The launch strategy, which is rarely used by AHM, in recent years has been closed about new products. But this time the company is quite open in informing the new motorcycle although it has not specifically described what model will be introduced later.

Honda ADV 160 Coming Soon?

The opportunity for the Honda ADV to pack a 160 cc engine similar to the Vario and PCX is not surprising news. Previously, AHM has also provided a related grid at the launch of the Honda Vario and PCX.

Marketing Director of PT AHM, Thomas Wijaya said that his party always wanted to realize the wishes and needs of customers, including the birth of the Honda ADV 160. 

"It is possible that we will go to another type. But back again, according to what consumers need and what we can learn from the research we have done. We will study the ADV (160 cc engine) first, its needs," explained Thomas .

Indeed, the answer is fairly normative, not wrong because each manufacturer has their own strategy to compete in the market, including information on the launch of a new motorcycle.

To note, the Honda ADV 150 is now 4 years old. At that time, the 2019 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) arena was the venue for the launch. Well, generally vehicle manufacturers will regenerate or update every 4 years to stimulate market interest and balance consumer needs.

With a teaser that does lead to an adventurous automatic motorbike silhouette, the ADV 160 name has a greater chance of being born. If true, he will pack the exact same engine as the Vario and PCX. This means that the all new ADV will be loaded with a 4-Valve, eSP+ engine with PGM-FI (Programmed Fuel Injection) fuel. Meanwhile, the diameter x step is 60 mm x 55.5 mm.

Referring to the performance of the PCX 160, the maximum power can explode up to 15.8 horsepower at 8,500 rpm. Then the maximum torque of 14.7 Nm at 6500 rpm. This scooter uses a centrifugal dry clutch and CVT type distribution.

As for the completeness of features, the ADV 160 is said to be packing a traction control device or HSTC (Honda Selectable Torque Control). It is also reported that there will be changes to the meter panel, slight revisions to the appearance, and the use of new wheels that are likely to use the same stripe size as the PCX 160.
