All 2017 Africa Twin models will feature new stainless steel spokes, perfect for some added durability. Apart from all of the obvious adventure riding capabilities, the Africa Twin is a comfortable and exciting commuter for on road.

With overwhelming feedback from recent product testing held in Sydney and Queensland earlier this month, the Africa Twin was the stand out as most popular model during tests.

Attendees were impressed with the Africa Twin’s fun factor on the road, its surprisingly nimble and easy to handle chassis and its power thanks to the 998cc, liquid cooled, four-stroke, PGM-FI electronic fuel injected engine.

An all-round beauty; have a chat to your local Honda dealer today to book a test ride on the 2017 Africa Twin and see why it has become the best-selling adventure bike in the market (according to data from most recent FCAI Report).
