The Adventure variant will be the more premium between the two and will offer features like a cross-spoke design for the wheels (tubeless tyre compatible), a tall windscreen, a larger fuel tank, top-box and pannier mounts, and a wider sump guard. The higher-spec variant will also come fitted with a pair of auxiliary lights under the primary headlamp for brighter illumination. On the other hand, the Standard variant will come with a shorter windscreen and won’t get rims which are compatible with a tubeless tyre. The bike will also miss the top box and pannier mounts and feature a smaller tank than the Adventure variant. Both, the standard and the Adventure variant will feature off-road biased setup for the wheels.

However, both variants will feature full-LED lighting, a new TFT display and the chassis, sub-frame and the swingarm will also get updates. A big change in the engine department will mean that the bike will be powered by a Euro-V compliant 1,084 cc engine, compared to a 998 cc unit which powers the current bike. The maximum power output from the parallel-twin, liquid-cooled motor will be 101 PS as against 94 PS on the current bike. The 2020 Africa Twin will be available with dual-clutch automatic or manual transmission options. The Indian market will most likely get the DCT version only. Braking duties will be handled by dual, petal-type discs up front and a single unit at the back. An update to the electronics could make the 2020 Africa Twin gain cornering ABS.
