what was then considered an abomination in motorcycles: putting an adventure bike into a scooter’s body and the X-ADV was born. Since then, the X-ADV has been a consistent best-seller in Europe, even out-selling some of the more established motorcycles the Europeans have to offer.
For the 2023 model year (MY), Honda has made a couple of updates to the scooter that gave birth to the “adventure scooter” segment.
New for 2023
While the engine of the X-ADV still packs the same 58 PS and 69 Nm of torque, Honda has made a few updates for the upcoming 2023 MY X-ADV. These updates include a new throttle-by-wire management system, 4 default riding modes, and 3-level Honda Selectable Torque Control.
The X-ADV’s 22L seat storage compartment includes a USB charger while a glovebox adds further convenience. Twin LED headlights feature Daytime Running Lights and a 5-inch TFT display allows smartphone connectivity via the Honda Smartphone Voice Control System.
For the 2023 model year, a new Shasta White paint option is available. In addition, a full range of genuine Honda Accessories is available for the ’23 MY X-ADV.
The current X-ADV is available at Honda Big Bike dealerships with an SRP of PHP 839,000. The 2023 MY X-ADV PH pricing and availability are yet to be announced by Honda PH.
