Honda are tantalisingly close to releasing the super cool and all new Africa Twin bike towards the end of this year. The Africa Twin bike is a production version of the prototype shown in Milan recently that caused quite a stir.
For those of you too young, this bike is an update of the legendary Africa Twin produced by Honda in the late 80’s (1988 and 1989) that was loved by some many motorbike fans. This was basically the motorbike that really launched the off-roading biking movement across the World, so it’s very exciting news that this bike is coming back in 2015.
Those lucky few who get to test drive Honda’s pride and joy before the general public have our, and I’m sure most of our readers, dream job. So whose job is it? Well, in the video you’re about to watch below, this enviable task of testing the all new Africa Twin bike is in the hands of a unique band of Genteki riders who remain in the shadows, out of sight away from prying eyes. These riders put Honda’s development machines through their paces and make sure that every bike released is worthy of the name. I can imagine that getting out of bed on a Monday morning for that particular job wouldn’t be too difficult.
Check out this video:
Honda say the new 2015 Africa twin will be true to the original bike that had off-road biking fans around the World eating out of their hands.
This is a motorbike that not only performs outstandingly off-road in the mud/dirt and what it’s famous for..but equally the bike performs on the road.
Honda’s revolutionary new Dual Clutch Transmission powers the Africa Twin bike which has been developed to give the off-road experience even more grip and control.
Judge for yourself from the pictures, but we think it’s one of the most exciting bikes to be released in recent years.
