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.

The bike

Overland Africa Twin

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:
