The Honda Africa Twin holds a special allure for me. I loved the last of the old breed and have covered a lot of miles on the new version – including riding 2100 miles from Oslo to Nordkapp on a DCT version in 2017.
This new 2020 model appears to answer many of my criticisms of that first version – but can it answer all of them?
I want to rack up over 10,000 miles in search of riding enjoyment both on and off-road to test its reliability and to see if an emotional connection – which never materialised with the previous model – emerges.
