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.


Design

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. 


Engine 

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.


Features

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.


Specifications

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.
