Africa Twin Adventure Sport
« on: October 03, 2018, 11:06:49 am »
Hi Guys. Are these available in South Africa? I cant seem to find the Adventure Sport on Honda's website yet local articles state that the bike will be coming to our country?

There are actually loads of upgrades done to the adventure sport compared to the standard model.

2018 Model Standard Features:
* New instrument panel
* Throttle by wire
* Three riding modes (Tour, Urban, Gravel)
* Minor intake and exhaust changes
* Lighter balancer shafts
* Lithium-ion battery
* Seven levels of HSTC (traction control)
* Wider footpegs with steel brackets
* Redesigned passenger pegs
* Redesigned LED turn signals

Adventure Sport standard Extras:
* Fuel capacity increased to 6.37 gallons (extra 1.4 gallons)
* Fork travel increased to 8.9 inches (extra 0.9 inch)
* Shock travel increased to 9.4 inches (extra 0.8 inch)
* Ground clearance increased to 10.6 inches (extra 0.8 inch)
* Seat height increased to 35.4 inches (extra 1.2 inches)
* Redesigned flat seat
* Handlebar height increased (extra 1.3 inches)
* New windscreen (80mm taller)
* Larger skid plate
* Standard crash bars
* Redesigned steel luggage rack
* Standard heated grips
* Standard 12-volt accessory socket
* Rear storage pocket

Such a pity Honda South Africa is so backwards. They dont even have the 2018 models yet and are selling the 2017 models and just registering it as a 2018.
We will only see the 2018 model with the adventure sport in December according to the dealer (2019 is close to launch).  >:(

Sorry and the estimated price for the adventure sport is around R200k/R210k
