Honda Africa Twin Overview
All-terrain motorcycles have always been known for their ability to easily conquer the unexplored paths, muddy topography and long water patches. Honda has come out with an all-new CRF1000L Africa Twin motorcycle, which is piloted with a ton of technological features. One can also upgrade to the higher end of this motorcycle, which comes with automatic Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT). The Africa-Twin is a big wheel, go-anywhere motorcycle that’ll urge you to push it to the limits. With a price tag varying from Rs. 12.9-16 Lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi), the motorcycle is well proportioned and comfortable, and the low seat makes it feel lower than it actually is. The performance might not be as satisfying as a 1200 cc all-terrain motorcycle, but still manages to be pretty quick, pretty smooth and really addictive.
Honda Africa Twin Engine & Transmission
When it comes to styling quotient of the Honda Africa Twin 2019, the placement of the LCD instrument panel designed in rally style triggers a nostalgic of the victorious Dakar machines and displays every piece of information clearly. The LCD instrument console comprises every bit of information like tachometer, riding modes, fuel, gear position, HSTC, odometer, speedometer, clock, ABS Indicator and trip meter. The Africa Twin features dual headlights for better illumination on the road and other features which comprise a combination of 21-inch wire-spoke wheels in the front and 18-inch at the rear, a split seat for best comfort and a tall-set exhaust.
Honda Africa Twin Braking & Safety

Honda Africa Twin Mileage
The fuel tank on the CRF1000L has a good capacity of 18.8 L and comes loaded with a bunch of cool features that include a multi-level traction control system with anti-lock braking system, and a complete digital and informative instrument cluster that even features clock and reminds the customer for the service due.
Honda Africa Twin Performance and Handling
The brakes and wheels on the Africa Twin are perfectly tuned for tight and twisty roads, but the bike is held back by lack of fun and feel while cornering. If you are going for the DCT variant, then you just kick back on the motorcycle and let the computer do rest of the stuff. Talking about the genetic purpose of the bike, which is off-roading, the suspension of the bike does not shy away from the hard work to be performed; in fact, the Africa Twin is a perfect predator for off-road terrains.
