Honda Africa Twin XRV 750 RD07A 1996-2003

In 1996 the Africa Twin was modified to the XRV 750 RD07A. The chassis, engine and the majority of the components remained the same as the previous RD07 launched in 1993, but the fairing was redesigned. This meant a new look headlight surround and a higher cowl for more protection. The seat was also reshaped for extra comfort.
