Post Sale Update: A no reserve auction feels like the most honest way to know the value of a bike. In this case, 50 bids got this Africa Twin up to $3,501.
The RD04 generation of Honda’s legendary Africa Twin was produced between 1990 and 1992 – it was the second generation. The styling was quite similar to the first gen but it got a new 742cc V-Twin engine, improvements to the chassis, and triple disc brakes.
The AT was based on Honda’s impressive desert racers, which had good success in competitions like the Paris-Dakar rally. It produced “just” 61 horsepower but the goal was for long term reliability and easily managed output, not winning drag races. That’s why this bike has a stellar reputation for reliability (though of course, it has some issues). Many riders have seen six figure readings on their odometers. And if I do say so myself, this looks much better than most modern big enduros.
This example (VIN; RD042100819) has 66,282 miles which has been “just freed from its shipping container.” The seller says there are lots of things to nitpick from a visual standpoint, but the bike runs very well. The seller used to enjoy this bike in the UK and brought it to the US, so you’ll need to work out some paperwork. The bike is equipped with a Laser exhaust (stock included) and a GIVI topbox.
