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.

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.

FOUR-PISTON CALIPERS
Up front, the Africa Twin features twin four-piston brake calipers for powerful braking performance. The radial-mount design also helps make them stiffer, increasing brake feel and control.

ENGINEERING
THROTTLE BY WIRE

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

270-DEGREE-PHASE CRANK
Most twins use a 180-degree crank. By phasing the Africa Twin's at 270 degrees, you get a unique power delivery that’s easy to modulate, especially in terrain where traction is challenging.

HANDLING
LONG-TRAVEL SUSPENSION

The Africa Twin doesn't just look like an adventure bike—it’s the real deal. Exhibit A: Check out its long-travel suspension. The fork features huge 45mm tubes and 9.1 inches of travel, while the single-shock rear Pro-Link® suspension is also fully adjustable, with 8.7 inches of travel and a convenient remote preload adjustment.

43-DEGREE STEERING LOCK
With 43 degrees of steering lock both left and right, the Africa Twin provides excellent maneuverability on tight trails. This is one of the reasons the Africa Twin feels so much more nimble than many of the other bigger adventure bikes out there.
