$12500 in Bangkok. I saw one on the street yesterday. Looks awesome, a little too high for my liking though. Look like a very nice all around scoot.

I've seen one in Aberdeen, the guy who rides it used to have a Vultus, he has seriously odd tastes in bikes :lol:

I have two comments on the X-ADV.
1. Why couldn't they have put a 17" rear tire on like they did to the front? I think it would have looked more balanced that way.
2. A DCT transmission plus a chain drive equate to a motorcycle to me, not a scooter. Since it does have paddle shifters there isn't much more than the plastics that make it a scooter.

The only thing that makes it a scooter is the blurb from the marketing department.
ALL the NC engined machines are motorcycles.

I thought it was just me who thought it was a motorcycle and not a scooter.

Personally I think it is ugly - especially with a smaller wheel at the back and that ridiculous space above it!

Yes, the NC700/750D is absolutely NOT a scooter.

...So when you see a NC750D beside a X-ADV you are suppose to choose between a "scooter" with gears or a motorcycle with the same gears and the same engine, but the scooter has a smaller rear wheel and a cramped riding position? Hmmm...hard choice.

18 ?? Many pre-registered? That must say something about them. Yes, some of them have only a mile or two on them, but there are others with hundreds of miles on them. Dealer demos?? Disillusioned customers who bought them and regretted it?
Looks like the price ranges from £8400 to £9600. That is still a lot of money for a scooter, big engine or not. Looking at it from a practical viewpoint, which would be better for commuting, a X-ADV or a Silverwing? Assuming that the "ADV" means it can be used for off roading, would you want to take it off-road and not be able to stand up when crossing a stream? I am just trying to figure out the practicality of it.

It''l likely be dealers trying to shift ex-demonstrators which they will probably have been forced to take into stock by Honda UK and pre-registered models and adverts for new ones with price cuts...

There are accessory footpegs available for it so you can stand up when off road, however they are expensive.

Good grief, don't even try! :lol: There are hellishly more impractical bikes on the market that sell well.

We have a (rather high mileage) GSXR1000 in the garage. It doesn't reach the sweet spot for power until it is 20 mph over the National Speed Limit ... in FIRST!!!! o_O What's the point? Well the point is it's a Gixer Thou, and that's what Him indoors wanted at the time. 8)

People will buy them because they like them, and because it's a Honda ... or they won't. Practicality is way down the list.
