Honda’s African Twin “Enduro Sports” Concept!
The Africa Twin Enduro Sports Concept Is The Ultimate Motorcycle
Updated August 16, 2018
Honda have given their classic Africa Twin adventure bike a facelift, and we hope that this concept will one day go into production! There’s no denying that Honda’s latest version of the legendary Africa Twin is a great bike, and it has received universal acclaim from all those who have had the pleasure of taking one for a spin, but something was definitely lacking. It was a little lackluster: everything was “fine” or “good,” – nothing was particularly fantastic about it though. And Honda seem to have realized their mistake.
And here is their response. It’s called the Africa Twin Enduro Sports, and thankfully, it’s a little more progressive than last year’s Africa Twin design. In essence, it’s your regular Africa Twin with a bit of sex appeal injected into it. Coming with a wide range of sports orientated components, and built on top of a lighter chassis, it’s definitely a little more interesting than the standard model. Honda have gone as far as to call it the “Queen of the off-road,” but we reckon it’s better without that tagline. I’m sure you’ll all agree. Here’s what Honda had to say:
“The Africa Twin Enduro Sports concept has been created to expand the Africa Twin family and capture the imagination of customers dreaming of new possibilities for this ‘Go Anywhere’ adventure machine. As such, with the Enduro Sports version, Honda’s R&D designers have pushed the concept of the CRF1000L Africa Twin to new limits, with a vision for even better off-road ability. The base model has been embellished with several lighter weight chassis parts, derived from Honda’s single-cylinder racing CRF models. The overall look and feel is one of lightness with a sporty attitude.”
We’ve got no idea when this bad boy will go into production, but a good guess would point to 2018. However, like most concepts, expect the finished production model to be a little more watered down than the one you see in the pictures…Having said that, we don’t mind if they water this down – only on the condition that they put the rest of their efforts into their new CB1100 TR concept instead. Because that’s what we really want to see!
