Patent drawings reveal more details of Africa Twin

So, like we told you last week, the Africa Twin revival really is happening. Honda plans to bring a new version of their classic adventure tourer back to market next year.

Never mind that Canadians barely bought any Africa Twins the first time around – the ADVRider and IBAR online groups and their like have been clamoring for this bike for a long time now. Now, here are some more drawings of what Honda is bringing to market.

We gave you some details (1000 cc motor, optional DCT transmission) last week. Probably the biggest questions left are What will it weigh?, What will it cost? and When can I get one? These imagess do nothing to answer those questions, but they give you an idea of what the bike will look like when it arrives …

By the way, we got these shots from Asphalt & Rubber, who got them from an Australian patent filing unearthed by Dutch magazine Oliepeil.

  1. Canadians were never afforded the opportunity to buy an African twin.

    Transalp was available in Canada in 1987.

    Both were way ahead of the adventure curve.

    So Canadians get your cheque book out.

    Trade in those cruisers!


    • Yeah, they are rare because they weren’t officially available, to my knowledge, but I have seen them for sale.
