Video: Marquez rides scooter on ice and mud

Not too long ago, three time MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez took his RC213V MotoGP Honda race machine off-roading on snow and mud with specially fitted tyres. That made for an awesome video which you can watch below, but it didn’t end with just that.

There’s a new video out and this time Marquez goes out on the new Honda X-ADV scooter. He rides the scooter on the snow of the Hahnenkamm mountain in Kitzhuehel, Austria.

It may seem odd to take a scooter off-roading, but the Honda X-ADV was specially designed for just that. The X-ADV is the perfect cross between the comfort and convenience of a scooter, and the spirit and riding performance of an adventure motorcycle. It achieves awesome off-roading capabilities by utilising a tough chassis, long travel suspension, four-piston radial-mount brakes and a torque-laden 745cc twin-cylinder engine driving power through a welt multiplate hydraulic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT).

The X-ADV also comes equipped with a 5-level adjustable screen, 21-litre underseat storage space big enough for an off-road helmet, Africa Twin hand guards, rally-style instrument display, centre stand, and the Honda Smart Key system.

The Honda X-ADV is also perfectly suited for everyday riding with selectable riding modes for maximum power or fuel efficiency, five-way adjustable screen, 17-inch front and 15-inch rear wheels and topped off with radial-mount four-piston callipers with ABS for maximum braking power.

Whether or not the Honda X-ADV is the perfect off-road scooter remains to be seen, but for now you can watch Marquez ride the X-ADV the way it is supposed to be ridden in the video below:
