Thumbs up Africa twin rally edition!

Honda Japan released the prototype 2016 Honda Africa Twin Rally Edition. The model appears to have a larger fuel capacity, skid plate, Termignoni race exhaust, and bar risers among items that the astute enthusiast might point out from the photos.

Whether or not it makes it to production, that IS the question?

I hope to have my red standard the first week of June. The more I read about it, the more I like it.

Cycle Barn quoted me the third week of May?! IF I was able to get one, it'd be the Rally bike as my first choice. I wouldn't expect Honda to move it ahead for at least another year. They are notoriously slow to implement new models...

It's a very nicely executed bike, especially the rally edition. One of the first adventure bikes lately that seems to put dirt capability in front of street.

Too bad the US got the boring colorways this year.
