2014 EICMA: 2015 Honda True Adventure Prototype Preview

The rumors leading up to EICMA were that Honda would introduce an all-new Africa Twin adventure bike at the Milan Show. Unfortunately, those rumors were only partially true, as Honda revealed prototype it calls the True Adventure.

Discuss this at our Honda Africa Twin Forum.

But make no mistake, the True Adventure is indeed the modern Africa Twin in spirit, if not in name. The prototype on display is caked in mud, barely covering its camo-pattern paint job, suggesting the True Adventure is actually off-road capable unlike the mainly road-going adventure-inspired models currently in vogue.

Honda says the True Adventure was influenced by its CRF450 Rally racer, though the engine is clearly a twin-cylinder powerplant instead of the 450’s single. It’s unclear, however, how big the engine is. Dakar rally rules restrict motorcycles to a maximum displacement of 450cc, but there’s nothing holding the True Adventure prototype to those regulations.

No further details were provided, which is a bit of a let down. We’ll have to wait a while longer for Honda to let us know if/when the True Adventure will head to production, and whether it will be called the Africa Twin.

Follow the rest of our 2014 EICMA Show coverage for more information on new 2015 motorcycle announcements.
