After a year of anticipation, and over 13 years after the old Honda Africa Twin was taken out of production, Honda has finally made a return to the adventure motorcycle market, and they’ve done it in grand fashion with the 2016 CRF1000L Africa Twin. —
The reviews for this bike are already pouring in. The Africa Twin looks great, sounds great, it’s comfortable, the engine has great power delivery, has a lot of character, and many more comments along those same lines being echoed by adventure motorcycle enthusiasts from all over the world.
The bike offers a 998cc parallel twin with a four-valve Unicam® cylinder-head design. It is offered with either a six-speed manual gearbox or a new DCT transmission with selectable on- and off-road modes, both versions have ABS standard with rear ABS on/off and Honda.
The only thing needed before taking this long anticipated new bike into the dirt, across rivers, and over highways, are the right accessories, and that is where Happy Trails Products excels. Among the most highly requested accessories for the Africa Twin, is a luggage rack capable of standing up to rigors and elements of off-road adventure touring just as well as the bike does.
Happy Trails Products Adventure Motorcycle is pleased to announce that the wait for the highest quality luggage rack on the market is over! The SU rack for the CRF1000L Africa Twin is now available for purchase here:
