Honda Africa Twin Adventure Sports For Sale

Pros

  • Automatic gearbox option
  • Huge range, looks great

Cons

  • Super high seat, weight
  • Non-adjustable screen

What Is It?

It's powered by a Euro 4 compliant liquid cooled 998cc 270° parallel twin engine, producing 93.9bhp at just 7,500rpm and maximum torque at 6,000rpm. RRP is £12,600 or £13,550 with DCT.

  • Steel twin spar frame and sub-frame
