Honda Canada has confirmed the Africa Twin is coming to our market, and DCT will be an option.
According to Honda Canada’s press release, the Africa Twin will be available by the spring of 2016. The original Africa Twin wasn’t officially brought in, although you sometimes see them around. But with the boom in adventure bike sales in recent years, there wasn’t much doubt Big Red would bring in their new bike; the main question was which options would be available. Now we know.
Honda will bring three paint schemes in for the bike next year: black, red/black, and silver. The manual-shift bike will be available in all three paint schemes, but the DCT bike will only be available in silver.
The spec sheet sent through by Honda Canada seems to pretty much agree with the Euro specs we saw last week. The big number we’re waiting for, though, is still unavailable. Honda has yet to release a Canadian MSRP.
