HONDA AFRICA TWIN OVERVIEW

The explosion of the big-bore adventure bike segment over the past decade has brought us new releases from nearly every major manufacturer, but few bikes caused the stir that Honda’s CRF1000L Africa Twin did upon its announcement and introduction in 2016.

Has there ever been a better time to be an adventure-bike rider? And has taking your next vacation on an adventure bike ever looked better either? Honda’s Africa Twin lineup is so good it’s an embarrassment of riches. Technology. Comfort. Reliability you can count on, come rain or shine, continent-crossing journeys or weekend getaways. Features like cruise control and touch-screen technology make it a great tourer, while its rugged construction and off-road refinements let you wander from horizon to horizon on the path less travelled.

And best of all, there are four different Africa Twins to choose from. Our standard Africa Twin is a great choice for serious off-road enthusiasts. For long-distance adventure touring, check out our two Africa Twin Adventure Sports ES models: They offer special features like electronically controlled suspension, an adjustable windscreen, larger fuel tank, heated grips, tubeless tires, and more. Plus, both are available with either a manual transmission or Honda’s automatic DCT transmission, one of the best technical-riding advantages ever.

In city traffic it’s about as effortless to ride as an Activa and it is just as comfortable sustaining high speeds on the highway. Triple-digit speeds come easily to the Africa Twin and it’s at home maintaining 120-140kph. It’s a mountain goat. It’s incredible how much the Africa Twin feels like a dirt bike, especially considering it’s a 243kg motorcycle in an XXL-sized format.

The base model is already priced higher than such competitors as the lighter and equally powerful KTM-790-Adventure R, and the Adventure-Sports-ES exceeds the price of a loaded BMW F850GS and flirts with certain trims of the KTM-1290-Super-Adventure. The Africa Twin has proven to have a personality all its own, however, and that has kept owners coming back to it for years. The 2020 CRF1100L looks to be a motorcycle more than worthy of carrying the iconic Africa Twin nameplate forward.
