- Features upgraded electronics and clocks
- Bookings to commence in June
- To be available in limited numbers
While it looks the same, the 2018 Africa Twin features a slew of upgrades under the skin. The instrument cluster has been redesigned and repositioned to offer a better view while standing up and riding. At the heart of the Africa Twin is the same 998cc parallel-twin engine, although it now gets a longer airbox. The bike also gets a lighter balancer shaft, and a lithium-ion battery which help in shaving weight. As for the riding aids, the Africa Twin gets four individual riding modes and a seven-level traction-control system. It rides on Bridgestone dual-sport tyres in place of Dunlops.
The new Africa Twin will continue to be offered with a DCT gearbox. Honda will bring only a limited number of motorcycles to the Indian market. Bookings for the Africa Twin will commence in the first week of June, and we expect it to be priced around the same range as the previous model.
