The Honda Africa Twin is an absolute legend in the dual-sporting community, and American riders were always heartbroken that this beauty never made it to the United States. We almost never see these up for sale in the states, so we’re very excited to feature one for you now. How good is this bike? It’s based on the NXR-750, which won Paris-Dakar rally four times. Case closed.
In 1993, the Africa Twin enjoyed a revision including a new frame, plastics and engine modifications. The engine was tuned for reliability over peak figures, but you still got an easy 60 horsepower and 46 pound feet of torque. These bikes are as reliable as you’ll find, and though fuel economy isn’t stellar (expect to get around 35 mpg), that’s a minor price to pay for a bike that you can take nearly everywhere around the world. Keep up with regular maintenance and keep a spare CDI on the bike, and you should be set forever.
This specific Honda Africa Twin has had an incredible amount of upgrades already done to it. Highlights include engine guards, a skid plate, Touratech panniers and trunk, a Corbin seat, and Ohlins rear shock. There are plenty of extras beyond these, but nothing tops the 12 GALLON spare fuel tank. Talk about range.
