Return of a legend

The original Africa Twin was designed to withstand thousands of miles of desert and dirt. Now it’s back to reclaim the Adventure category it defined back in 1988.

The Paris-Dakar Rally: 8,500 punishing kilometres of dunes, mud, camel grass and rock. The Africa Twin conquered it all.

In 1981, Honda took its very first steps into the Paris-Dakar Rally – the toughest off-road motorcycle race in the world. Just five years later, the Africa Twin dominated the event with a 1-2-3 finish – then won the next, and the next, and the next.
