The latest bit of adventure bike gossip to hit the Internet says Honda is planning a revamp of its Africa Twin adventure bike.
Although the Japanese factories are notoriously tight-lipped when it comes to projects under development, this is the second such rumour we’ve had this week, with an earlier report of an updated Suzuki DR Big on its way.
So what would an updated Africa Twin entail? According to rumours published by UK site BikeSocial, the most significant change is a supposed big bore, to the 1100 cc range, resulting in a 5 hp boost to approximately 99 hp. The new engine will also be Euro5-legal, to keep sales alive in the EU. Other changes would include a new set of TFT gauges and larger fuel tank.
