Honda CRF 1000L

Honda CRF 1000L Overview

Creating a buzz at the Auto Expo 2016, Honda CRF 1000L also known as the African Twin, drew onlookers with its dynamic chassis and exquisite charm. Honda CRF 1000L had its baptism by fire at the most trying of races, the Dakar Rally, and presents itself in two variants that run on 998cc twin petrol drive trains in consonance with a six speed manual transmission. Honda CRF 1000L has been specially made as an adventure bike with specifications tuned to meet that requirement. The Africa Twin rides on 21 inches and 18 inches spoke wheels at the front and rear donning 90/90-21 and 150/70-18 tyre sizes, and its 18.8 litres fuel tank can take the bike to a distance of 400 Km. To ensure safety, the wheels are studded with dual radial mount Nissin four piston brake callipers, 310mm of floating disc brakes at the front, and a 256mm single disc brake at the rear. Moreover, to buttress its all terrain riding capability, Honda CRF 1000L has been provided with ABS and traction control functions having various modes suited for different conditions – operable through physical switches. The traction control function comes in four modes –Off and 1-3, wherein level 1 allows for a sporty ride (read sliding as well) followed by a slight spinning option in level 2. The last level does not allow much leverage, thereby keeping things within control all the time. The visor at the front provides effective aerodynamics but at the same time shields the rider from wind shear. Dual headlights at the front level the beam of light to illuminate the road ahead and a height adjustable seat (870mm as standard) provides adequate cushion and support. Honda CRF 1000L competes against BMW RG1200 GS, Ducati Multistrada 1200, and Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200, and derives its design cues from Honda’s CRF range of bikes. The high point of this bike is its tall and slender body, which is so much in contrast with its bulky competitors. Besides, to cushion shocks emanating from the ground, Honda CRF 1000L carries 45mm of fully adjustable telescopic forks at the front and a fully adjustable monoshock suspension at the rear capable of damping, rebound and preload. Overall, Honda CRF 1000L is meant for adventure freaks who would want their bikes to remain steady on off-roads garnering high power whenever needed.
