I spoke to a dealer yesterday and he told me that a new Africa Twin will be presented this autumn, probably at the Milan Bike show in November. He was absolutely sure it will happen but has no details about the bike. He thinks the engine size will be about 800cc. I suspect this may be true as for months here in Italy the Transalp 700 has been on special offer and they have literally sold out. In europe it looks like the Transalp is effectively being replaced by the NC700X and the new Africa Twin. The NC700X has been very popular and the manual version has a delivery time of three to four months.
