2022 Honda X-ADV gets two new colors. The 2022 PCX range has also been refreshed in Japan. The X-ADV could be running on our roads sometime in the future…
So, Honda Japan have showered some love on their X-ADV adventure-scooter & PCX maxi-scooters and have updated these to the latest 2022 versions. The changes brought to these scooters are purely visual while the mechanicals remain untouched.
2022 Honda X-ADV Adventure Scooter In Japan
Till now, we have covered the smaller brothers of the X-ADV scooter offerings from Honda – X-ADV 350 & X-ADV 150. However, the X-ADV adventure-scooter offered in Japan is the biggest of them all.
Launched in 2017, the Honda X-ADV in the Japanese market is powered by a massive 745 cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine putting out 58 PS at 6750 RPM and 69 Nm of torque at 4,750 RPM. The engine is connected to a Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) system and uses the braking system picked directly from their Africa Twin ADV!!
Major mechanical and visual changes were brought to the X-ADV back in 2020. This is why, for 2022, Honda only added two new colours – Grand Prix Red & Matte Ballistic Black Metallic. These two new colours have joined the existing colour offering of ‘Pearl Deep Mud Gray’.
The 2022 Honda X-ADV is priced at JPY 13,20,000 which equates to Rs. 7.64 Lakh in our currency.
Furthermore, Honda India could be planning to bring the smaller sibling of the X-ADV adventure-scooter to India. You can read more details on that here.
2022 Honda PCX 160 & PCX Maxi-scooters in Japan
The PCX range is the maxi-scooter offering from Honda. There are three variants of PCX maxi-scooters on offer in the Japanese market – PCX, PCX 160 & PCX e-HEV. But we are only talking about the ICE variants here.
Similar to their X-ADV, the PCX and PCX 160 max-scooters have only received new colours for 2022.
Honda Japan have introduced – Matte Galaxy Black Metallic & Foggy Blue Metallic – colours to both of the PCX petrol-powered max-scooters. Other than the colours, the scoots remain unchanged mechanically.
The PCX is powered by a 124 cc, single-cylinder engine producing 12.5 HP and 12 Nm of torque which is connected to an automatic transmission. The PCX 160 is powered by a 156 cc, liquid-cooled motor churning out 15.8 HP and 15 Nm of torque.
The PCX maxi-scooter is asking an equivalent price of Rs. 2.07 Lakh while the PCX 160 is tagged at roughly around Rs. 2.35 Lakh in Japan. The PCX has also been showcased in India by Honda but there is no concrete evidence if and when it will come to our shores.
Recently, India has also received its own true maxi-scooter in the form of Keeway Vieste 300. You can read all about it here.
