INTRODUCING THE AFRICA TWIN ADVENTURE SPORTS DCT ES
Lighter, more powerful and with more features than ever, the new Africa Twin range is ready for even bigger adventures. Happy to carry you even farther and offering the Honda quality, ruggedness and dependability you need when your miles from home. We've taken what we think is the world's best adventure bike and made it even better, with 4 options to choose from and a whole suite of features including cruise control and a large touch-panel multi-information display that's Apple CarPlay™ compatible. What are you waiting for?
The new five-position windscreen offers excellent wind protection, and lets you set your bike up for off-road sections or long highway rides. Great for both taller and shorter riders. Other Africa Twin models come with fixed, Rally-style windscreens.
ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED SUSPENSION
The Africa Twin Adventure Sports ES DCT is equipped with SHOWA EERA®(Electronically Equipped Ride Adjustment) electronically controlled suspension. You can choose between five suspension damper settings: hard, medium, soft, and off-road, as well as a customizable "user" setting. It's easy to switch between them, too, so you can choose one for the highway and another when the going gets rougher.
SIX-SPEED DCT AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
Available on the Africa Twin Adventure Sports DCT and ES models, this is the transmission of the future. Inside, it's as tough as a conventional manual, with steel gears throughout. You can let it shift for you, or paddle shifters in the manual mode give you full control. Four settings (Drive, Sport 1, 2, and 3) let you pick what's right for your riding conditions.
LARGE FUEL TANK
The Africa Twin Adventure Sports DCT ES has an increased capacity of 24 litres, enough for super-sized adventures.
We've changed the Africa Twin's fairing to give you better wind management. We've also taken the opportunity to fine-tune the headlights. You're sure to appreciate the changes on longer rides - plus the new fairing just looks great, too.
NEW TFT TOUCHSCREEN DISPLAY
The new Africa Twins feature a 6.5-inch touch-panel LCD multi-information dash display. You can choose between three displays, too, depending on how much information you want to see at once. The screen also enables the Africa Twin to offer integrated Apple CarPlay™ & Android Auto™ capabilities.
Standard on the Africa Twin Adventure Sports ES model, these seem like a luxury until the first time you really need them. Then there's never going back.
By using counterbalancing elements on two axes, Honda's engineers can cancel out both primary and coupling vibrations from the engine. The result is that we can mount the engine solidly for superior strength and handling, yet you still get an extraordinarily smooth, vibration-free ride.
Tubeless tyres are standard on the Adventure Sports ES model. Tubeless tyres run cooler and there's a great selection of adventure-bike rubber available today. Get a flat while out on a big adventure? Flat tyre repairs will be a lot easier too.
