Description

REDEFINING ADVENTURE
Some people just can’t take “No” for an answer. Neither can some bikes. Enter the 2019 Honda Africa Twin and Africa Twin Adventure Sports. Designed for endless possibilities, they know no boundaries. Both share the same legendary engine and frame, but the Africa Twin Adventure Sports is optimized for range and comfort—with a bigger fuel tank, more suspension travel, a larger skid plate, wider footpegs, a larger windscreen, and more. This year, the Africa Twin is available in stunning Matte Black Metallic and Blue/White/Red, while the Africa Twin Adventure Sports is now available in Light Silver/Gray Metallic. So, whether you’re getting ready for a weekend or a year away, a Honda Africa Twin is ready and able.

AFRICA TWIN SELECT A TRIM POWER
PARALLEL-TWIN ENGINE LAYOUT
The Africa Twin’s parallel-twin engine layout makes the bike shorter front-to-back. That means the front wheel can tuck in closer to the engine, shortening wheelbase and making the bike more nimble off road and on pavement.

ENGINEERING
THROTTLE BY WIRE
Our throttle-by-wire system greatly expands the Africa Twin’s versatility. First, you get seven levels of Honda Selectable Torque Control. Second, you can choose from four power delivery modes: Tour, Urban, Gravel, and a fourth that’s user-programmable. First used on our RC213V-S, throttle-by-wire is an excellent example of how Honda’s technology works for you.

PERFORMANCE
SIX-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION
The Africa Twin features a conventional six-speed manual gearbox with a handlebar-mounted clutch lever. It’s a proven, tough design that’s a little bit lighter, too.
