2017 HONDA AFRICA TWIN

2017 HONDA MOTORCYCLES AFRICA TWIN

The “go anywhere” approach starts with the engine, which has to perform in off-road situations as well as on-road long-range touring, and all points in between.

For the CRF1000L Africa Twin’s chassis three key attributes were targeted: off-road performance, the comfort of a touring motorcycle and the everyday agility that makes for a great all-rounder or day-to-day commuter.

PRICE: P.O.A
