A new breed

This motorcycle is not just for looks, it’s built with true off-road appeal and creates a whole new – and unconventional – category.

Built tough

A totally different motorcycle.

The X-ADV is built around a strong, completely new, tubular-steel chassis for firm and confident handling on different road surfaces. It’s also been created to provide a roomy 21-litres of handy, under-seat storage space too.

Long travel

The 41mm upside-down fork offers spring preload and rebound damping adjustment along with 153mm of travel, while the preload-adjustable Pro-Link rear shock offers 150mm. All this, matched with a ground clearance of 162mm, make it ideal for more than just a casual off-road excursion.

Stopping power

Braking on the X-ADV with ABS inspires confidence on less than perfect roads or in wet conditions. It delivers strong, precise and stable stopping performance through dual-discs with radial-mounted, 4-piston front brake calipers. Rear disc brake is a 2-piston caliper type.

Pro-Link rear suspension ­­– operating a sturdy swingarm – is featured for high levels of rider comfort, together with durability, over the rough stuff.

Front forks are fully adjustable to give you a smoother ride over all kinds of terrain.

Take your turn

With the rake and trail set at 27° and 104mm respectively, it feels naturally balanced with exceptional straight-line stability. The X-ADV is designed with a 39˚steering angle and a turning circle of just 2.8 metres, making it really easy to handle in a tight spot.

A change for the better

The X-ADV with a Dual Clutch Transmission.

Two clutches are independently controlled by their own electro-hydraulic circuit, so when a gear is selected it switches through one clutch to the other. It’s quick and seamless, eliminating shift-shock, as you change up or down through the gears. Select your mode, and let it take you along for the ride.

Power to hand

An engine that really wants to go.

The upswept exhaust emits a strong pulsing sound; it’s slim and has good ground clearance tucked in close to the bodywork.

The X-ADV’s 745cc, liquid-cooled, SOHC 8-valve parallel twin-cylinder engine puts out strong low-to-mid-range torque of 68Nm @ 4750rpm. This long-stroke motor delivers a rush of road-ripping acceleration from very low rpm; quite capable of leaving most other motorcycles standing at a traffic light.

Refined performance

Twin balancers on the crank shaft counteract vibration when the engine runs at higher revs, yet still allows a distinctive ‘throb’ and deep exhaust note delivered by the 270° firing order. It’s a unique and satisfying sound.

Extra economy

A single 36mm throttle body and PGM-FI feeds the exact fuel/air ratio to make the X-ADV EURO4 compliant. With fuel consumption that provides approximately 300km range, there's a lot of riding to do on a 13.1-litre fuel tank.

Plenty of torque to pull away from a traffic light combines well with smooth power and performance out on the open road. This is much more of a motorcycle than you can imagine, and when you ride it you’ll know, so why not arrange a test ride and find out for yourself.
