2020 Africa Twin Adventure Sports ADV deliveries commence in India
Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd, today announced beginning of deliveries of the new-gen Africa Twin Adventure Sports in India by handing over the keys to the first customer at Honda's exclusive premium big-bike dealership, the Honda BigWing in Gurugram, Haryana.
The Africa Twin CRF1100L which was revealed at the EICMA and the Tokyo Motor Show in October 2019, had already made its way into the Indian market via the CKD route. The Japanese giant is locally assembling the new Africa Twin at its plant in Rajasthan, allowing the new motorcycle to maintain a competitive price tag in the booming middleweight adventure motorcycle segment.
As the name suggests, the Africa Twin is powered by an 1,084cc parallel-twin engine that is good for 102PS of power and 105Nm of torque. The increase in engine capacity comes courtesy of the new Euro V emission norms - but Honda has also chosen this opportunity to give the Africa Twin a new chassis, a six-axis IMU (by Bosch) and a sophisticated digital instrumentation that draws a page from the Goldwing's brochure and integrates Apple CarPlay smartphone interface! The 2020 Africa Twin CRF1100L is available in two transmission options - the convenient DCT automatic or a 6-speed conventional manual with a foot shifter. Both the variants weigh 236kg and 226kg respectively. The IMU brings along Wheelie Control, four riding modes (Tour, Urban, Gravel and Off-road) and a more fine-tuned traction control system (still seven-step). There is finally a cruise control system onboard too.
"Starting the BSVI era of its premium motorcycle business, Honda introduced the brand new 2020 Africa Twin Adventure Sports in March this year. We are pleased to announce the first delivery to the proud #TrueAdventure lover." commented, Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Director Sales & Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd
