New Africa Twin app allows you to take your very own Africa Twin anywhere imaginable and more

Honda Motor Europe has announced a unique new way to view the new CRF1000L Africa Twin - courtesy of a new Honda Africa Twin app.

The app uses CGI, advanced 3D modelling and augmented reality to allow you to use your smartphone to take a close-up look at the Africa Twin (both ABS and DCT) in the three colours available, namely CRF Rally, Africa Twin Tricolor and Matte Ballistic Black Metallic.

Using the rear camera on your device, the app then allows you to take your newly-created, virtual Africa Twin anywhere in your own environment - your garage, your desktop and even your living room.

The app, which is pretty impressive also allows users to view the Africa Twin virtually from any angle and at any size, change the model type and colour, to check the differences and choose your preference, look at key features by swiping at the bottom of the screen, as well as to "place" the Africa Twin in your own environment by clicking the on-screen eye icon as you point your device, and even resize your virtual Africa Twin, and even capture the image and share it through social media.

Already in use at Honda dealerships across Europe, the app allows those looking to preaches a new bike to see all the different versions of the all-new Africa Twin and can be found on the iOS app store here and Google Play store here respectively.
