Pricing For Honda Africa Twin Revealed


MSN reports the price tag for Honda’s CRF1000L Africa Twin was recently released, and people may be surprised when they look at the numbers. With the manual edition listed at $13,999, the ‘rally color’ upgrade for $14,299, and the dual-clutch automated manual transmission trim a mere $14,999; the Africa Twin has a lower price than that of most its competitors. It is set to release in the early spring of 2016.

The automatic dual-clutch transmission brings three differing levels of sport mode, and G button which is quite useful for clutch engagement, as well as off-roading control, and all-around performance. As well, it has index-style gear buttons placed on the left grip, which allows riders to switch gears with their index finger and thumb; much like a mountain bike. A gear, which can be operated by your foot, can be added as an accessory.

Definitely something for those with a flare for adventure, the Africa Twin also features a 998cc SOHC parallel twin engine. With front suspension at 9.1 inches, as well as 8.7 inches behind; not to mention the compact battery/engine/oil placement, skid plate, and rubber-mounted handlebars – these features provide everything that is needed for someone who is heading down on the road less travelled. It also has a 21-inch front wheel, and 18-inch rear wheel to further enhance one’s off-roading experience.

To help with the transition of on/off-roading, the Africa Twin provides a remote adjustment dial for rear preload, and DCT models offer the rider options from 80 groupings of traction control, ABS, and gear behavior. A perfect machine for those who love to explore, and spend long days outside.
