Real Adventure Sports Ability
Ready to go long? A 24.8L fuel tank delivers extended fuel range and, for those huge horizon-to-horizon days, cruise control, heated grips and ACC/USB charging sockets all make a big difference.
Where to next? That’s up to you. 24.8L of fuel gives a potential range of over 500km. Great when you’re not sure where the next petrol station is. The new 5-way adjustable windscreen is shorter, opening up the view forward but carefully angled so that along with the upper fairing offers the same excellent protection. And because who knows what the weather will be like tomorrow – or around the next corner – heated grips take the cold out.
Out on a long-range tour, fully loaded, you need instant acceleration for overtaking. No hesitation. The twin-cylinder engine offers a muscular output, precise throttle connection and advanced riding technology such as HSTC and Wheelie Control. You can keep it simple, using four default riding modes, or get personal and set the engine your way. Six-speed DCT is also an option for relaxed automatic or rapid manual shifting.
Whether you’re riding off-grid, off-road or two-up and fully loaded on tour, there are two suspension setups for you to choose between; high-quality, adjustable 45mm Showa inverted front forks and rear shock or the addition of Showa Electronically Equipped Ride Adjustment (Showa EERA™) for optimum damping settings all the time. It’s easy; SOFT, MID and HARD settings cover all scenarios between touring and sports, and there’s an OFF-ROAD setting. A USER option allows a custom setup and rear spring preload can also be adjusted electronically.
Riding all day, it pays to see and be seen. Stylish, dual LED headlights look great and feature Daytime Running Lights (DRL) that automatically adjust to ambient light intensity and give a bright, highly visible light, alerting other road users of your presence and improving safety. Additional Cornering Lights use speed and lean angle to automatically illuminate blind spots when cornering in the dark. And, over 50km/h, Emergency Stop Signals (ESS) indicate a hard-stop situation to those behind, adjusting to suit road conditions.
As standard you can set seat height at either 850 or 870mm. But everybody’s different, so there are two colour-matched seat options available; the 25mm lower 825-845mm low seat, and the 25mm taller 875-895mm high seat.
Built tough for the rigours of extended travel, the 42L lightweight aluminium top box can store one full-face helmet with a maximum load of 6kg. It mounts directly to the rear rack, comes complete with pillion back rest and Honda one-key system.
Offer 33L right, 37L left carrying capacity with a maximum load of 10kg each. Overall width when fitted is less than 100cm; the Honda one-key system ensures convenient access with the ignition key, and waterproof inner bags are also available.
A compact size means this tank bag does not get in the way when riding off-road. It features a window pocket for a map, is waterproof and fits both the Africa Twin and Africa Twin Adventure Sports with a one-touch buckle and magnets. Maximum load is 1.5kg.
Finished with a durable electrolytic polishing process for corrosion resistance and easy cleaning. Elevates adventure style while providing valuable protection for engine and fairing. Also mounting point for LED fog lights.
The dual LED fog lights improve visibility and mount on the front side pipes (available separately). They emit bright white light with intensity adjustable via a switch on the handlebar. Activation is displayed on the TFT touchscreen.
