Honda Africa Twin XRV 750 RD07 1993-1995

In 1993 we saw the introduction of the Honda Africa Twin XVR 750 RD07. The newly designed chassis and positioning of the fuel tank meant that the centre of gravity was lower. This greatly improved the slow and fast handling of the motorcycle. Cosmetically all the fairings had been redesigned and the seat was lowered to offer greater comfort and protection.
