Honda has launched the 2021 Africa Twin Adventure Sports in India at Rs 15.96 lakh (Manual) and Rs 17.50 lakh (DCT).
Significant price hike on both variants
New colour schemes
Mechanicals remain unchanged
The 2021 Africa Twin (Manual) now costs Rs 15.96 lakh as compared to the 2020 variant priced at Rs 15.35 lakh. The DCT variant, meanwhile, costs Rs 17.50 lakh which is a significant jump from the 2020 model year’s Rs 16.10 lakh price tag.
For 2021, the Africa Twin Adventure Sports is available in two new colour schemes – Darkness Black Metallic and Pearl Glare White Tricolor. Everything else remains the same as the model from last year.
To recap, last year the Africa Twin got an updated parallel-twin engine with an 86cc bump in displacement, taking it up to 1,084cc. The engine makes 99.2hp and 103Nm of torque, a notable bump from the previous-gen model’s 89hp/93.1Nm.
It also got an updated frame and swingarm that helped reduce the kerb weight. In its current form, the Adventure Sports weighs 249kg (DCT) and 239kg (manual), which is still higher than the competition, but it’s worth bearing in mind that the Adventure Sports gets a large 24.5-litre fuel tank.
Electronic tech includes a six-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU), wheelie control, cornering ABS, rear-lift control, DCT cornering detection and cornering lights; and the new 6.5-inch TFT display is compatible with Apple CarPlay. The Adventure Sports model offers additional features like tubeless wheels, a charging socket, a larger skid plate, an aluminium rear rack and the aforementioned larger fuel tank.
