Have you just purchased a brand new Honda Africa Twin and now live in constant fear that it might be stolen?
You are not alone! Sadly, due to its high price tag and market demand on the secondary market, the iconic Africa Twin has become a prime target for bike thieves across Europe and Worldwide. We often read stories of bikes being stolen even during quick stops at gas stations or while parked outside overnight.
Unfortunately, increasingly aggressive and organised thieves make motorcycle security a prime concern for any biker.
However, you can make their life harder and fight back by making your motorcycle as secure as possible. Remember, bike thieves will prefer an easy target over a well-guarded bike.
Keep reading our article and discover how EasyBlock anti-theft wheel lock for Africa Twin can help you protect your bike every time you park.
The Africa Twin Market
Thirty years after its launch, this legendary adventure bike still fascinates hard-core adventure and weekend riders.
Honda has sold more than 87,000 units of this model worldwide since its relaunch in 2016, and the latest model is gaining even more attention with its aggressive design and compact style coupled with an even sharper off-road focus. The versatility and easy handling for its category makes it a favourite among both adventure and urban riders.
Africa Twin thefts
Unfortunately, its high price tag and the growing demand for spare parts make it a sought-after model for any motorcycle thief.
These motorcycles are often broken for parts and sold online by organised networks, which continues to be a growing trend given current global supply chain issues when finding brand new parts is very challenging.
Another common scenario is that the motorcycle is shipped abroad via land or sea and resold in a different market shortly after being stolen.
Some technical difficulties
As an experienced biker knows, the more, the better when it comes to motorcycle security: Alarm, GPS Tracker, and some type of mechanical anti-theft device are a must.
However, some of the main features that make the Honda Africa Twin 1100cc so sexy can become a problem when protecting it, especially on the go.
This iconic element that allows the Africa Twin to cope with the most challenging road and off-road conditions can become quite a pain when using a heavy-duty chain.
If you own an Africa Twin, you will surely be familiar with the irritating feeling of trying to put a chain through the wheel's spokes.
No Under Seat Storage
Most large motorcycles don't have any under-seat or built-in storage space, making it a bit complex to carry a chain or a D-lock with you. You could use some of your top box space up, but that isn't always an option, especially if you don't have one.
