What Is It?

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

Features include:

  • Dual 276mm discs up front with Nissin 2 piston calipers
  • 256mm disc at the rear with Nissin single piston caliper
  • 43mm Showa fork with 220mm travel
  • Rear shock with 214mm travel
  • 38mm 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 57bhp at 8,000rpm and maximum torque at 6,000rpm from a liquid cooled 647cc four stroke V-Twin engine and weighed 185kg dry. The seat height was 880mm, the front disc was enclosed and there was a generous 25 litre fuel capacity.

The XRV750 made 5bhp 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

1992: Dash upgraded to part digital.
