A fresher colour featuring Matt Ballistic Black Metallic for the Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin to complement the existing color palette available to the public. The new color would further entice the visual appearance of the Africa Twin by providing a subtle yet stylish outlook.
On the mechanical front, the Africa Twin continue to be powered by a 998cc liquid-cooled four-stroke, parallel twin engine which delivers a peak power of 70kw @ 7,500rpm with 99Nm torque @6,000rpm. Bore and stroke are set at 92 x 75.1mm, with a compression ratio of 10.0:1.
Much of its phenomenal off-roading adventure capability has been left untouched as it still features a sturdy bodywork in a lightweight form providing riders with confidence on those long, arduous journey.
The Honda Africa Twin is available in four options. Standard type is offered in both Manual Transmission and Honda’s DCT which will feature the latest Matt Ballistic Black Metallic colour. While the Adventure Sports which also be offered in Manual Transmission and DCT still come in the Tricolor colour option.
Prospective buyers are welcome to view for themselves the new interesting color scheme at Honda Big Wing Showroom.
Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin
Legendary on/off-road Adventure Sport
A touring bike that makes long-distance travels pleasant and comfortable, while making it possible to detour onto dirt roads or rough terrain.
The new Africa Twin delivers nearly 1.5-times the power output of its predecessor, the original Africa Twin, while maintaining the same size and proportions. A significant upgrade to the 998cc Liquid-cooled, 4 stroke, OHC is the new Throttle By Wire (TBW) system, which expands the choices available to the rider to manage engine output and rear wheel traction to suit different riding conditions. The system features 7 Levels – from Level 1, for aggressive riding off-road on block pattern tyres, to Level 7 for maximum sense of security on slippery, wet tarmac.
Alongside the enhanced power delivery, the CRF1000L Africa Twin now comes with new intake design and exhaust to aid mid-range response, lighter balance shaft weight, new lithium-ion battery that saves 2.3kg and enhances durability, as well as Assist/slipper clutch that helps upshifts and downshifts.
Also new is an extended range of Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) input setting that ensures a sense of security in wide-ranging situations.
The unique Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) features super-fast, seamless gear changes in Manual Transmission (MT) or Automatic D mode. D mode which is ideal for city and highway riding offers the best balance of fuel economy and comfort whilst S mode gives three different, sportier shift patterns to choose from. Addition of the G button allows the rider to modify the control of the clutch system to give a more direct drive in any riding mode.
The CRF1000L Africa Twin is available in Grand Prix Red (Team HRC Rally colour) and Pearl Glare White (Tricolor) for Adventure Sports.
