Honda’s definitive full-size adventure machine gets a comprehensive update for 2018, with Throttle By Wire, 3 riding modes, expanded Honda Selectable Torque Control parameters, more responsive power delivery and engaging engine sound. It’s also 2kg lighter and features several detail improvements to enhance the riding and owning experience.
The “go anywhere” approach starts with the engine, which has to perform in off-road situations as well as on-road long-range touring, and all points in between. To achieve maximum versatility the Africa Twin draws engineering inspiration from Honda's CRF250R/450R competition machines, and uses the same materials as the CBR1000RR Fireblade. A match made in heaven.
Look the part
Following its design theme of “unlimited adventure”, the Africa Twin is styled with minimum bodywork in a tough, lightweight form that offers both weather protection for the rider and a slim, agile feel. Dual LED headlights maintain the original’s signature presence and the seat height adjusts 20mm to either 870mm or 850mm. A large 18.8-litre fuel tank – coupled with the engine’s fuel efficiency – provides a range of up to 248 miles.
