    Honda doesn’t currently have a what most adventure riders would consider a ‘proper’ mid size adventure bike since the 700 Transalp was discontinued in 2012. The closest they have is the CB500X which is really a road bike with an upright riding stance and longer legs.

    In an interview with Honda’s Africa Twin Project Leader, Kenji Morita, Mr Morita was asked about the new Africa Twin Adventure Sport, adventure bikes for shorter riders and whether there was any plan to release a mid sized adventure bike and he had some interesting things to say.

    Honda’s Kenji Morita.

    There seems a rather conspicuous gap between the CRF250 and CRF1000… surely there’s a market for something in between?

    Of course, we have heard the rumours and the voices asking for something between 250 and 1000cc, and we are thinking about filling that gap. And perhaps, yes, one day there will be something filling this gap in the Honda line up. At the moment, we are just, let’s say, thinking about it.

    The rumours of a smaller Africa Twin are getting stronger with Japanese magazines featuring information that the new ‘mid range’ bike will be 850cc
