Choice of Motor Make Touring, New Honda ADV 160 or CB150X?

 The Honda manufacturer has a motorcycle that can be relied on for touring, there is the New ADV 160 that just launched and the CB150X. The two have different characters. The ADV 160 is a scooter type and the CB150X is a sports bike that is designed for adventure needs. But each of them remains agile when taken far away. Which of the two is more fun to tour with.

Choice of Motor Make Touring, New Honda ADV 160 or CB150X?

Performance

From the spec sheet, the ADV 160 carries a 156.9cc engine (rounded up 160cc), 4 valves, liquid cooling, and already has eSP+ injection technology (enhanced Smart Power plus). The amount of power and torque produces a maximum power of up to 11.8 kW or 15.8 Hp at 8,500 rpm and a peak torque of 14.7 Nm at 6,500 rpm. Engine compression is at 12:1 with bore x stroke at 60 x 55.5 mm. The new engine concoction is claimed to be able to provide good acceleration.

While the CB150X power source of the 150cc DOHC 4-valve PGM-FI single-cylinder unit is liquid-cooled. Its equivalent is a 6-speed transmission. From there, 11.5 KW (15.6 Hp) of power can be distributed, which peaks at the level of 9,000 rpm. The torque is similar to its engine-sharing sibling, the CB150R at 13.8 Nm at 7,000rpm. Its performance excels at low to medium engine revs, so the ability to climb it is better, in accordance with the character of riders who like touring. 

Efficiency

Based on the results of internal tests with the WMTC-EURO 3 method, the fuel consumption of the ADV 160 shows a figure of 45 km / liter (ISS on feature), so it is able to cover a distance of up to 364 km in one full refueling. The fuel tank capacity of Honda's new adventure scooter is 12 liters.

His brother whose manual clutch was recorded at 38 km/liter. These results are obtained based on the results of the ECE R40 test. This result is also an internal test by AHM. The capacity of the tank is 12 liters.

The fuel consumption above will certainly be different when both are used daily later. The condition of the roads and the weight carried also make its fuel consumption different from the manufacturer's claims.

Feature

The New Honda ADV 160 gets improvements in terms of features to improve driving safety. It is now equipped with traction control or HSTC (Honda Selectable Torque Control) specifically for the highest variant. Furthermore, the application of adjustable windscreens to improve aerodynamics and maximize wind exposure. In addition to its function to withstand wind gusts from the front, this component also has a role in boosting appearance. Even the ADV 160 can be adjusted to two high positions. Without having to bother disassembling the tide.


The new meter panel looks like honda ADV350, charging me model USB Port type A, ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) for the highest variant, Full LED lighting (front, rear, turnkey), DRL, hazard lights, ESS (Emergency Stop Signal), handlebar handlebars, wavy disk, 30 liter trunk, Side Stand Switch, Keyless with security alarm.

To support long trips, the CB150X is equipped with a Tapered Handlebar. High Windscreen for comfort and protection from wind exposure while driving, Full Digital Panelmeter which displays vehicle information with a sportier and more modern appearance, LED Headlight, Inverted Front Suspension, Adventure Style Undercowl to provide protection for the engine while driving, and LED Taillight.

Accommodation

It's less afdal if the motorbike for touring doesn't talk about accommodation. In this case the new scooter Honda has a trunk of 30 liters. The helmet can definitely enter. Even some types of full face. From there, there is a leftover space that can store some important equipment for long trips, such as raincoats and other small objects. Then there is another drawer in the dashboard area. This part is quite deep, just right to store the device and can be closed, so it is aesthetically neater.

None of the luggage space on the CB150X. Don't expect to be able to keep a helmet, raincoat, or anything that can be left on the motorcycle. Again, they weren't made like accommodating scooters. But some aftermarket parts can treat, a kind of iron rack with a box or bag tied to the tank. 

Practicality

Within the city, the footrest and weight of the vehicle become important elements. So is dexterity, whether maneuvering or when you have to make a U-turn. In total dimensions, the ADV 160 has a length of 1,950 mm, a width of 763 mm, and a height of 1,196 mm. Ground Clereance 165 mm and seating height 780 mm. While the CB150X (LxWxH) is 2,031 x 796 x 1,309 mm, with the lowest distance to the ground of 181 mm and a seat height of 817 mm. But about the weight, of course, the scooter is more compact, 133 kg. While the CB150X reaches 139 kg.

