In addition, by designing the suspension exclusively, we have realized a comfortable ride in various situations from unpaved roads to highways. In addition, the equipment has been enhanced with the "Honda SMART Key system" that allows the engine to be started more conveniently and the "emergency stop signal" that promptly notifies the following vehicle of sudden braking by blinking the hazard lamp at high speed.

There are 3 colors available: Matte Meteorite Brown Metallic, which has a tough yet high-quality image, Matte Gun Powder Black Metallic, which is fearless and calm, and Gayet Red, which has a bright and passionate color tone.
