Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India has announced the launch of the 2022 Honda Africa Twin Adventure Sports in the Indian market, with prices starting at Rs. 16.01 lakh for the manual transmission and rising to Rs. 17.55 lakh for the dual-clutch transmission-equipped variant (all prices ex-showroom, Haryana).
Bookings for the 2022 Honda Africa Twin have begun at Big Wing Topline dealerships across India, and the vehicle will be imported via the CKD (Completely Knocked Down) route. Because the Africa Twin is a well-known high-end adventure touring bike, the Japanese manufacturer expects the new version to garner a sizable crowd.
2022 Honda Africa Twin Features
The dual-clutch version comes in a Matte Ballistic Black Metallic color scheme, while the manual transmission-equipped variant comes in a Pearl Glare White Tricolor paint scheme with throwback appeal. A 110 mm lower five-stage adjustable windscreen comes standard on the Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports.
The tall set handlebars provide a more upright riding stance with excellent visibility, while the compact tail section and contoured seat allow for good ground reach and easy rider mobility. The knuckle guards are standard, and the twin LED headlights are set high with LED DRLs that automatically alter their intensity depending on the ambient conditions.
