AltRider Launches New Line of Accessories for the Africa Twin

A full line of new products and accessories for Honda's latest Adventure Bike.

Published on 08.18.2016

AltRider, manufacturer of premium accessories for adventure, dual sport and street motorcycles, has launched a full line of accessories for the Africa Twin.

“It’s been a long time since we’ve been this excited about a new adventure bike,” says AltRider President Jeremy LeBreton. “Honda really designed this machine to venture off the beaten path, and that spirit of discovery and exploration is at the root of what we adventure motorcyclists are all about.”

Altrider accessories for the Africa Twin - Skid Plate
The AltRider skid plate was given a smooth bottom design for max clearance and easy maneuvering over obstacles. Four mounting points on the frame rails provide a strong platform.

AltRider is known in the adventure motorcycling world for their high quality American-made protection parts. Their line of accessories for the Africa Twin were designed and developed with the goal of providing as much protection as possible without compromising performance or style.

Altrider accessories for the Africa Twin - Crash Bars
AltRider’s crash bars bolt directly to the frame (rather than with a clamp as the OE bars do) and maintain the narrow maneuverable profile of the Africa Twin.


Owners can protect their new bike from impact and road debris with AltRider’s lineup of protection accessories for the Africa Twin, including the Skid Plate, Crash Bars, Headlight Guards, Radiator Guards and Rear Brake Reservoir Guard. AltRider’s revolutionary and patent-pending DualControl Brake System gives riders better control of the rear brake in both standing and sitting position, while the Side Stand Enlarger will keep the bike upright when parked on softer surfaces.

The AltRider Hemisphere line of soft luggage and SYNCH Dry Bags give riders more space for gear and supplies, and the Rear and Pillion Luggage Racks allow riders to pack their Africa Twin down for the long haul.

Pillion rack increases carrying capacity with a larger platform area and numerous mounting holes to attach dry bags or other luggage.

“This bike is a great platform for development,” LeBreton continues. “Our parts are designed for maximum strength and coverage, whether you intend to commute to and from work or do an impromptu hill climb. Our goal is to empower riders to go out and explore with their motorcycle, and our accessories help to do that.”

AltRider accessories for the Africa Twin are available through authorized AltRider dealers and online.
