Honda’s Africa Twin models will be arriving onto the Australian market in the next few weeks and the company has announced pricing for the variants; with the Africa Twin Manual with ABS, (CRF1000L) available for an MLP of $17,499, the Africa Twin ‘Adventure Sports’ Manual with ABS, (CRF1000AL2) available for $19,499 MLP and the Africa Twin ‘Adventure Sports’ DCT with ABS, (CRF1000DL2) available for $19,999 MLP.
All three variants available in Australia offer improved features such as the addition of Throttle-By-Wire with three riding modes plus a User mode, expanded Honda Selectable Torque Control parameters and revised intake and exhaust for stronger mid-range response.
Also new are front and rear spoked wheels constructed from stainless steel and a host of detail upgrades to both Manual Transmission (MT) and Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) options that enhance the riding and owning experience.
Side-by-side with the CRF1000L standard model, the Africa Twin ‘Adventure Sports’ is taller with a flatter seat profile and more upright riding position. The fairing and screen offer more wind protection, and a large sump guard and side pipe fully protect the machine.
The fuel tank is 5.4 litres bigger than the CRF1000L Africa Twin itself, and offers longer travel suspension, heated grips, an AC charging socket and extra-large skid plate and extended fairing with protective cowl bar.
The CRF1000L Africa Twin will be available in Matte Ballistic Black Metallic, Pearl Glare White (Tricolor) and Grand Prix Red (Team HRC Rally colour).
The new ‘Adventure Sports’ variants are available in one 30th anniversary Tricolor paint scheme
