Hero MotoCorp, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and maybe Moto Morini and Ultraviolette have plans to introduce a number of state-of-the-art motorcycles and scooters from the EICMA to the Indian market, offering riders options and excitement.
Is Honda going to release the ADV 160 to take on the Hero Xoom 160?
We hope Honda releases the 2024 ADV 160 in India as well because Hero has shown off the Xoom 160 ADV-type maxi bike. The muscular front fascia of the ADV 160 features vertically mounted LED DRLs and slim headlights. In addition to serving a practical purpose the huge clear windscreen mounted on the front apron of the bike also adds to its aggressive appearance.
A raised single-piece seat, an upswept exhaust, a lengthy tail section, and elegant rear-view mirrors are some of the other important elements. There are no design modifications for the 2024 Honda ADV 160. Certain components have not changed, such as the sporty X-shaped taillamp and the rectangular digital instrument console.
A variety of data is shown on this LCD instrument panel, including the air temperature, speedometer, fuel usage in real-time, and the time and date. For simple viewing, a separate indication panel has been installed beneath the digital console. Scooter's overall profile commands a lot of road presence because to its immenseness.
This scooter is less practical because it doesn't have a step-through. It does, however, contain the scooter's sizable 8.1L fuel tank, freeing up a sizable 27L of under-seat storage. The Honda Smart Key system, the front inner box with a 2L capacity, the smartphone charging port, and the emergency stop signal are among the other features that have been maintained.
The new Pearl Bosphorus Blue has been released by the firm with the 2024 Honda AD 160. Matte Dahlia Red Metallic, Pearl Smoky Gray, and Matte Gunpowder Black Metallic are the additional colors available with MY2024. On December 14, 2023, the new 2024 model will go on sale in Japan. It will cost JPY 473,000 (tax included), or approximately Rs. 2.6 lakh.
2024 Honda ADV 160 specs
Driving The Honda ADV 160 will be powered by a liquid-cooled 4V 156cc engine. The output values are approximately 15 Nm and 16 PS. The Honda ADV 160 is equipped with enhanced smart power (eSP) technology, which guarantees peak performance in a variety of conditions. The eSP system is made up of a number of parts, including programmed fuel injection and an ACG starter.
The 2024 Honda ADV 160 will have an idling stop mechanism, which increases fuel efficiency. The scooter will include a gas-charged twin rear suspension and a double cradle frame with telescopic front forks. Fitting the scooter's ADV profile, block pattern tires will be fitted. Single-channel ABS disc brakes will be installed on both wheels.
The timing is right for Honda to introduce the ADV 160 in India, as Hero is introducing the Xoom 160, India's second sporty maxi-scooter. The Yamaha Aerox 155, which presently occupies a sizable niche, will face competition from both. Hero will, however, have a far superior VFM proposition in light of its pricing initiatives.
