A week ago Honda Motorcycle Malaysia posted a launch teaser post for an incoming model on their Facebook page. This online launch event is set to take place tomorrow, on the 5th of February 2021 at 8 pm.
We speculated the model that’s due for launch tomorrow is the much anticipated Honda ADV 150. This is because the silhouette of the bike that’s featured on the launch poster looks a lot similar to the ADV 150. Apart from this, earlier rumours also suggested the model would be launched within February 2021 so think the model that will be launched tomorrow is the Honda ADV 150.
Previously we posted updates on the pre-booking availability and such. If you haven’t seen it, check it out here. One thing we weren’t sure of was the specification details because specifications of the ADV 150 is market-specific. Meaning, the specification of the bike depends on the country it’s being offered in.
However, the official Malaysian brochure for the Honda ADV 150 has just been leaked out online. Thanks to this, now we can lay out the specification details of the Honda ADV 150 that we have been missing out.
Note: Specifications mentioned here are based on the leaked brochure and iMotorbike does not guarantee the legitimacy of the leaked brochure.
2021 Honda ADV 150
Speaking of the bike, the Honda ADV 150 is a popular dual-sport motorcycle in many parts of the world. As mentioned earlier specifications vary with the market. In markets like Indonesia, the ADV 150 is offered in two variants; ABS (anti-lock braking system) and CBS (Combi Brake System) variants.
Judging from the leaked brochure the Honda ADV 150 model that we would be getting in Malaysia appears to be the top of the range Honda ADV 150 ABS variant that’s offered in Indonesia. When BSH brought in the Honda CBR250RR to Malaysia, we received the Indonesian equivalent of the high-spec Honda CBR250RR SP as the standard model. So, we are not surprised.
