Hanover/Korbach, August 28, 2017. Interim result of the MOTORRAD long duration test on the Honda Africa Twin, which was reintroduced last year: After 39,000 of a targeted 50,000 test kilometers, the editors came to their initial conclusion. The ContiTrailAttack 2, which provided impressive grip over 16,000 kilometers, made a positive impression with regard to the chassis.
“The Conti tire immediately instills you with a lot of confidence. The Trail Attack 2 is characterized by first-class feedback and neutral handling. The tire also cuts an excellent figure in terms of handling and gives a positive feel for the road even in extreme banking,” praises the test crew. Of a total of nine alternative tires presented for the long-distance motorbike, only three received the “Practical Pick” rating – one of which went to the perennial hit from Korbach.
The classic racing tire, ContiRoadAttack 2 CR, also delivered a faultless performance. The 18” sport tire totally impressed the team from Fastbike magazine for the September to November 2017 issue: “The ContiRoadAttack 2CR has its established place on the classic race starting grid, as it deserves: Deep grip, good feedback and effortless handling give many 18-inch classics the road performance of a current superbike.”
