    HONDA ADV350 (2022 - on) Review

     13  Highlights
    New 330cc scooter from Honda Goes and handles like a motorcycle Generously equipped At a glance
    Power: 29 bhp Seat height:      Medium (31.3 in / 795 mm) Weight: Medium (410 lbs / 186 kg) Overall rating

    Rating:  4 out of 5 (4/5)
     
    Honda struck gold when they released the X-ADV in 2017. Half scooter, half adventure bike, it may not have captured the imagination of riders in the UK, but for the rest of the world, especially Europe, where scooter culture a much bigger part of everyday life, they’ve flown out of showrooms.
    Not only did they sell nearly 44,000 of them up to the end of 2021, but it was also Honda’s best-selling bike of that year, too. So, it makes sense that they’d produce a smaller, more affordable version: the ADV350.  
    The new twist-and-go makes perfect sense for commuters who want a bit more poke and flexibility than a 125. Not only will the ADV350 ping to motorway speeds as quick as you’d naturally accelerate on a motorcycle and do over 95mph, it has genuine big-bike handling, braking power and road presence.
     

     
    Whether or not an adventure-styled mid-sized scooter that can handle a spot of light off-road floats your boat, one thing’s for sure: the ADV350 is an impressive machine in its own right.
    It feels every inch a well sorted – albeit sometimes firm, motorcycle with strong performance and solid, reassuring handling, but it also enjoys all the benefits of being an easy to live with twist-and-go-too.
    It’s smooth, simple to ride, comfortable and with superb fuel economy and lots of storage, it’s practical, too. Best of all it’s cheaper than its premium brand rivals, despite its superb build quality and generous equipment level.  
     
        Ride quality & brakes 4 out of 5 (4/5)   What really separates the ADV350 from your average scooter is the way it’s screwed together and how it holds the road. This is no flimsy, built down to a price runabout.   It’s solid, well finished (it comes in red, silver and black) and doesn’t crash, bang and fold itself in half when you show it a small bump. Granted the ride can be firm over rough roads – the payoff for being able to handle the dirt, but thanks to its lightweight tubular steel frame and proper forks, the Honda is stable, confident in corners and its Metzelers have lots of wet and dry grip.     Honda’s Rome-based R&D department have been unapologetically bold with the adventure styling, too. It’s a physically large and substantial machine, but at the same time light, agile and manageable to ride.   Its demeanor also serves to keep you safe - it looks so much like motorcycle at a glance, you don’t get bullied by traffic, like you do on a conventional scooter. It’s comfortable, too, but with such tall bodywork in front of the seat it’s not as easy to swing your leg over as a regular 'step through'.     The action of the manually adjustable screen is simple, too. In its high position (it has a 133mm range) it’s great for keeping rain off around town and in the lower, more raked positions there’s minimal buffeting for motorway riding. It’s actually quieter the lion’s share of 'proper' adventure bikes.     Engine 5 out of 5 (5/5)   Powered by the same 29bhp, 330cc single cylinder engine you’ll find in Honda’s maxi scooter-style Forza 350 and pizza delivery-shaped SH350i, the ADV350 is smooth, quiet and friendly.   Spritely performance has more in common with a big cube maxi-scooter than an oversized 125 and it’s smoother at low speed than its bigger 750cc parallel twin cylinder sister, simply because it has a proper ‘elastic band’ scooter CVT gearbox, rather than the X-ADV’s jerky DCT.   Honda claims 83mpg, which adds up to a 213 range from its 11.7-litre fuel tank.       Reliability & build quality 5 out of 5 (5/5)   Although it’s a new model, you can use Honda’s X-ADV and 300/350cc scooter range as a gauge to any reliability issues… and there aren’t any. Fit and finish are excellent, too.       Value vs rivals 4 out of 5 (4/5)   It isn’t cheap, but when you look at the level of spec and performance you get for the money, the asking price becomes more agreeable.     The ADV350 doesn’t have any direct rivals, but it’s cheaper than the Suzuki Burgman 400, Yamaha’s XMAX 300 and even the Kymco XCITING S 400.   You can find cheaper mid-size scoots from the less premium manufacturers, but they won’t have the Honda’s build quality, level of equipment or resale value.     Equipment 4 out of 5 (4/5)   Standard goodies include 37mm Showa upside down forks and twin piggyback shocks with dual rate springs, a Nissin front brake caliper, a four-way adjustable screen, hand guards, wide adventure style handlebars, LED lights, keyless ignition, two USB chargers, ABS and two-stage (including 'off') torque control.   It has small scooter-sized (15in front, 14in rear) aluminium cross-spoke wheels, but they’re shod with top notch Metzeler Karoo Street dual purpose rubber…just in case you need to ride across a field on your way to work.       48 litres of underseat storage (with a removable separator plate) is enough for a full-size helmet and a smaller scooter-style lid. It also has a 2.5 litre glove box.   Multi-function LCD dash, controlled by left switchgear has smart phone voice control for calls, navigation, music and texts via Honda’s RoadSync app.   Accessories include a 50-litre top box that works with the keyless system, a rear rack, heated grips, a U lock and bike cover       Model history & versions Model history 2022: Honda ADV350 introduced Other version
    There are no other versions of the Honda ADV350.

