Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > Africa Twin
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The Africa Twin uses a 998 cc parallel twin and features Dakar-esque styling. But its off-road capability is enhanced by long-travel suspension, and a 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wheel, the only bike in the segment using this combination, which offers a wider selection of serious off-road tires than conventional ADV bike wheels. Off-road ABS and traction control are standard and can be switched off. The Dual Clutch Transmission model offers easy automatic shifting, and costs $1,000 more than the standard model.
