You may not have even seen the Africa Twin you have on order from your local Honda dealer and it seems as though much if not all of Canada’s allotment of the big new adventure bike have been spoken for, you can however start planning your aftermarket goodies. If a recent ride on a little Honda CB500X with an aftermarket Hindle pipe is any indication of the improvement to the visceral feel of a motorcycle is any indication, putting some brand of aftermarket pipe would do similar wonderful things to the Africa Twin’s sound system. Akrapovic is out of the gate with titanium slip on system. Attempting to make their point the company claims:
Akrapovič’s sound engineers have created a deeper more enriching sound for the Slip-On Line, which uses the best characteristics of the Honda’s 270° twin-cylinder engine. Enhancing the engine’s pulsating beat, the Slip-On Line will deliver a rewarding and enjoyable feeling no matter what landscape the rider is tackling. This beautiful and rewarding exhaust is a simple plug-and-play easy installation – without any need for remapping – and comes with full instructions.
You had us at “beautiful and rewarding” but really sold it with “plug and play”.
