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.
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.
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.
