Honda ADV 350 in the driving report Best from the construction kit
After the great success of the X-ADV 750, Honda is now adding a smaller brother to its crossover scooter. For him, the 50 percent rule applies: half the cubic capacity, half the performance, half the price. And yet the Honda ADV 350 is no half-measure. Quite the opposite.
Why is Honda now building the ADV 350? After all, Honda is the market leader in scooters in Italy, already building two other 350cc scooters at its Atessa plant there, the SH and the luxurious Forza 350. He also donated the tubular steel frame with the "optimized spar thickness". In addition, the new ADV inherited the 330 cc single-cylinder engine from the two brothers. The proven engine is completely manufactured by Honda in Thailand and then shipped to Italy. The concept and design were created in Rome, Honda’s European design center. This is where the successful CRF 1000 L Africa Twin and X-ADV 750 models were conceived and designed.
