First shown at the EICMA show last year as the “City Adventure”, rumours are being reported that Honda will be producing the concept bike as the X-ADV. The X-ADV, heavily camouflaged, has been spotted running around the streets of an un-named Italian city.

Based on the 745 cc parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine with eight-valves and a single overhead-cam used in Honda’s current model NC750 series and Integra scooter, the X-ADV will have 54 hp and 68 Nm torque fed into a DCT gearbox.

The X-ADV appears to feature step-through styling, and dual-purpose patterned tyres that make it somewhat resemble the CRF1000L Africa Twin. This imagery is helped by the the up-swept exhaust, tall windscreen and hand-guards. Spoked wheels and long-travel suspension add to the illusion.

This dual-purpose styled adventure super-scooter is likely to be a Europe-only model, where there is a demand for quirky designs that feed into day-dreams of crossing the Tunisian desert on two wheels. Nothing official from Honda on the existence of the X-ADV, but it might make it into the 2016 EICMA show.
