For the most ambitious adventures. Some people can’t help but dream big, plotting the most epic rides to all four corners of the earth. And the all-new Africa Twin® is the bike that will let you live those dreams. With a name made famous from Paris to Dakar and beyond, it has renowned reliability, the latest technology, and unsurpassed capability, allowing you to wander as far as your imagination allows.
The Africa Twin®’s parallel-twin engine layout makes the bike shorter front-to-back. That means the front wheel can tuck in closer to the engine, shortening wheelbase and making the bike more nimble off road and on pavement.
The Africa Twin might look like an off-road powerhouse. But its lightweight construction keeps it nimble on the road, too and is full of neat little design touches that nod to the past.
Brilliant design withstands the test of time – and the Africa Twin is no different.Whether it’s the dual headlights with their handsome looks and great visibility, or the range of rally paintwork to choose from, the new Africa Twin pays homage to the original with classic styling that still looks great today.
