Honda Called to Prepare ADV 160, Use PCX 160 engine

The ADV 150 is the 'adventure' version of the PCX 150 which is now almost two years old since its launch. Although still relatively new, this motorbike is said to be included in the plan to revise the engine to 160 cc like the PCX 160.

PCX 160 uses the eSP+ KF47E 1-cylinder SOHC 157 cc engine with four valves, this is two more valves than the PCX 150 engine. This additional valve improves the combustion process so that it is more efficient.

In addition to the engine, the ADV 160 is also expected to get a key feature on the PCX 160, namely the Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC). This feature is useful for preventing the rear tire from slipping when the gas pedal is twisted.

However, it is believed that the ADV 150 to ADV 160 will not be updated this year. The new model ADV 160 is expected to arrive in 2022 with a refreshed exterior design.


So far ADV 160 and also Vario 160 is still speculation. There has been no official statement from Honda regarding the design change stages for the two following the PCX 160.

Honda has launched the ADV 150 in July 2019, while the PCX 160 last February. The launch of the Vario 160 is believed to happen this year. if in order it is not impossible ADV 160 will slide after.
