Adventurers or touring riders looking for a little less stress on the next expedition might want to check out Honda's ADV machines, both powered by a 998cc, SOHC, eight-valve, parallel-twin engine. You'll find automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) as an option on the base-model Africa Twin as well as the more premium Africa Twin Adventure Sports trim, which gets a bigger fuel tank and upgraded suspension. Big Red touts "consistent, rapid, seamless gear changes" from the now-familiar system, which deploys two clutches—one for start-up and first, third, and fifth gears, the other for second, fourth, and sixth—each independently controlled by its own circuit. You can also swap between three modes; Manual for when you want to shift (with the handlebar triggers), Automatic Drive mode for longer hauls, or Automatic Sport when you want to wick it up in the canyons. Off-road functionality gets a boost with the addition of a G switch, which reduces clutch slip during gear changes. The Africa Twin DCT retails for $14,399, while the up-spec Adventure Sports rings in at $15,899.
