FIRST LOOK: 2022 Honda ADV 350

Following the success of the Honda X-ADV 750 and ADV 150, the Japanese firm decided to expand the adventure scooter range with the 2022 ADV 350.

While waiting for the new ADV-ish scooter to make its way to Malaysia, let’s check out what the new motorcycle has to offer.

The ADV 350 makes 29.2hp and 31.5Nm thanks to the 330cc single-cylinder eSP engine and mated to a fully automatic CVT transmission.

It also features Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) that helps the rear wheel from breaking traction during acceleration.

Despite coming with a Showa 37mm inverted front fork, it is non-adjustable however the twin Showa piggyback offers spring-preload adjustment.

With an 11.7L fuel tank, Honda claimed the Italian-designed ADV 350 can take you up to 320 kilometres making it the best scooter for daily and touring purposes.

The ADV 350 also comes with a 15-inch front wheel and 14-inch at the rear combined with a dual-purpose tyre.

However, with just 5.7″ of ground clearance, we suggest that it can only tackle light off-road.

Other interesting features include:

  • adjustable windscreen
  • 48L under-seat storage capable of fitting two full-face helmet
  • digital LCD dash with smartphone connectivity
  • USB Type-C port in the glovebox
  • dual-channel ABS
