We have news from Europe about the Honda Africa Twin 2022 range. There isn’t much of a shake. However, Europe will get some changes for the Standard Africa Twin and Africa Twin Adventure Sports ES for 2022. In our experience, we see these changes in the United States in the same year or a year later. So this is new:

  1. In the DCT versions, the DCT has been reprogrammed for the lower two gears of the six-speed transmission. Honda claims improved operation at low speeds as well as from a standing start.

  1. The standard Africa Twin has an aluminum rear rack as standard.
  1. The Adventure Sports ES gets a new, lower windshield. The screen is significantly 4.3 inches shorter and adjustable in five positions. According to Honda, the lower screen improves the driver’s vision while offering a lot of protection.

  1. New graphics adorn each model. The standard Africa Twin receives Big Logo graphics with three color options. There is a new cracked terrain graphic on the AS ES and there are two colors to choose from. The subframe of the standard Africa Twin is now red, the aluminum side covers are black.
  1. As this is European release information, we don’t have US pricing or availability yet. In addition, we cannot confirm that the US models will receive these updates in 2022.
