We have seen in previous reports from Autocar India of its suspected launch in India but we are still waiting for an official confirmations from Honda Motorcycle India.
Africa Twin is built on a semi-double cradle-type frame using high-tensile steel, has high ground clearance with a low seat height option and a long 62-inch wheelbase, a typical feature for such class of motorcycles. The electronics primarily include switchable anti-lock braking system (ABS) and an advanced traction control system that comes with three operational modes.
The Africa Twin will be HMSI’s second model in the premium motorcycle class that will see local assembly operations. With Honda opting for CKD operations of its popular adventure cum on-road touring model for India, it is clearly understood that the company acknowledges the rising trend of such motorcycles in the evolving market.
Honda is likely to become the sixth global brand to bring its adventure tourer model to India, which already has top participating names such as Ducati, BMW Motorrad, Triumph Motorcycle India, Suzuki Motorycle India and India Kawasaki with models in the 800cc and above engine displacement category.
