This past week, Honda conducted the opening leg of its ‘Africa Twin True Adventure Camp’ close to the Damdama Lake in Haryana. The event included theoretical and practical sessions and was attended by 20 riders who were trained on the basics of off-road riding by Vijay Parmar, president, Himalayan Motorsport Association.
The camp will soon be conducted in Mumbai, Bangalore and Kochi, with other cities across the country to be added to the calendar, soon. The intention behind the camp is to help Africa Twin owners grasp a better understanding of their motorcycle’s Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) and four riding modes – Tour, Urban, Gravel and User.
The Africa Twin is powered by a 999.11cc twin-cylinder engine that produces 88.91hp and 93.1Nm of torque. However, rumour has it that that there’s a larger-displacement, more powerful iteration in the works that we could see in the market sometime next year. To read about what we think of the current-gen Africa Twin, head here.
Thus, Honda joins other big adventure-bike manufacturers like BMW and Triumph in introducing an event that helps customers better understand and use their motorcycles.