    The internal code names reveal that these will be 750cc–1,000cc street models.
     
    Given the gap in its range and the reveal of new documents, it’s likely Yamaha will be rolling out a new R9 model very soon (MT-09 SP shown).Yamaha It looks like Yamaha isn’t done with its new launches for 2022 as the firm has filed European type-approval paperwork for two as yet unreleased machines under the code names “RN82″ and “RN83.” The documents that have surfaced so far don’t tell us much more than that, but those code names alone give a surprising level of insight into the machines, including the ballpark of their capacity and the fact that they’re street oriented—sportbikes or naked roadsters—rather than cruisers or adventure bikes.
    As many firms do, Yamaha uses code names designed to reflect a bike’s position in its range. In this case, the initial “R” means it’s a street model—a cruiser would have a “V” and an off-road or adventure bike would have a “D” in that position. The second letter, “N,” tells us that both new bikes have a capacity of between 750cc and 1,000cc. If it had been an “M” the bikes would have been between 600cc and 750cc, for example, while a “P” would mean a capacity of more than 1,000cc.
     

    There are clear signs the MT-09’s 889cc triple will form the basis for two new sport models.Yamaha
    The very first bike to use the RN code—RN01—was the original 1998 YZF-R1, and the most recent new models to fit the same profile are the 2022 MT-10 (RN78) and the recently revamped XSR900 (RN80). Inevitably there are gaps in the sequence, representing projects that haven’t reached fruition, but the new approval applications show that RN82 and RN83 are both due to be launched soon.
    To deduce further what these machines might be, we can start by looking at what engines Yamaha currently has in the “N” capacity bracket. Presuming these bikes use existing motors, there are only two options: the 889cc ‘”CP3″ triple from the MT-09, Tracer 9, and XSR900, or the 998cc “CP4″ crossplane-crank four-cylinder from the YZF-R1 and MT-10. It’s the former that seems a more likely candidate for the new models, since there are already clear indications that Yamaha has plans for two new machines based on the MT-09′s engine.
     

    A next-generation, redesigned Niken with the updated 889cc CP3 engine will likely be one of those models (current model shown).Yamaha
    One model that’s virtually guaranteed to appear this year is the next-generation Niken three-wheeler. The current Niken (which was project number RN58) is the last remaining Yamaha triple to use the original 847cc version of the CP3 engine. The new, 889cc version is a substantial redesign, and in Europe it’s the only CP3 to meet the latest Euro 5 emissions rules. The current Niken remains on sale in Europe only thanks to a two-year grace period following the introduction of Euro 5, designed to allow manufacturers time to sell off existing stocks and develop new, emissions-compliant models. That period ends on December 31, 2022, so Yamaha needs to launch a new Niken by then or withdraw the model for 2023. Given the firm’s commitment to the three-wheeled cause, a replacement is virtually guaranteed.
     

    Trademarks for the R9 name have already been filed around the world, and with the CP3 engine and Deltabox frame in use on the XSR900 (shown), a faired R9 seems like a given.Yamaha
    Presuming an updated Niken is one of the new machines, what’s the other? One possibility, given the simultaneous appearance of the RN82 and RN83 in type-approval paperwork, is that it’s a second version of the Niken. Yamaha has previously considered and put development effort into an unfaired three-wheeler based on the Niken chassis, with a more MT-09-ish style. The original naked Niken idea didn’t reach the market, but it’s clearly a direction that Yamaha has in mind.
    However, there are also other candidates. Notably, last year Yamaha filed multiple trademarks around the world for the “R9″ name, indicating that a sportbike based on the CP3 triple is under development. It makes a lot of sense: the YZF-R6 that’s currently Yamaha’s second-string sport model below the YZF-R1 lives on now as little more than a track-only machine, long since lost to road-going riders in Europe due to emissions rules. A YZF-R9 based on the MT-09 would have similar power and weight as an R6, with a healthy dose of additional torque. Since there are already multiple models using the same engine, and the latest MT-09, Tracer 9, and XSR900 now have a sport-style Deltabox frame, a faired “R9″ model makes a vast amount of sense, just like the R1 above it and the MT-07-based R7 that’s the next step down the chain.
     
    The other gap in the lineup would be a retro-styled 1000. Perhaps we’ll see a naked XSR1000 based on the MT-10 at some point?Yamaha
    While the YZF-R9 is an obvious omission in Yamaha’s current lineup, another obvious gap in the range is a large retro model. The MT range runs all the way from 125cc to 1,000cc, and the R range does the same—apart from the missing R9. However, while there’s an XSR125, XSR700, and XSR900, there’s no MT-10-based XSR1000. Given the current popularity of retro-inspired naked machines, it might make a lot of sense.
    But with both of the new bikes already submitted for type approval, we’re unlikely to be left waiting long to find out more about the RN82 and RN83.
