Honda ADV

Great news to wake up to, though it is unlike to make it to the Malaysian market, but we could just get lucky.

Word on the internet grapevine is saying that the all-new Honda ADV350 is set to be launched in Thailand in March of 2022.

The Honda ADV 350 was first shown at the EICMA show in 2021, but it went quiet since then, until now.

You can read our full report of the Honda ADV 350 here.

The all-new Honda ADV 350 is based on the Honda Forza 350 with the same eSP + engine, but with a twist.

Handling is managed by a 37mm Showa upside-down front fork with twin Showa rear shocks, while the ADV 350 also gets better ground clearance than the Forza 350.

There are also other amenities that add comfort and safety such as hand guards, a height-adjustable windshield, LED lights, a full LCD display screen.

There’s not all, there’s also a USB Type C charging connector, HSTC system and a RoadSync smartphone connectivity that displays all key information from your smart phone onto the LCD screen.

As for power, the ADV 350 is powered by Honda’s single-cylinder 330cc liquid cooled engine with fuel-injection. It also comes with Honda’s Smart Power + with Honda’s Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) and outputs 28.9 horsepower.

In typical Honda fashion, RideApart reports that the ADV 350 comes with three colours for starts – Spangle Silver Metallic, Mat Carbonic Gray Metallic, and Mat Carnelian Red Metallic finishes.

There is no news on whether it will make it to Malaysia as yet, but it could just be the case since this is the perfect opportunity for Boon Siew Honda to plug the gap in between the smallish ADV 150 and the pricey ADV 750.

Ever since the Honda ADV 150 was officially unveiled at the Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show 2019 (GIIAS) in Indonesia last July, people around Asia have been asking on the arrival of this particular machine in their respective countries. For Malaysia, it’ll be sometime in the first quarter of 2021. (more…)

  • The Honda ADV 150 was unveiled at the 2019 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS).

  • Its design follows the 745cc X-ADV but with a number of differences.

  • The ADV 150 is road-biased.

The Honda ADV 150 was unveiled at the 2019 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS).

Taking inspiration from its larger, 745cc brethren, the ADV 150 features similar lines albeit in a smaller package. The large front fairing contains the dual headlamps like the bigger bike but gives the bike an unmistakable identity.

The windshield is non-adjustable. The LCD screen underneath also looks similar to the bigger bike’s. We do hope that the ADV 150 has a larger storage space than the 745. There’s LED lighting all-around.

Powering the bike is a 149.3cc, SOHC, single-cylinder engine. It produces 14.7 hp at 8,500 RPM and 13.8 Nm 6,500 RPM. The figures appear suspiciously identical to those produced by the PCX150’s powerplant. Anyway, power is sent to the rear wheel via a v-matic transmission instead of the Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) found in the 745cc X-ADV.

The ADV 150 is more road-biased. As such it uses normal telescopic forks and a pair of Showa gas shocks in the rear. Another indication of its road vocation are the 14-inch front and 13-inch rear cast alloy wheels.

Will it be launched in Malaysia? It would give the Yamaha NVX 155 should it be introduced here.
