Honda X-ADV accessorised by Kappa

Kappa’s versatile new set of model-specific accessories to kit out the versatile Honda X-ADV scooter includes top cases, a windscreen, hand protectors, radiator shield and model-specific supports and tools.

The factory scooter frame allows the installation of both rear and side luggage racks, which makes it ideal for touring with a passenger, and Kappa offers a choice in terms of design, capacity and style. For side luggage there is the “adventurous” ‘GARDA’ models, in 33 or 46 litre capacities, the K40N for the road, or the urban K22N. Any ‘Garda’ case can be mounted to the rear, and Kappa says that the K466 is recommended for a “street look”.
The side and rear luggage plates for the X-ADV enable the whole Kappa range of cases to be mounted, including the “squared” KVENTURE in aluminium. There are two top case installation kits, and if the X-ADV already has a luggage rack, there is the KR1156 or KZ1156 kit. Also available are two kits to attach the side cases (KL1158 and KL1156).
The KD1156ST transparent windshield provides increased wind protection against the wind (65 x 40 cm, 13 cm higher than stock), and the KHP1144 hand protectors in ABS provide increased protection; the KRM02 spray guard couples to the rear wheel using the RM1156 kit.
The KN1156 engine guard is made of 25 mm tubing. The PR1156 plate protects the radiator, a stainless steel grill painted black, and the KMG1156 mudguard in black ABS is “more enveloping than the previous one and designed to protect the internal part of the wheel - its elongated upper shape protects the end of the drive chain”.
Other model-specific accessories include a tool box and mounting kit and an anodised aluminium and stainless steel support to increase the surface area of the X-ADV factory standard side stand.
