Is This Honda’s First Teaser Of The New 2020 Africa Twin?

Yeah, it totally is.

Saying that a rumor about Honda working on a new Africa Twin has been circulating is close to an understatement. For the past few months, everything the name “Africa Twin” popped up, the Internet lit up, ourselves included. More recently, our colleagues at Cycle World have uncovered that Honda is using a new nomenclature to identify the 2020 model year (SD09 over the current SD06), suggesting there’s, in fact, a new generation in the works. Well, it looks like Honda itself is finally starting to pave the way towards an unveiling.

Honda is teasing a new “True Adventure” model for 2020 which is expected to be a large Africa Twin displacing around 1100cc. Honda hasn’t mentioned when we can expect official details on the new 2020 Africa Twin ; considering the teaser didn’t even show the bike, Honda ’ s probably going to

Honda teases new Africa Twin in a teaser video, but doesn't reveal any details about what changes are due on the updated Honda Africa Twin .

While no motorcycle is shown in the promotional video, there are three very obvious clues that indicate that Honda is getting the teaser ball rolling for the new Africa Twin. First off, the video shows a path being drawn in the dirt, dragged across the gravel in a cloud of dust—the company is pointing to an off-road capable model, right? That’s a pretty obvious imagery. Then there’s a recurring focus on the word “adventure” (“True Adventure”, “The adventure is calling). Honda could have left it at that and we would already have enough to speculate on and to feed the rumor mill with.

But the company cemented our conviction with one last clue, the most obvious and irrefutable of them all: the font used to spell out “true adventure”. Now, if you’re familiar with the Africa Twin at all, you already know what you’re looking at. For those who aren’t as well versed in all things Twins as we ADV nerds are, what you are looking at is the very same font used in the Africa Twin logo displayed on the motorcycle’s fairing.

Honda Looking Into New Twin Spark Engine For the CRF250L Twice the spark, twice the fun. If there is one recurring theme with new motorcycles coming in 2020, it definitely is “emission reduction”. Whether it’s electric powertrains thriving or combustion engines facing new emission challenges, everyone is trying to reduce its footprint. One of the biggest reason for that is the looming Euro5 emission standards that will impose increasingly more stringent regulations, forcing manufacturers to review their lineups. It also encourages them to come up with new ideas and clever ways to meet the new standards.

We now know for sure that a new generation of the model is coming. What we have yet to learn is what form it will take. In fact, most of the information sources around the world have been able to garner point to Honda upsizing. The 2020 Africa Twin is expected to go from 1000 to a 1100cc (998 to 1080 to be specific) which would potentially clear a space for a mid-range, Ténéré-fighter version of the model.

The rumor of a new engine is also consistent with the arrival of the Euro5 emission standards. But how is Honda going to make a bigger engine more fuel-efficient? Patents published a few months ago suggest the company is working on a variable valve technology of its own, something other manufacturers have used to meet the new standards, including BMW. So it’s not farfetched to suppose the new Twin will be underlined by an entirely new VVT powertrain.
