2022 Honda Africa Twin launched in India; Prices start at Rs. 16.01 Lakh
The 2022 Honda Africa Twin will be brought into the country via the CKD (Completely Knocked Down) route and reservations have begun at Big Wing Topline dealerships
Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India today announced the launch of the Africa Twin Adventure Sports 2022 in the domestic market and its prices start at Rs. 16.01 lakh for the manual transmission and it goes up to Rs. 17.55 lakh (all prices ex showroom, Haryana) for the variant fitted with a dual clutch transmission.
Reservations for the 2022 Honda Africa Twin have started at Big Wing Topline dealerships in India and it will be introduced into the country via the CKD (Completely Knocked Down) route. Since the Africa Twin is a well-known high-end adventure touring machine, the Japanese manufacturer expects to attract a good part of the public with the new version.
Honda has made available the dual-clutch version in the Matte Ballistic Black Metallic colorway while the cheaper variant fitted with a manual transmission comes in the Pearl Glare White Tricolor paint scheme evoking a retro appeal. The Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports benefits from a 110mm lower five-step adjustable windscreen.
The high handlebars provide a more upright riding position with great visibility and the rear section has a narrow profile and the seat is contoured to allow good ground reach and easy rider movement. Dual-LED headlights are set high with LED daytime running lights that automatically adjust their intensity to ambient conditions, while knuckle guards are standard.
Other highlights are a 6.5-inch color TFT touchscreen with Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and it can be personalized. The powertrain features the Throttle By Wire (TBW) system for much finer management of power and engine character, as well as Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) for better grip on the road.
The 1082.9cc liquid-cooled 8V OHC parallel-twin engine is used. It develops a maximum power of 98 hp at 7,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 103 Nm delivered at 6,000 rpm. The updated DCT gains new settings to deliver a smoother ride in the first two gears. The electronic assistance system includes a six-axis IMU, anti-lock brakes, four riding modes (Tour, Urban, Gravel and Off-Road), personalized user settings, and more.
