What Is It?

The Honda Africa Twin is a premium adventure bike and is powered by a liquid cooled 742 cc V-Twin four stroke engine, producing 62 bhp at 7,500 rpm and maximum torque at 6,500 rpm.

Features include:

  • Dual 276 mm discs up front with Nissin two piston calipers
  • 256 mm disc at the rear with Nissin single piston caliper
  • 43 mm Showa fork with 220 mm travel
  • Rear shock with 214 mm travel
  • 38 mm carburettors
  • Aluminium belly pan, hand guards
  • 5 speed gearbox, electric starter

Honda launched the XRV750 to replace the XRV650 (RD03) however the 650 was never officially available in the UK. For comparison purposes it made 57 bhp at 8,000 rpm and maximum torque at 6,000 rpm from a liquid cooled 647 cc four stroke V-Twin engine and weighed 185 kg dry. The seat height was 880 mm, the front disc was enclosed and there was a generous 25 litre fuel capacity.

The XRV750 made 5 bhp more lower down the range, had dual discs up front, a larger rear brake and weighed the same but it offered 2 litres less fuel capacity.

While the 650 was essentially a modified Honda Transalp with more suspension travel, the 750 featured a new engine design specifically for the model. The wire-spoked 21" front wheel takes a 90/90 tyre and the rear 17" a 140/80.

Colours: Red/white/blue, green/yellow/brown
