2022 Honda ADV150: YOUR DAILY FILL OF ADVENTURE.
Introducing the 2022 Honda Grom ABS…
The Honda ADV 150 is proof that scooters can be more than capable city commuters. Fully embracing Honda’s “City Adventure” concept, which has spawned rugged-yet-capable scooters, this lightweight, compact model pairs practical features like an automatic transmission, two-stage adjustable windscreen and under-seat storage with rugged styling that inspires fun backroads adventures. For model-year 2022, there’s also a new color option.
The 2022 Honda ADV150 continues to prove that the adventure category isn’t defined by engine displacement or seat height. It’s about the indomitable spirit, a sense of exploration, and a build quality that will stand the test of time. The ADV150 gets there with a rock-solid 149cc four-stroke OHC engine and rugged steel chassis. The long-travel suspension and spacious under-seat storage promise a comfortable ride for you and your gear. And features like the two-position windscreen, Honda SMART Key, and standard ABS make this one sophisticated scooter. It’s versatility, with a heavy dose of fun, and an opportunity to add some adventure to your every day.

2022 Honda Grom ABS Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
DESIGN / STYLING
Styling should not come at the expense of comfort or range, which is why Honda took all aspects into account when finalizing the ADV150’s design. The result is a machine that is rugged, comfortable and incredibly practical. Still very much intended for around-town commutes, the ADV150 features ample storage, great wind protection and an elevated rear seat that enables a passenger to take in the scenery. Additional considerations were made for range and ease of use, the ADV150 featuring a centerstand and side standanda 12-volt accessory adapter for keeping personal electronics charged. It also has a 2.1 gallon fuel tank which, when combined with the scooter’s impressive fuel economy, results in impressive range for day-to-day adventures.
The rugged design is intended to spark a rider’s adventurous spirit
A toolless, two-position windscreen provides protection from wind and weather in its highest setting or added breeze in its lowest setting. Total range is 71 mm.
A 27-liter under-seat luggage box offers storage for essential adventure gear.
A dash compartment provides convenient storage of small items, while an inner accessory socket allows charging of electronic devices.
The compact, individual turn signals and slim rear fender create a lightweight, dynamic image.
The muffler is compact and positioned high for tough, adventure-ready looks.
The engine, drivetrain and fuel tank are mounted low in the frame, for a low center of gravity. This adds to the confidence-inspiring handling, especially in parking lots or tight traffic conditions.
All-LED lighting to minimize size, weight and energy consumption, and to maximize mass-centralization and illumination.
The taillight is separate from rear turn signals, and incorporates an “X” design that expresses the crossover concept.
The LCD main meter’s design is compact, but ample information is available, thanks to the meter’s square shape and a separate screen. The main meter displays date, time, oil-change indicator, fuel meter, odometer, A and B trip meters, speedometer, instant fuel consumption, average fuel consumption, air temperature, battery voltage and fuel meter. A separate sub-meter displays turn signals, high beam, coolant temperature and fuel injection.
With Honda’s Smart Key system, the scooter’s main knob is automatically activated as the owner approaches, and the engine can be started without inserting the key. (An on/off switch prevents a third party from using the scooter even when the owner is in the vicinity.) The system incorporates an “answer-back” switch that flashes the turn signals to help the owner locate the scooter, as well as an anti-theft mechanism whereby the handlebar remains locked when an attempt is made to start the scooter by force. The fuel lid and seat are unlocked via a rocker switch adjacent to the main knob.
CHASSIS / SUSPENSION
Adventure is just around the corner, which is why the ADV150 was outfitted with features that will help riders venture off the beaten path. ADV-style suspension and tires are robust, while the scooter’s ground clearance lends itself to rough-road exploration. Commutes and city-street riding are also taken into account, the ADV150’s chassis emphasizing nimble handling and a low center of gravity.
The engine, drivetrain and fuel tank are mounted low in the frame, lowering the center of gravity. This adds to the confidence-inspiring handling, especially in parking lots or tight traffic conditions.
The lightweight, compact frame has optimized rigidity characteristics to manage rough backroads.
The wheels have narrow spokes (12 front, 10 rear), to transmit a consistent load from rim to axle. This provides the rider with accurate information about the road surface and helps him or her to make informed riding inputs.
The 31 mm telescopic Showa fork has a class-leading front-suspension travel of 5.12 inches.
The twin piggyback Showa shocks offer 4.72 inches of travel and consistent damping force. Their triple-rate springs deliver progressive loading for excellent road-holding performance in varying situations, including two-up riding and traveling through rough terrain.
A petal-style, 240 mm front brake rotor minimizes unsprung weight and sheds water and debris from the brake-pad surface, while a 130 mm drum rear brake aids in overall stopping performance. Front ABS is standard.
