Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.
Concept was revealed at the EICMA show last month.
A French publication, MotoBlouz, reports that an adventure scooter based on the Honda City Adventure Concept is headed for production and that it would be introduced in the market in 2017. The report says that that the production version would not be a direct derivative of the concept, and that it would be more of a mellowed-down version.
The Honda City Adventure Concept was unveiled at EICMA 2015 in Milan last month. It was presented as a “unique interpretation of the idea of adventure on two wheels”. The company announced that the concept is a precursor to the design and development of upcoming scooters and adventure motorcycles from the brand, indicating that the model was more than just a design study.
The technical specifications and the powertrain used on the City Adventure Concept were not revealed during its unveil. What could be seen on the model were a long-travel Up Side Down fork, spoke-wheels, off-road tyres, dual disc brake upfront, knuckle protectors, a swingarm-based rear suspension likely with a monoshock and an upswept exhaust.
