SO WHAT’S HAP­PENED TO THE COOK­ING VER­SION?

BIKE (UK) - - HONDA AFRICA TWIN ADVENTURE SPORTS -

Honda’s stan­dard Africa Twin re­ceives some of the Ad­ven­ture Sports’ changes for 2018. Most no­tice­able is the new in­stru­ment panel and seven-stage trac­tion con­trol. Else­where, there’s a new lithium-ion bat­tery, stain­less steel wheel spokes, self-can­celling in­di­ca­tors, emer­gency brake lights, wider foot­pegs for eas­ier off-road con­trol, and re­designed pil­lion ’peg brack­ets for less in­ter­fer­ence dur­ing stand-up rid­ing. A smaller-ca­pac­ity ex­haust pro­vides more growl, and re­designed air­box and bal­ancer shaft im­prove midrange re­sponse. All this with a 2kg weight re­duc­tion and £11,575 on the road. Ex­pect £12,549 for the DCT.