The new ADV 160, which is a scooter type, has a wide footrest. It can provide a sense of comfort and is easier to invite to wade through the dense and dynamic city paths. While the CB150X even though it has a sport model footrest, it is also relatively comfortable. Because the triangle of its ergonomics does not make the rider get tired quickly.

Next, the matter of sitting position. This depends on taste indeed. The scooter offers wide seat contours for the rider. This type of sport adventure has multi-tiered model seats. Make the driver made lower so that the back waist gets restraint. The design certainly gives the advantage of keeping the body's position firm. So it doesn't get sore quickly.

Legs

The New ADV 160 is embedded with ordinary telescopic suspension at the front and twin subtank rear suspension to provide optimal comfort and stability when cornering, bumpy and bumpy roads. Coupled with large semi-dual purpose tires 110/80 – 14 (front) and 130/70 – 13 (rear) it gives a dashing impression and looks different.

The CB150X has long legs. The basics can be said to be similar to the Honda CB150R or Honda CBR150R, where the front suspension is upside down from Showa and the rear is monoshock with unitrack. Although he has a similar appearance, he gets an upgrade. Still Showa SFF-BP (Separate Function Fork-Big Piston) but has a longer playing distance of 30 mm. The stroke is also 10 mm longer, the total is 130 mm. To compensate for the already long front suspension, the CB150X's monosok is also longer. Approximately 324 mm with a stroke of 60 mm.

While the wheels use IRC Road Winner tires intended for on-road lanes. The size of the front tires is 100/80 – 17 52P (Tubeless) and rear 130/70 – 17 62P (Tubeless).

Design

The New Honda ADV 160 has a tough and sturdy urban explorer design. Although at first glance it is similar to the old model, it turns out that the face has changes. More precisely, the front body cover is slightly enlarged so that the fierce impression of this bike is stronger. Then in the left and right body wings also look different. If the previous model used a slightly fat design, precisely in the ADV160 it appears slimmer so that the visuals are simpler.

The rear side body is now similar to the Honda ADV 350 that has already launched in Thailand. This body revision also makes the appearance of the ADV160 look bigger. But at the stern, it still applies an LED lamp model with an X silhouette inside the lamp housing. To support the adventure display, he is equipped with a windscreen whose function is to dispel the wind optimally.

The sport adventure is designed with a burly design and a more prominent moge feel. The aura is similar to that of the CB500X moge. The fat part in front appears on the tank area with the shroud fused all the way to the muzzle. This part is also what makes it similar to the moge. This is one of the attractions of the CB150X.

It's not enough to make the front like the CB500X, the posture matter must also be adjusted. Made high with a longer front shock, longer travel. The type is exactly the same as that used by Streetfire, namely the Showa SFF-BP 37 mm upside-down. Don't forget the gold kelir must be made a marker.

The combination of the fat tank and the tall posture, makes the CB150X a little intimidating. Especially for riders whose height is under 170cm. Standing aside or looking closely, it's really like a moge!

Conclusion

Although the price is quite far apart, both of them are indeed designed for riders who want a scrap metal horse. When it comes to specification data, it is clear that the New ADV 160 is superior. But in terms of performance, of course, the CB150X is reliable because it adopts a manual clutch.

The Honda CB150X is intended for potential consumers who are looking for a long-distance old motorcycle. Without forgetting its ability to be used as an everyday vehicle and offers stuttering and steady performance when used for touring.

Both of them are quite capable of being brought touring, and they also have their own advantages. In terms of comfort, realistically certainly the Honda CB150X is very supportive. But when it comes to engine technology and its taste features the New ADV 160 is also reliable. Now it depends on your choice. You can adjust to the budget or want to be different on the road.

Discuss the Design of the Honda ADV 160, This is the Difference with the Old Model

 PT Astra Honda Motor officially launched the ADV 160 last June. This adventurous-style scooter gets a model update compared to the ADV 150. Although not so obvious, the difference between the two models can actually be seen from the design of the body lines. When looking at the body cover, all those installed are new components except for the headlamp, stoplamp, and turn signal.

Test ride Honda ADV 160

Changes in the body and frame also made the footrest area change, now the size has become wider and lying down so that it can be more comfortable. Likewise with the rear braces, although the design is similar, it turns out that the components are new to the new frame on the motor. As is known, now the ADV 160 uses the exact same model as the Honda PCX 160.

This change makes a difference to the position of the engine mounting, where previously it was at the bottom it was now moved to the top following the new engine.

