2019 Africa Twin bookings have been opened at all 22 dealerships however only for 50 units…
After consolidating its mid-size range with the CB300R and CBR650R, Honda has now launched the 2019 Africa Twin in India. The adventure tourer comes with second generation Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) which saves you from gear change hassles. There are different modes which you can select depending on what kind of a terrain you are riding.
The second-gen DCT gets a G switch which accelerates ‘aggressive gear shifting’ to provide better control in dirt/gravel-filled corners. The Incline Detection Technology detects if the motorcycle is going up or down a slope and the ECU makes appropriate gear selections accordingly.
Other features include Throttle by Wire, Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), ABS, Showa cartridge-type inverted front fork, pre-load adjuster on both wheels and an option of adjusting suspension etc.
It continues to be powered by the same 999.11 cc parallel twin engine which produces 87.7 bhp of peak power at 7500 rpm and 93.1 Nm of max torque at 6000 rpm.
