2018 Africa Twin going ‘big tank’ and more enduro

Honda’s Africa Twin is getting a more-enduro make over for 2018 with a ‘Big Tank’ version of the popular big Adventure bike.

According to top Japanese magazine Young Machine, the new version of the bike – which will be unveiled at the EICMA motorcycle show in the second week of November – is getting a larger tank (up from 18 litres to 22), a newly sculpted enduro one-piece seat, a revised set of headlights, minor changes to the bodywork and a more upswept exhaust.


The bike is also going to ape the original Africa Twin in terms of styling with the frame, subframe and swingarm in a polished silver, as they were on the original machine when it was launched in 1988, pictured below.
