The Honda ADV 160 may also get the Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) feature. This feature is useful for preventing the rear tire from slipping, of course it is very suitable for adventure-character motorbikes such as the Honda ADV 160. Moreover, this feature has also been embedded in the Honda PCX 160.

Meanwhile, Honda has also registered a design patent for a motorcycle that is suspected to be the Honda ADV 250. The new Honda motorcycle patent is registered in the Official Gazette of Industrial Design No. 8/DI/2022 released by the Directorate General of Intellectual Property of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights. The motor scooter was registered by Honda Motor Co., LTD. with four Japanese designers.

However, if you enter Indonesia, it is likely that the Honda ADV will carry a 250 cc engine. You see, Honda Forza which is present in Indonesia also uses a 250 cc engine. Moreover, Government Regulation No. 73 of 2019 states that motorcycles with engines of more than 250 cc to 500 cc are subject to a sales tax on luxury goods (PPnBM) of 60%. If Honda brings ADV 350 with a 330 cc engine, it means that the price will be higher with the imposition of PPnBM.