As for the gas tank, from the beginning of 8 liters, it turned out that there was an increase of 0.1 liters so that it became 8.1 liters.

The change in the new frame design of the ADV 160 also made its weight drop by 760 grams from the ADV 150. For the steering handlebars, the change is that the height of the raiser is made shorter according to its now lower riding position. As for the windshield, it is now made higher and there is an additional air circulation hole. This Widshield also still has a high-low setting that can be set manually.

It Turns Out That This Is The Reason You Should Change The Oil Regularly

 As one way to keep the vehicle primed is to carry out periodic maintenance while changing the engine oil. The reason is that the lubricant in the engine must be replaced periodically in order to optimize engine performance. In addition, also pay attention to the quality of the lubricant that will be used for our vehicles, because usually engine oils are equipped with a variety of siblings.




One of the most important are additives. Have the aim of improving the quality of base oil or providing new properties of lubricant products. Currently a number of engine lubricants have a variety of additives that function importantly to components in the combustion chamber of the vehicle. Well in addition to this, there are a number of other functions of the oil, which are the reasons for it should be periodically replaced. Here's the breakdown.

1. Lubricants

The main function of the oil is to provide lubrication to every component of the engine that requires it. The existence of this oil is in charge of preventing friction between parts such as pistons and cylinder walls. Imagine metal parts moving and rubbing against each other tightly. Without lubricant, damage will occur quickly. Even so, owners must be observant in choosing quality products with specifications according to vehicle needs.

2. Prevent gas leakage in the combustion chamber

In addition to lubrication, engine oil also functions to prevent gas leaks in the combustion chamber. Basically, oil has the ability to lubricate every component in the engine. For example, when lubricating between the cylinder wall and the piston, one of the tasks of engine oil here is to be a 'sealer' between the two so that there is no gas leakage in the upper and lower chambers of the piston.

3. Cooling the engine

Hot temperatures in the engine are common when the components in the engine are working. But with the engine oil there in charge of cooling, the engine temperature will still be ideal. However, do not expect this condition to be felt when you are late or even forget to make an oil change. For your information, in certain cases engine oil can also evaporate with use. So, it is quite possible that overheating occurs when you are negligent in this matter.

"Because of such a task, the engine oil has a service life or service life that ranges from 6 months or a few kilometers, whichever is achieved first. These recommendations are usually listed by vehicle manufacturers in the manual book," said Brahma Putra Mahayana, Technical Specialist of PT Pertamina Lubricants (PTPL).

4. Contaminant control

Although it is in charge of protecting, friction between engine components is actually unavoidable. But this engine oil functions to control contaminants, let's call them metals from friction between spare parts. The oil will later bring the debris or dirt to the filter.

5. Prevent rust

As is known, each component of the machine is made of metal material. Then it is very natural that rust will lurk. And, the presence of oil also aims to prevent rust from affecting those engine parts. But just like other points, consumers must pay close attention to the condition and volume of their vehicle engine oil.

Regardless of its function, consumers are required to read the user manual so as not to be mistaken when buying vehicle engine oil. In addition, make sure to also choose quality lubricants such as PT Pertamina Lubricants alert lubricant products.

"Pertamina's lubricant products are equipped with Nano Guard Technology formulations. It is the synthetic lubricant technology for the latest gasoline engines and carefully designed to meet the top performance requirements which has proven to be effective in protecting the engine and cleaning it thoroughly to the narrowest gap," said Brahma.

Understand the Condition of the Fuse So As Not to Cause Fire

 There are several factors that cause a car fire to occur. One of them is that the condition of the fuse that is not good until it melts can be one of the causes.



For this reason, it is very important to check the condition of the fuse before it breaks into a bigger problem. The Auto2000 team gave some tips to prevent vehicle fuses from melting along with the steps.

Poor Fuse Quality

Basically, the fuse is made of a specially designed metal plate with a flat shape and is cut off if passed by an electric current that exceeds its capacity. On the outside of the fuse, there is a plastic insulator of various colors as a protector as well as a marker of the size of the fuse. Meanwhile, the electrical components that are at work will produce heat and fuses of poor quality are generally problematic with the standard size of the metal plate of the electric circuit breaker. As a result, the insulator plastic is not able to retain heat so that the fuse melts.

