You’ve probably seen and heard so much about Honda’s true touring concept in the last 12 months that you’re tired of it. Don’t be. They say true adventure in quite a bike, and Honda is true to their words. This is one of the most impressive big adventure bikes you could ever want to ride off-road. It took three and a half years from the initial idea of bringing back the much-loved Africa Twin Adventure DCT, to production, but every one of those hard-earned months has been worth it. The dual-clutch transmission is immediately obvious because the engine case sticks out slightly further, and there’s no clutch lever. Just a parking brake in its place tucked away behind the handguards. To use the DCT you simply start the bike, push the right-hand button into D for drive, or S for Sport, and engage one of the three new sports settings. S1 is the entry-level to sports mode, then there’s S2 which hangs on to gears longer, and S3 which is used for more extreme sports riding and hangs onto gears till the redline. Add in a G button for improved connection with the bike and the throttle when off-road, and the hill climb and descent technology which changes gear depending on the ascent or incline.
