Honda teases new Africa Twin

Honda are continuing the build-up to the launch of the all-new Africa Twin next year with the second in a series of videos exploring the history of the famous name.

Despite the firm heavily falling back on the road and racing history of the famous Africa Twin name the company is still insisting on calling the bike True Adventure; the name the concept bike shown at the Milan show and then later at Motorcycle Live in the UK was called.

‘Episode 2 is called “Live Unlike The Others” and Honda says it “focuses on the personal stories of individuals who have all been inspired by the spirit of adventure in their own way. All riders featured are real people, with real stories and many of them are currently on adventures around the world, aboard their Honda motorcycles.”

The first video covered the Paris-Dakar rally racing heritage of the Africa Twin from the heyday of the racing in the 1980s when it was still racing across the desert of Africa.

The new Africa Twin is set to be shown in full finished form in 2015 to go on sale in 2016 according to MCN sources.
