This is Africa Twin Adventure Sports concept bike that was recently introduced by Japanese company and that is more off-road version of the model that Honda introduced the EICMA last year. Although we thought that Honda CRF1000L (Africa Twin) is the new adventure Honda motorcycle , it seems the we were wrong.
Things get less weird at market for adventure motorcycles. Although it seems that more manufacturers produce motorcycles for that purpose, they ultimately still return to R or Adventure.
The best example is R1200GS and R1200GS models of BMW. Standard motorcycles now have wheels that are great for the street but not very useful for off-road. Other examples are models of Suzuki, 650 and 1000 XT V Adventure V-Strom, Aprilia with Caponord Rally in 1200 and, more recently, the model Multistrada 1200 Enduro of Ducati.
The basic model of Africa Twin is wonderful and we have not yet met anyone who denied it. When we heard that a new Honda Africa Twin Adventure Sports concept, expectations were high, and the presentation of the new concept showed a model that is very similar to “ordinary”.
The new machine really looks great and Termignoni exhaust gives a special beauty to the side of the motorcycle. But the rest looks really similar to the basic model. Different seat, luggage space and a color that is very similar to the old Africa Twin. Anyway Honda apparently actively working on returning to Africa Twin model at the top of this segment, and judging by the number of orders that make importers, it appears to be on track.
One think is sure.Exitment is not going to miss to enyone with this motorcycle!!
