The All New Honda Africa Twin Adventure Sport First Look

Honda 2 Wheels India has announced that the Africa Twin Adventure Sport will launch in the Indian market. This latest iteration of the company’s iconic adventure model features an updated color palette. Here are the top five highlights of the Honda Africa Twin Adventure Sport.

Africa Twin is a name deeply rooted in the Dakar spirit. The experience of winning the most challenging desert rally four times in a row, including the debut, is the original creation of the XRV650 Africa Twin. Africa Twin opens a new chapter for this myth. More powerful than ever, this car offers driving comfort while maintaining the ethics of the attractive Dakar NXR750 engine.

That styling changed dramatically in 2020 when the Japanese brand was updated to meet the latest quality standards. As a result, model did not change any of the plans. Features of the list include large double-sided headlights, adjustable windshield, shock absorber, splitter splitter, flame retardant, aluminum foil, and unparalleled wheels.

The color is changed as described above, and the model manual transmission is sold in Black Metallic dark color.
