Experience Adventure presented by Honda and Triumph
Motorcycle Live is pleased to once again present Experience Adventure, supported by Honda and Triumph, with clothing supplied by Bell Helmets and Fly. The adventure bike skills course will be designed to introduce riders to their first taste of adventure riding which will include tuition, on bike set-up, body positioning and balance across a number of testing terrains.
Participants are able to choose from a stunning range of machines from Honda and Triumph. Participation is completely free.
Available to ride from Honda, we have the Africa Twin (both DCT and Manual), the Africa Twin Adventure Sport (manual) and the CRF450L.
Honda’s definitive full-size adventure machine gets a comprehensive update for 2018, with Throttle By Wire, 3 riding modes, expanded Honda Selectable Torque Control parameters, more responsive power delivery and engaging engine sound. It’s also 2kg lighter and features several detail improvements to enhance the riding and owning experience.
A new version of Honda’s definitive full-size adventure machine is ready for Adventure Sports in 2018, with larger fuel tank for a range of over 500km, higher riding position, greater ground clearance, heated grips, extended fairing plus longer travel suspension. It also has Throttle By Wire with 3 riding modes, expanded Honda Selectable Torque Control parameters and revised intake and exhaust. The original Africa Twin’s 30th anniversary is celebrated with a unique paint scheme.
Using the CRF450R moto-crosser as a base, Honda’s new road-legal dual-purpose motorcycle has a tough, lightweight chassis built to find all the available grip, powered by an engine that delivers strong, usable power right from the bottom. Durable, high quality parts and long service intervals aim for a worry-free riding and ownership experience.
Triumph will have the Tiger 800, Tiger 800XCa and the Street Scrambler.
The Tiger 800 is without doubt one of Triumph’s best-loved motorcycles – and possibly the most critically acclaimed – with a bloodline originating from the first competition Tigers’ gold medals at the 1936 International Six Days Trial. This was the starting point for the longest-running adventure motorcycle story of them all, and that same spirit of adventure and quest for perfection is built into each and every Tiger today. The Tiger 800 Triple engine is more responsive, it has a shorter ratio first gear delivering improved off-road traction and all-road acceleration, up to six riding modes, and enhanced ergonomics for maximum adventure, every day.
The Tiger 800 XCa is tailor-made with a dedicated level of technology and equipment including TFT instruments and all-LED lighting, renowned accessibility and agility, as well as enhanced rider ergonomics, and premium finish and detailing. The result? You’re looking at a Tiger 800 XCa that is genuinely better in every way, on the road… but especially off it.
The Street Scrambler shares the same contemporary custom principles as the Street Twin, the Street Scrambler has the iconic Bonneville silhouette combined with clean lines, minimal bodywork, contemporary finishes and sleek fuel tank. The Street Scrambler has been designed to deliver a more purposeful and beautiful Scrambler style, with unique features and detailing.
