XRV 890 Africa Twin LEGEND
 

After a decade of unfulfilled hopes, AfricanQueens ends the wait for a worthy successor to Honda's most successful big-trail-bike with the introduction of the 'Legend'.
On occasion of our 20-year company anniversary we developed this modernised re-edition of the Africa Twin

The 'Twin' has always offered a reliable basis for customising to fit a variety of specialised assignments, whether as a trailbike, a café racer, as faithful companion for the world traveler or even as a rally machine. This is precisely why we are bringing her, the Legend, back to life in three different versions on this very, proven basis.

We have drawn all our knowledge and experience in racing and travel equipment into this project.
The core of the reworked and overhauled engine and frame of the Africa Twin is equipped with our best components and materials, which makes every Legend a fine limited edition bike, completed with roadworthy certification.
More powerful she has become ... lighter ... better suspensions she's got now ... known small weaknesses of the ancestor were remedied.
Of her famous dependability, she's lost non, and now shines in new splendor - and best in HRC colors.

The adventure stories around the Africa Twin are legendary ... And that is why our new Africa Twin series also bears the name:

„Legend”
