The "True Adventure" spirit of this award winning model expands with the introduction of the Africa Twin Adventure Sports.

For the final touch, we’ve given it special colours to celebrate and commemorate the bike’s 30th anniversary. It’s all looking good to go… are you ready?

THE HISTORY

FORGED FROM LEGEND

Some motorcycles encapsulate perfectly what an adventure motorcycle is all about. The original XRV650 Africa Twin—which debuted in 1989 after Honda's four successive wins in the Dakar Rally—was one such machine. Its go-anywhere ability, rugged durability, agile handling and all-day comfort made it the perfect partner with which to explore. And it helped to define a motorcycling segment that has now grown into one of the most popular worldwide. 

 

The NXR750V, a full HRC race machine, faced stiff competition in the grueling Dakar Rally through the late 1980s but won in 1986 and 1987 in the hands of Cyril Neveu, in '88 with Edi Orioli and finally in '89 piloted by Gilles Lalay. The road-going XRV650 Africa Twin was produced in 1988 and '89 by HRC in tribute to their efforts, and it laid the foundation of what would become a legendary machine. 

 

In late 1989 the XRV750 Africa Twin was launched and quickly became an adventure touring benchmark. It featured a 742cc, 6-valve liquid-cooled V-twin engine (producing 60 hp and 46.2 lb.-ft. torque), long-travel suspension, a large fuel tank, chain final drive, a 21-inch front wheel (widening off-road tire choice) and dual front disc brakes.
