Are you ready for an Overland-prepped motorcycle? Some of you are saying “Duh, that’s called a bike and a backpack!” while others may be ready to get your checkbooks out. Regardless, the one I’m specifically talking about today is a collaboration between the Overland Expo and Honda. The two have teamed up to fully kit out an Africa Twin and then set off in search of adventure.
I’m a sucker for black and gold colorways, so excuse me a moment while I soak this one in… This is a 2021 Honda Africa Twin fitted with the dual-clutch gearbox. The modern Africa Twin is a revived version of an older bike Honda built from 1988 up to 2003. This latest version uses a 1,084-cc four-stroke twin and you can pair it with a six-speed manual or DCT. You can also choose between standard and Sport ES models. This one here is a Sport ES, which adds electronically controlled suspension, an adjustable windscreen, a larger fuel tank, heated grips, and tubeless tires.
Overland Expo has a slew of add-ons planned for this bike. From crash protection to luggage and lighting, you can check out the full list by clicking here. This seems like the perfect bike for such a build and we looking forward to seeing how it all looks (and performs) once everything is bolted on. For now, here’s a gallery of the bike as it sits:
