Ever since Honda showed us their True Adventure concept, we have all been waiting eagerly for the arrival of the big adventure tourer from Japan. Now that it is here, it also brings with it the resurrection of a name that is hallowed in the adventure touring circles as perhaps the motorcycle that started it all - the Africa Twin. The new bike promises to be just a, if not more, exciting. The bike now gets a 998cc parallel twin to drive it. It will be available with an option of a DCT gearbox that will let you switch gears using switches on the handlebar. It also comes with a whole suite of electronics that has been specially tuned to work well off-roaf.
