NEW DAY, NEW ADVENTURES.

Humans have always wondered what lies over the horizon. First, we walked. Then we had horses. And now we have the best exploration tool yet: the Honda Africa Twin. And to celebrate the 30th anniversary of our original Africa Twin, we introduce the Africa Twin Adventure Sports. Same great engine, but optimized for riders looking for more range and comfort, on and off the road. You get a bigger fuel tank, more suspension travel, a larger skid plate, wider foot pegs, a larger windscreen, and more. So, turn your next vacation into an adventure, with our incomparable Africa Twin.

PARALLEL-TWIN ENGINE LAYOUT

The Africa Twin’s parallel-twin engine layout makes the bike shorter front-to-back. That means the front wheel can tuck in closer to the engine, shortening wheelbase and making the bike more nimble off road and on pavement.

THROTTLE BY WIRE

Our throttle-by-wire system greatly expands the Africa Twin’s versatility. First, you get seven levels of Honda Selectable Torque Control. Second, you can choose from four power delivery modes: Tour, Urban, Gravel, and a fourth that’s user-programmable. First used on our RC213V-S, throttle-by-wire is an excellent example of how Honda’s technology works for you.

LONG-TRAVEL SUSPENSION

The Africa Twin doesn't just look like an adventure bike—it’s the real deal. Exhibit A: Check out its long-travel suspension. The fork features huge 45mm tubes and 9.1 inches of travel, while the single-shock rear Pro-Link® suspension is also fully adjustable, with 8.7 inches of travel and a convenient remote preload adjustment.

SIX-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION

The Africa Twin features a conventional six-speed manual gearbox with a handlebar-mounted clutch lever. It’s a proven, tough design that’s a little bit lighter, too.