The model-specific wide, tubeless tires feature a block pattern that works well in conditions from urban roads to rugged bypasses.
For increased strength, the handlebar features a tapered design (28.6 mm at the clamp area), similar to those of larger adventure models like the Africa Twin.
ENGINE / DRIVETRAIN
The ADV150’s 149cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine features a smooth power delivery with a broad high-rev range, which helps it stand out in cities or on backroads. The fuel-efficient enhanced Smart Power design (eSP) features advanced technologies including an ACG starter. The air-intake/exhaust system is optimized, and ample torque in the low and middle rev ranges helps the rider to tackle varying terrain.
Compared to the city-focused PCX150, the ADV150’s intake system has a 21 mm longer air-cleaner duct and a 2 mm longer connecting tube, for improved low- and midrange torque.
A diagonally mounted muffler has an inner pipe structure and catalyzer location that are optimized to minimize emissions and deliver good performance in varying conditions.
The continuously variable Honda V-Matic automatic transmission provides a smooth power delivery and requires no shifting, enabling riders to concentrate on the ride.
Meets current EPA standards
Models sold in California meet current CARB standards and may differ slightly due to emissions equipment
Changing riding conditions? No worries—the ADV150 features an innovative two-position windscreen. Want more breeze? Just lower it. Want improved wind and weather protection? Up she goes, no tools required.
LOW CENTER OF GRAVITY
Because the engine, drivetrain and fuel tank are mounted low in the frame, the ADV150 has a low center of gravity. That helps inspire confidence, especially in parking lots or tight traffic conditions.
The ADV150’s long, plush seat is designed for comfort. The two-tone look also features two textures. Your passenger even gets an elevated section, so he or she can see the surroundings better. Plus, the ADV150’s bodywork narrows down where you sit, giving you more room.
Your ADV150 has tons of available storage. First, flip open the seat and there’s a weather-resistant 27-liter main compartment that locks securely. It’s big enough for a full-face helmet and lots more. Then there’s a convenient 2-liter compartment up front with a 12-volt charging port—perfect for your phone or other quick-access needs.
EASY TO PARK
Scooters can find parking way more easily than cars, but the ADV150 makes it even easier. You get the choice of both a sidestand and a centerstand. That makes it easy to park for a fast dash into a store (the sidestand) or when you need to park it upright in a tighter space (the centerstand). With a lot of other scooters, you only get one or the other.
Honda SMART KEY
Forget about fumbling for an old-school key—with Honda’s SMART Key, starting the ADV150 is as easy as pushing a button or two—no conventional key is needed. Best of all, you can just leave it in your pocket. Plus, the ADV150’s fuel-injected engine fires right up and runs smooth, even in colder weather.
RUGGED, MUSCULAR STYLE
If you thought scooters were all about European vacations, the new ADV150 is going to rock your world. With its tough, muscular looks, it’s built for the way we ride today. Plus, check out the all-LED lighting package, including the turn signals and instrumentation.
Like all Honda scooters, the ADV150 is incredibly fuel efficient—plus, its large 2.1-gallon tank means you can go even longer and ride even further between fill-ups.
RUGGED SUSPENSION, PREMIUM SHOCKS
The ADV150 features Showa® telescopic front suspension with the most travel in its class, a full 5.1 inches. In the rear, a pair of premium Showa shocks feature remote piggyback reservoirs and triple-rate springs that control 4.7 inches of travel.
PGM FUEL INJECTION
The ADV150 features liquid cooling and Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) for great performance in all traffic conditions and easy starting, even in cold weather. Plus the ADV150 offers impressive fuel efficiency.
ANTI-LOCK BRAKES (ABS)
Sometimes adventure means not knowing what’s around the next corner. Don’t worry; the ADV150 has your back. Every ADV150 features Honda’s Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) giving you the power to make confident stops, even in less-than-ideal conditions.
12-VOLT ACCESSORY ADAPTOR
Where would we be without our electronic devices? The ADV150’s integrated 12-volt adaptor makes it easy to keep your personal electronics charged up when you’re on the go. It’s located inside the two-liter storage compartment up front on the left side.
Great handling and rugged construction starts with a solid chassis design, and that’s where the ADV150 really shines. It uses a duplex-cradle steel-tube design rather than the more common “underbone” style. You may never see it, but you’ll feel the benefits every time you ride.
With the Honda V-Matic automatic transmission, just start the engine, twist the throttle and go. That means no shifting, ever—you concentrate on the road ahead and enjoy the ride! The V-Matic is a continuously variable design, so you’ll always have smooth power delivery.
