2018 Honda Africa twin adventure sport For Sale

Post by Lee950 » Sat Sep 15, 2018 9:45 am

I bought this and it was delivered on thursday (Yes 2 days ago!) I got it to modify to use in some desert roadbook rallys but after riding on the road and looking at what is needed to get it ready for rallys I think I am best to stick with the 950 ktm I already have.
It is still on E bay the honda dealer I bought it off have not removed it yet but it is as in the pictures I have only done about 10 miles on it on dry roads, It was a demo bike and comes with 18 month's left of the Honda warranty. Details are the same as in the E bay ad but the price is £10,000 no daft offers!

You should have had a longer test ride before buying

Have you asked the dealer if they will take it back at 10k?

Best of luck mate.

I made some progress with the bike yesterday, if all else fails read the manual :roll: Changed the torque control, power, and engine breaking settings and turned the rear abs off so now I can ride how i want to without the ecu cutting in and spoiling the fun.

I and it seems others saw the 3 screws on the side of the fairing thinking it was for easy access to the air filters instead of taking the fairing off like you have to on the 16/ 17, I found out when I got the bike I was wrong they just hold the badge on :( Very carefully I took it apart yesterday and even with my short fuse managed to get to the filter and re assamble without breaking anything, not quite the nightmare I was expecting :D

Also I can see a way of getting a road book holder and Ico on the bike without major mods, I will only be able to see the dash when on full lock but it is only much good as a mirror any way :lol:

Suppose what I am saying is I might be keeping it.
