Unique to the Asian market, there are all types of bizarre bikes. A few of which can make you envious that these machines weren’t offered stateside, whereas others can have you elevating eyebrows. The bike now we have right here right this moment in all probability occupies the middleground, however it may’t be denied that it clearly borrowed a number of styling cues from a well-liked commuter scooter from Honda.
I am speaking in regards to the Aveta VADV150 Hybrid, and judging from its identify alone, I am certain you’ve got already guessed what bike it is impersonating – no less than, from a styling viewpoint. Every part in regards to the VADV150 screams Honda ADV 150, which is a disgrace, actually, as beneath the adventurous scooter’s copycat exterior lies some completely spectacular know-how.
From a efficiency standpoint, it is not actually that particular, because it’s powered by a four-valve, SOHC, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine. It has a most output of 16 ponies and a max torque score of 9.8 pound-feet. Now, all of this may increasingly appear fairly customary on the subject of the 150cc scooter class, and certainly, it’s.
Nevertheless, the Aveta VADV150 impresses with its know-how. For instance, it will get an adaptive entrance lighting system (AFS) which routinely adjusts the LED headlights’ output relying in your velocity. Moreover, the scooter will get an enormous seven-inch, full-color TFT show. There’s even a keyless ignition and key fob which you should use to entry the under-seat compartment. On high of all that, Aveta has thrown in a pair of cameras to the VADV150. This digital video recording (DVR) system not solely data your rides and retains observe of your adventures, however is also a helpful instrument within the occasion of an accident.
Having mentioned all that, on paper, no less than, the Aveta VADV150’s options put different 150cc class scooters to disgrace. If solely they’d been extra authentic with its design. However, it seems that this mannequin will not transcend the confines of the Malaysian market. Within the Southeast Asian nation, it is supplied in three colorways consisting of Yellow Topaz, Blue Sapphire, and Purple Ruby. It retails for RM 13,980, which interprets to about $3,127 USD.
