A new teaser video from Honda popped up on the Internet, revealing more of the much-awaited ADV scooter that is supposed to allow riders do both economic, efficient commuting and hit some dirt over the weekend.

Yes, the uncanny crossover idea is spreading from the automotive market to the two-wheeled world, as the Honda ADV looks to be the love fruit of a maxi-scooter and a light adventure bike.

In fact, the upcoming ADV scooter borrows much of its components from the Honda NC750X and the Integra, including its frame, the 750cc parallel-twin, and the DCT automatic transmission.

Along with that, the ADV is fitted with USD forks, wired wheels, a longer swingarm and twin front brakes. ABS will be fitted as standard in Europe according to the legislation, while other markets will probably offer it as an option. Extra “adventure” bits include a belly plate, had guards and an adjustable windshield.

The Honda ADV scooter has been teased before in another clip, showing it riding around the busy streets of a city in most part. Quick-shifting video sequences weren’t revealing much of its design, but the new video below solves that as well as focusing on the machine’s off-road abilities.

From here you can see the upcoming final product looks almost exactly as the concept showcased at EICMA last year, with sharp angles and a frowny mean little face. We also hope the video editors haven’t tampered with the exhaust sound because we really like that low growl heard in this clip.

The opening sequence of the clip shows some interesting data in the top left corner. One line reads “Honda 2017”, suggesting the ADV is part of the 2017 lineup. And there are also some coordinates, which I ran through the internet and points to a dusty road on the coast of the island of Sardinia, Italy, the place where the bike got tested out.

The video ends with the scooter being packed in a shipping container while the outro says “The Story Continues 15/09/16,” suggesting the ADV scooter is sent somewhere off the island. Our guess is that it’s heading to EICMA 2016 in Italy, where it will make its official debut.
