Offering customers a two-day riding experience on some of the UK’s most varied, very best motorcycling terrain, the Honda Adventure Centre, based on the outskirts of the Brecon Beacons National Park, will cater for people of all off-roading abilities from enthusiastic novice through to seasoned adventure traveller.

Honda Adventure Centre customers will spend their time exploring the Welsh countryside, getting to grips with a mix of gravel and dirt trails, water traps, rocky climbs and descents.

The Africa Twin will head the line-up at the Honda Adventure Centre, on offer in both manual form and with the latest incarnation of Honda’s Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), including off-road ‘G’ mode, with incline detection.

As well as the launch of Africa Twin, Honda’s adventure range of bikes, in general, sees a shake-up for 2016. The A2 licence-friendly CB500X will receive a significant makeover, to include the addition of adjustable preload on its front forks and new damping rates for the rear shock. TheNC750X is also set for an adventurous redesign, including new DCT technology, to include 3 levels of ‘S’ mode. It will also get a suspension upgrade, with Showa’s Dual Bending Valves meaning improved damping and more linear performance. As both bikes are launched, they will join the line-up of ‘X’ family bikes on offer for Honda Adventure Centre customers, providing a comprehensive riding choice.

Owned by former multiple motocross world champion, Dave Thorpe, and managed by seasoned off-road racer and instructor, Pat Jackson, the Honda Adventure Centre will offer an exciting setting for those looking for something different on two wheels, as Dave explains: “Most of us that own a CB500X or NC750X and even those of us that take delivery of the new Africa Twin will spend the majority of our time on the road. The Honda Adventure Centre offers people the chance to see what their bikes – and they – are really capable of. With the combination of the stunning South Wales setting and the exciting mix of terrain that we’ve got mapped out, we’re sure that people will go away with a new hunger for adventure.”
