By the end of the 1970s, the French motorcycle adventurer Thierry Sabine came with one of the greatest racing ideas motorsport has even known: the Paris-Dakar.
For the motorcycle competition, the event gathered the boldest riders and pushed manufacturers to develop some bikes that could put up with that intense rally. The Paris Dakar was a great endurance test for the manufacturers and their bikes, but also a powerful communication tool to support that new dual sport segment to the typical rider.

In the middle of the 1980s, the Honda Racing Corporation started working on a new bike that could bring success to the brand via the Paris Dakar which led to the birth of the NXR750V. This bike and its evolution the NXR800V permitted Honda and their riders to win 4 Paris Dakar in a row between 1986 and 1989.

Backed by this success, on the 20th of May 1988 Honda released the Africa Twin XRV650, presenting it in the same colors as the winning Rally bike in blue, white and red. The first version, RD03, featured a 647cc water-cooled V-twin producing 56hp, while its evolution, the RD04, had its engine bumped to 742cc now producing 62hp.

The 1990 Africa Twin RD04 we present to you here has about 49K kilometers and looks well preserved with its original paint and decals. Only few scratches can be found on the tank.
