New Honda Africa Twin Rumored to Make Appearance in 2014

Honda Africa Twin is one of the iconic enduro-touring motorcycles of the last decades, and countless riders are still using it to cross continents and enjoy the freedom of the wilderness. However, Honda stopped making Africa Twins 10 years ago, in 2013, much to the dismay and anger of enduro lovers. 2013 might be the year of its reborn, if we are to believe Honda Italia's GM Vito Cicchetti.
Talking with the prestigious Gazzetta dello Sport, Cicchetti kind of spilled the beans as he mentioned a new Africa Twin is on the way, powered by a 2-cylinder engine. With no more info on such a glorious comeback, it's game on for speculations.

While many are surely waiting for a true dual-purpose machine, others fear that the new "Africana" will follow in the steps of the new Transalp and Varadero models, leaving the true enduro character behind and addressing more to the street riders.

Cicchetti also mentioned that the bike could make appearance at the 2014 Intermot in Cologne, Germany and it could be a 2015 model. There's plenty of time until next year's Intermot, and we hope Honda will stay on the enduro side... technically, they have no more real dual-purpose bikes aside the XR and quarter-liter CRF250L. And these have absolutely nothing to to with this bike.
