Honda will showcase its family of off-road ready products at the 2019 Overland Expo West in Flagstaff, Arizona, displaying two adventure-ready light trucks plus an array of powersports and power equipment products. Taking center stage are the all-new 2019 Honda Passport five-passenger SUV and the 2019 Honda Ridgeline pickup, both specially equipped by Jsport (Jsport Performance Accessories) with off-road performance and adventure enhancements and accessories. In addition, Honda Powersports will have a fully accessorized version of the all-new Honda Talon 1000 X sport side-by-side on display, as well as three camp-ready dual-sport motorcycles, including the Africa Twin Adventure Sports, CRF250L Rally and CRF450L. Honda Power Equipment completes the adventure lifestyle display with its variety of Super Quiet Series generators, ranging from the compact EU1000i, EU2200i, EU2200i Companion and the RV-ready EU3000i Handi to the affordable Economy Series EG2800 model. And, for the ambitious outdoorsman who still wants the luxuries of the occasional shower, Honda will have the small, lightweight but efficient WX10T water pump on display, too.
Honda Passport Adventure Lifestyle Project
The Honda Passport Adventure Lifestyle Project starts with the newest addition to Honda’s SUV family, the off-road ready Honda Passport with available all-wheel drive. Working closely with Jsport, this Passport has been specially equipped for life beyond the pavement. The ride height has been increased using a Jsport lift kit, adding 1.5 inches in front and 0.75 inches of ride height in the rear. A new front skid plate has been added for additional durability, along with 18-inch Nitto RidgeGrappler tires mounted on exclusive Jsport KMC XD 18-inch wheels that take full advantage of the Passport’s available i-VTM4® torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system. A Jsport Plateau modular roof rack has been added along with a Roofnest Sandpiper rooftop tent, for better enjoyment of the great outdoors. Jsport side steps make accessing the roof rack easier, and the Jsport external swinging spare tire holder and revised front bumper give Passport the ability to carry gear an oversized spare, as well as push away brush on the trail. Capping it off are front and rear external lighting solutions from Baja Designs.
Honda Ridgeline Adventure Lifestyle Project
The Honda Ridgeline Adventure Lifestyle Project incorporates multiple upgrades and modifications to turn the 2019 Honda Ridgeline Black Edition into the ultimate Honda adventure truck. Jsport Performance Accessories modifications, including additional skid plates, off-road wheels and tires, and leveling kit are aimed at enhancing the pickup’s off-road and overlanding capability without compromising on-road comfort. Jsport sidesteps make it easier to access the versatile new Plateau roof rack system, while the Mesa bed rack maximizes cargo flexibility. Mounted in the Plateau roof rack is a lightweight, quiet and powerful Honda EU2200i generator for powering almost any electrical accessories that overland excursions require. All the Jsport mods to Ridgeline are available now for purchase.
