Hello everyone, we are at the Xma 2019 exhibition taking place in Milan, Italy. Right next to me this is a new car just announced by Honda on the show today - the Africa Twin 2020 version with a completely new 1100cc engine instead of the 1000cc as the previous version.
According to the manufacturer, according to the chief architect of the car, this new engine will improve the torque by 7%, improve the power by 6%, more powerful. But the beauty of it is that it is a very special vehicle to go abroad, we will receive its DNA abroad from tires, wheels, shock absorbers, long journeys, etc.
The second thing that could be better is the gearbox system, you see the 2-cylinder engine in line and using the dual-clutch gearbox system, like cars without having to squeeze the clutch. number, it is like a scooter. Or in place when you are at number 2, for example, it is already waiting to be on the number 3 or number 1, meaning that when you rev up, accelerate, up the number, it will also automatically shift up.
And the plus and minus buttons on the handle, why the advantage over the cars that have to squeeze the clutch is that I will focus on driving more, focus on braking, more time for driving the car. Another thing is when you often have to go abroad slowly, if you go so slowly, but you have to squeeze the clutch, it is very easy to fall, but this scooter never falls, stalling even stops, which is a great thing for a gearbox. Dual clutch that integrated on this vehicle.
The flooded technology is also equipped with a 6-way acceleration sensor, torque control, cornering abs, etc.These are the latest technologies on the 2020 Africa Twin, let's take a look at its design as How's it?
Actually the 2020 version still retains a lot of old features, the lamp cluster has changed a bit but still has a youthful look. Shadow shock absorbers very long journey, Nisin brakes. Next we will see is the paint, stamps are also renewed. The same type of input as the VFR 1200 that Honda launched a long time ago, a very large car that can enter numbers with the push of a button like a car. This series of buttons, features it will appear on the screen, the screen is very large.
The rear end is quite compact, because when traveling abroad, a rear storage box is required. This is also a new product has just been launched, this car has added protection for the head mask, engine protection. The models on that stage look even more beautiful. Although today is only for journalists but very crowded.
There are cars with both chassis protection, yellow shock absorbers. The aluminum container version, this version is beautiful in that there are yellow wheels, beautiful red and white paint. This version has branded, electrically controlled at the front of the car. In short, the large block always has a very nice, very nice version.
