The Honda Africa Twin in Africa. Where else?

Seems I might have been wrong about this bike, positive reports so far about it's offroad capabilities  :thumleft:

+ 1

Maar dit is 'n baie mooi bike, dink ons gaan binnekort baie van hulle op die pad sien,  :deal:

As ek BMW was het ek somer dadelik produksie gestop op die  GS 800 reeks, dink hulle gaan moet specials gooi om ontslae te raak van huidige stock.  :imaposer: :imaposer:

When everybody started talking about this bike quite a while ago, I was not very interested. I thought, "you are all expecting a Ktm 990 with a pair of wings on, that will never happen, Honda doesn't do exciting". Well, it seems like it IS a Ktm 990 with a pair of wings on. Honda may just have built an amazing bike. Can not wait to hear what that parallel twin with a full exhaust sounds like. :o

2-Stroke, enough of the suspense, were you at the launch?