Fuse Does Not Match Size

Often during emergencies and rushes or no backup, motorists replace the broken 5A fuse with a 10A fuse. In fact, the break of the fuse indicates a problem in the vehicle's electrical system. Plus, the higher the electric current, the higher the heat temperature generated. When the electric current passing through the fuse exceeds the provisions, the fuse does not break because it has been replaced larger. The increased temperature will make the fuse house melt and ignite a fire.

Load Increase

When modifying a vehicle, it is usually followed by the need for a new electric current or electrical modification. The problem is that the fuse lanes are not made separate and hitchhiked to the car's built-in fuse. When you want to increase the load on an electrical circuit, you should replace the cable with a fuse with a larger size and as needed.

Make sure the existing cable system is well made by professional technicians and uses quality materials so that it is not easy to trigger a short circuit. The overhaul of the car's electricity will be related to safety factors and the risk of warranty cannot be claimed if there is a problem.

Therefore, always make sure that additional accessories related to electricity are official accessories, one of which is Auto2000 and the installation can consult with the Auto2000 service advisor.

Installation Does Not Fit

The fuse mount design made in such a way is intended so that it can support the fuse firmly and safely. When carrying out the installation of the fuse independently on the holder or its terminals always make sure that it is absolutely precise and should not be loose. If the longar fuse is feared, it will cause an unstable electric current, giving rise to sparks that make the fuse hot, melt, and even burn.

When experiencing headlights that are often off-alive and smell sangit from the fuse terminal immediately visit the official workshop of one of the Auto2000. Don't delay replacing the melted fuse for too long and always make sure to also use the same size and original Toyota parts. Check the cable line on the melted fuse for possible problems such as a faulty cable connection.

Share Experience! These are the Tips for Touring in the Himalayas

 Mentioning the Himalayas continues to bring out memories of offroad, coral, rocky, desert and snowy tracks. Reminiscent of steep climbs and steep descents. Thin oxygen levels to low temperatures. Even so, it all became a combination of pleasant trips under the watchful eyes of the majestic broad-shouldered mountains.



For Indonesians, touring in the Himalayas is a refreshing activity but with a high level of concern. The problems and difficulties left in the dust every kilometer make every rider always remember it.

Destinations such as Leh, Ladakh, Zanskar Valley, Khardung La Pass, Nubra Valley, Wari La Pass, Chang La Pass, Pangong Tso, Tso Moriri, Taglang La Pass are very popular among adventurers. In addition to presenting beautiful scenery, those locations also offer some real sensations to test for adrenaline and endorphins.

Although the trip is fine, it should be borne in mind that driving in the Himalayas is not as simple as we see. It even has a high level of risk. But when done right, touring there can be a soul-clearing exercise. Based on the experience team at moto Himalaya 2022 activities, here are some of the best tips on how to ride in the Himalayas.

1. Plan a Trip

Planning a must when driving in the Himalayas. You need to draw up a travel concept and inventory that must be prepared and carried. While still in Indonesia, it's a good idea to find information about the areas you want to cross. Also note that the distance in the mountains can be quite misleading due to the winding roads. 250 km in the mountains is very different from 250 km in the plains. So, schedule the trip appropriately.

2. Passport and International Driver's License

As an Indonesian citizen, Passport, International Driver's License and International Visa are the main things that every rider should have before touring abroad. Passports have a minimum time limit of 6 months before the expiration date expires. The driving license must also be in a valid status.

3. Travel Insurance

This is also a mandatory thing. Make sure you have travel insurance. In addition, it would be wiser to have life insurance in case of an accident on the road. Insurance also at least covers the vehicle used. For motorbike insurance please contact the bike rental there.

4. Health Advice

Expeditions of this kind demand heavy physical exertion. The body must be in a state of physical fitness. If you have conditions such as asthma, high blood pressure, respiratory problems or heart problems, consult a doctor. Because you will spend most of the time at an altitude of about 3,500 to 5,300 meters above sea level). Make sure you have vaccinated such as influenza, chickenpox, measles, tetanus, and booster doses.

5. Currency Exchange

For initial supplies, exchange Rupiah (IDR) to US Dollars. Because there are no money changers in Indonesia who prepare the Rupee currency. Adjust the nominal to the needs while there. Having cash is highly recommended, because in a fairly remote mountainous region do not expect to find an ATM or a card swipe terminal.

Then keep the money in two or three different locations such as a few pockets, suitcases, or tote bags. You never know when you're going to need it. Anticipate expenses ahead of time and plan a budget according to the margin for unexpected expenses as well.
