Honda’s flagship Africa Twin ADV tourer motorcycle or XRV650 made its mark initially in 1988, which received major overhauls in a span of more than a decade successfully and ended in 2003 rechristened as the XRV750. And now rumour mills are rife in Japan and as per sources, Honda in 2020 will launch the next-generation Honda Africa Twin with key updates and will replace the present generation Africa Twin which was launched in 2016.

In compliance with the Euro-V emission standards, the new Honda Africa Twin model or CRF1000L engine power will be boosted by a 1,080cc motor that can churn an additional 5hp of power with support from a higher capacity fuel tank of 20-litres along with an updated dual-clutch transmission. The next-gen Africa Twin most likely will feature a TFT metre console as well.

The existing 998cc parallel-twin motor churns 89hp at 7,500rpm and 93.1Nm at 6,000rpm with a tank capacity of 18 litres.

The 2018 Honda Africa Twin upgrade included four types of ride modes, seven-level traction control system and ride-by-wire throttle. The upcoming 2020 Honda Africa Twin will be pitted against updated ADV motorcycles such as the BMW GS and Ducati Multistrada and also keeping in mind the Euro-V emission standards which will come into effect globally in January 2020.
