Designed around the concept, “GO EVERYWHERE with EXCITEMENT,” the X-ADV motorcycle inspires a spirit of adventure in the user: be it for a practical ride to the city on weekdays or for more adventurous rides on weekends, leaving daily life behind. We emphasised this feel of adventure by designing a soulful body with an straightforward silhouette. The body is composed, with a sense of unity, of sharp- edged lines from front to rear, producing a powerful, stylish appearance that blends high taste and elegance. (Description / Maurizio Carbonara) Launch Year / 2017

In the current motorcycle industry, the off-roaders which are called ‘Adventure’ motorcycles are the most popular. This motorcycle is strong both in off-road dri- ving and in very practical use in city traf c, which no other motorcycle has achiev- ed. Its design, mechanical and futuristic, also delivers on originality. (Selection Co- mmittee / SAITO Kazuhiko)
