The Africa Twin ;s parallel-twin engine layout makes the bike shorter front-to-back. That means the front wheel can tuck in closer to the engine, shortening wheelbase and making the bike more nimble off road and on pavement.LONG TRAVEL SUSPENSION
The Africa Twin doesn't just look like an adventure bike ƒ?? it ;s the real deal. Exhibit A: Check out its long-travel suspension. The fork features huge 45mm tubes and 9.1 inches of travel, while the single-shock rear Pro-Link suspension is also fully adjustable, with 8.7 inches of travel and a convenient remote preload adjustment. Our Adventure Sports version offers 9.9 inches of travel up front and 9.4 inches of travel in the rear.TRANSMISSION CHOICE
You pick: The Africa Twin and Africa Twin Adventure Sports are available with either our standard six-speed manual gearbox or Honda ;s exclusive automatic six-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT). Both transmissions are excellent choices, and both feature stout, strong steel gears inside—the only difference is who does the shifting.
