No word if this will make it to the USA but it looks interesting.

It has made it to the US. I saw one last week at Aurora Honda. Nice bike, but I wanted a 300 cc version or a Honda Forza.

Honda have now brought out a 350cc version of the current Forza 300 I've been riding since Fall 2018.

We don't even have a 300 cc Forza in the US currently. The US is the 3rd world of scooting thanks to American Honda and the market.

My problem with the Forza was the lack of rear suspension travel and the seat hump was in the wrong spot. Hope the 350 comes here. Wish the ADV150 had a disk in the rear.

Sat on one at my Honda dealer last week when I brought in my Gold Wing for service.  Felt pretty good. More leg room than others I have sat on.   Easy to get up on the center stand. To bad they only have one color choice Flat Black.

Wish it came with the Africa Twin type red, white and blue.

I wish honda would bring a larger displacement Scooter to the US.  The 2004 Silverwing is going strong but would be nice to have a good Honda option for newer.  I might have to go to 3 wheels before Honda Wakes Up.

The only large displacement scoots from Honda are the 750s The ADV which, really isn't a scooter and the Integra which only bows in the right direction. The 350 Forza may materialize but all 3 fall way short of what the SWing is/was.

If you do, the CanAm Ryker is a fine trike.

RevZilla did a video on the ADV 150 that's kind'a interesting.

Nice video. Want to sit on one but my local dealer sells them as soon as they hit the floor.

I'd like to help but the only ones they have over here are the 750's.

I can't write that! It's just being mean.   :whistle:

There's a long thread on this scooter on ADV.  People who have them are giving them good reviews.  I could see getting one of these or something similar in a few years when my Like 150i needs replacing.  I have no interest in a 750cc version.  I have owned a 500+ pound adventure bike before and am not interested in another.  I sold my 400 pound KLR because it was too heavy.  This 150 weighs 285 pounds wet which is a good weight if you actually want to ride off road.

Finally sat on one yesterday. Seat hump too close for me. Very nice, requires fob/smart key for everything. Seat is truly about 31.5. Otherwise pretty nice but the ill fitting seat is a no for me.
