Team HRC riders Joan Barreda, Helder Rodriguez, Paulo Goncalves, Jeremias Israel and Laia Sanz were all on hand during the reveal in Italy. Barreda commented, “After all the hard work, and the huge progress we’ve been making with the Dakar program; it’s great to see that we are inspiring Honda’s product plans in the adventure sector. We’re excited that soon more Honda customers will be able to enjoy True Adventure riding.”
Honda has been noticeably absent from the growing Adventure segment in the United States, with its long-lived XR650L still serving as the dual-sport pinnacle of the line-up. Styling-wise, the True Adventure appears to have rides like the GS, Tiger and KLR in its sights.
Honda provides absolutely no technical details on its True Adventure, no plans for release or hypothetical price points. Pictures are worth a thousand words though, and there’s plenty of those.
