A New Adventure Is Coming
Rumors of a new Africa Twin have surfaced in the past. Sometimes its that Honda will build a bigger one, sometimes its that the company will build a smaller one. I don’t care what it chooses to build, but I’m excited about it. The Africa Twin is a killer bike, and whatever iteration Honda puts out next will likely be a good bike, too.
The new model may come in 2020. I say that because the company just teased a new adventure bike. The video below doesn’t include much information or even give you a look at the motorcycle, but it’s an announcement, of sorts, that Honda has a new adventure bike on the way. Seeing as how there have been so many rumors about a new Africa Twin, I’d expect that’s what this is.
It makes sense that Honda would update the Africa Twin, or come out with an additional version of the model. With Euro 5 emissions standards looming, the company will likely have to update the engine or come up with a new engine. RideApart suggests the engine will increase in size. I think that’s probable. I would also like to see a middleweight version of the Africa Twin. Give me a 750cc or an 800cc. Heck, even a 650cc would be cool.
You can watch the teaser below. I’ll keep you posted with any future information.
