Honda has released a new concept called the City Adventure. From what we can deduce from the pics this scooter is a line extension of the European market-only Honda Integra 750, a maxi-scooter based on the NX750 motorcycle platform that has footboards and a semi-automatic gearbox, but rolls on 17 inch front and 15″ wheels and uses full motorcycle suspension.
On this concept, wire wheels with twin discs up front, knobbly ties and beefy bodyside appearance suggest rugged durability for people bombing through the concrete canyons of Europe.
And that is that for Honda’s pre-show show (no big new releases coming).

these tyres 170/60 – 15 are they in market???
The production version is wearing 160/60 R15 and there is different options available, at least 10 different models.
Yes, but these tyres (170/60 R15) … where are they?

[…] You saw it first in our EICMA coverage: An oddball step-through built on Honda’s Integra 750 scooter platform. Now, it seems that concept, known at the time as the “New City Adventure,” is headed for production. […]
[…] as to the scooter itself: We showed you photos of the machine at EICMA, when it was allegedly just a concept. The idea sounds great (joining the two worlds of adventure […]
Another answer to a question nobody asked.
Wrong I asked for it, I know I`m weird.
Anyone else thinking this Adventure bike craze has just jumped the shark?
I agree with Paolo. As much as I like the way they work on the street I’m getting “adventure’d” out.
Gee, a big scooter with knobby tires – that’s revolutionary !!! (sarcasm font)
No revolution here, was just hoping for one that is less budget oriented and with a bit more power than a BW`s 125 although this would be a wee bit too expensive for me.
I must be the only one who like this.
I’d bite, at 250-300 cc, and corresponding weight/size reduction.
I can’t see it being that small with the twin dics and USD forks. i wouldn’t be surprised if they used the NC700 motor.
Surely is , might be using the Integra engine or wouldn`t be such a surprise if it was an Africa Twin mill with the size of that swing arm and other components. Would be easier for you to see if you’re at Eicma this year.
Yes, I wish I was there. We do have three people on the ground though, but there’s nowt like a week in Milan to appreciate the finer things in life.
Lucky them even if it must be tiring .I should try to experience this in the future. Seem like it`s using the Integra/NC engine with DCT.
