Auto Expo 2018: New 2018 Honda Africa Twin Gets Updated Rider Modes And Traction Control


Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India showcased 11 models at the 14th Auto Expo 2018. Leading from the front is Honda’s brand new 160cc motorcycle, the X-Blade along with 10 exciting 2018 editions (6 domestic models and 4 global fun bikes).

One of those 11 models was the 2018 edition of the Honda Africa Twin which is designed to take the road less travelled. The new 2018 Honda Africa Twin gets new throttle by wire technology with 3 new rider modes for custom engine character and traction. The true adventure motorcycle also gets a new, lighter lithium ion battery (2.3 kg lighter), all new instrumentation, stainless steel spokes with redesigned footrest hangers for better off-road use and new emergency stop signal function in the rear indicators.

The performance numbers are identical to the 2017 model. So the motorcycle continues to use 998cc liquid-cooled 4-stroke Unicam 8-valve Parallel Twin with 270-degree crank motor that is tuned to make 65Kw (87 BHP) of peak power @ 7,500 rpm and 92Nm of peak torque @ 6,000 rpm.
