For me, the words “Africa Twin” have always had an elusive appeal. Honda’s amazing, 750cc, Paris-Dakar-winning adventure bike was offered between 1989 and 2003 but never in the United States. A few made it to these shores under the wings of independent importers but they remain a rare find.
The original 650 variant of the Africa Twin was released in 1988. To mark its 25th birthday Expedition Portal has published a post about the bike.
