2022 Honda Africa Twin Adventure Sports launched in IndiaPosted On: March 21, 2022 By : Ashmita KC
Honda has launched the 2022 version of the Africa Twin Adventure Sports in India. The new adventure sports bike is offered in two variants, with different transmission modes (either a manual transmission or a dual clutch transmission)–at a starting price of INR 16.01 lakh.
The Honda gets a typical adventure-oriented styling: a tall aluminium-tapered handlebar, adjustable windscreen, narrow seat, rally-type fairing, and optional aluminium luggage. The front end gets dual LED headlights with (DRLs) and cornering lights.
The new Africa Twin Adventure gets Honda’s exclusive Unicam® engine design and is powered by a 1084cc parallel twin-cylinder engine. The engine is mated to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed DCT transmission (throttle-by-wire) to generate a power of 98 hp at 7500 rpm and a maximum torque of 103 Nm at 6000 rpm.
The bike comes with six riding modes: Tour, Urban, Gravel, Off-Road, and two custom modes.
The motorcycle gets a 6.5-inch touchscreen TFT display–compatible with Apple Carplay and Android Auto–that provides access to maps, bluetooth connectivity, music playlists, weather, and telephone numbers, among others.
Furthermore, the motorcycle comes with a six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), dual-channel ABS, long-travel front suspension, electronic controlled suspension, electric preload adjuster, 43-degree steering lock, hollow axle shafts, wheelie control, and tubeless tyres.
The bike gets a semi-double cradle steel frame to improve strength and support the engine. Suspension duty has been taken care of by a 45mm inverted telescopic fork at the front and a Pro-Link® system/single shock at the rear. For braking, the bike gets two four-piston hydraulic callipers with 310mm discs at the front, and at the rear is a single one-piston hydraulic calliper with a 256 mm disc.
Furthermore, the bike boasts a fuel tank capacity of 23 litres.
