2023 Africa Twin Adventure Sports ES – DCT



Humans have always wondered what lies over the horizon. First, we walked. Then we had horses. And now we have the best exploration tool yet: the Honda Africa Twin. And to celebrate the 30th anniversary of our original Africa Twin, we introduce the Africa Twin Adventure Sports. Same great engine, but optimized for riders looking for more range and comfort, on and off the road. You get a bigger fuel tank, more suspension travel, a larger skid plate, wider foot pegs, a larger windscreen, and more. So, turn your next vacation into an adventure, with our incomparable Africa Twin.
