Dakarstyle Africa Twin concept coming

Africa Twin Adventure Sports Concept coming this week

Dakarstyle Africa Twin concept coming
The existing Africa Twin

HONDA is to reveal a new concept bike derived from the Africa Twin at the Osaka Motorcycle Show on Saturday.

The firm has announced a list of its main attractions for the event, and among the debutants is the Africa Twin Adventure Sports Concept, which Honda says is “a concept model taking the adventurous spirit of its base, the CRF1000L Africa Twin, to a new level.”

While that doesn’t give away much, it’s worth bearing in mind that at the same event last year the firm revealed the CRF250F Rally concept, which took the chassis, engine and running gear from the CFR250L and covered them with bodywork similar to that used on the works CRF450 Rally. It’s likely that the new Africa Twin concept will take a similar path, given that Honda is emphasising both the ‘adventure’ and ‘sports’ elements in the machine.

At the same time as the new Africa Twin concept is shown, the CRF250 Rally will take its next step towards production. Honda has confirmed that the bike, shown as a ‘concept’ last March, will reappear in Osaka as a ‘prototype’. That’s just one step from being a production model; a year ago the True Adventure (Africa Twin) and RC213V-S were the two prototype bikes shown in Osaka, and both were in production within months of the event.
