Honda Africa Twin


FOUR MODELS OF Honda’s Africa Twin line will be offered in 2019, including updated Africa Twin Adventure Sports, both available with manual shift or Honda’s Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). The Africa Twin Adventure Sports’ styling is less minimalist than that of the Africa Twin; the dual headlights are shared but the Adventure Sports has a larger fairing matched with an 80mm taller screen to offer greater wind protection. It also comes standard with heated grips and a 12V accessory socket, facilitating longer tours in wide-ranging conditions, plus a larger sump guard and front light bars.

Pricing starts at $13,599 for the original, CRF1000L Africa Twin with manual shift. For DCT, add $800 (CRF1000L DCT $14,399). The newer CRF1000L2 Africa Twin Adventure Sports starts at $15,099 and rises to $15,899 for models with DCT.
