Wanted to start a new thread and discuss the 2019 Honda Africa Twin. Honda has a new color scheme for base and adventure sports model.

From a user on instagram @attapirati

Blue with red and white accent for the base and behind it is the Adventure Sports model with a gray/silver theme.

Is it me or does that Adventure Sport look like its actually made in black and white? ... not just a black and white bike but like it was actually made before colour tvs... built with black and white pixels ....... real bike or "artists impression of"?

... big question is .... have they fixed the broken headlights yet? ;)

What's wrong with the headlights?

Nothing until you turn them on (look good off) - then they just look broken to me - ugly!

I'll always be looking for a way to upgrade / change / fix the lights to make them look "designed" rather than broke when on.

... at least put them one above the other if they arent going to go on together Honda :rolleyes:

But if that turns out to be my only complaint (other than price) I'll be happy - can't see it while I'm on it :D

If you want them both on you can get a controller for the high beam.
I like the halo around the second beam in regular use. It looks different.

Skene IQ-270 High Beam Controller

oooo never seen such a thing - cheers for the Skene tip.

Always a bit dubious about tweaking a bikes electrical systems... he he.. this will test how much I really don't like it :eek:

The installation looks pretty straightforward and deals with the cyclopean headlight issue you mentioned.
Please share if you do end up putting it on your bike. I considered it for more conspicuity but then decided I can live with the OEM look and my two Denali D4s blazing the trail. :)
