Ex-showroom Price (New Delhi)

Honda's Africa Twin is a tribute to one of Honda's most iconic motorcycles, the NXR750 Africa Twin, the legendary Dakar winning bike from the 80s. The CRF 1000L Africa Twin is sort of a swan song to bike although it does come with a 1084cc motor that makes 102hp and 105Nm of torque. The Africa Twin also comes with a DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) that is surprisingly accurate. All put together the Africa Twin is an ADV bike with the soul of a Dakar rally bike.
