Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin Specs
“Survivor, champion, icon. The Africa Twin was designed to withstand thousands of miles of desert and dirt – now it’s returning to do it all over again.”
“It’s been a long wait. But—trust us—it’s worth it. The all-new Honda Africa Twin is the machine that will let you wander wherever your adventures take you. The 998cc parallel twin uses Honda’s exclusive four-valve Unicam® cylinder-head design for smooth, tractable power.
