Following tradition, the suspensions are all Showa: 45mm inverted fork, completely adjustable, in the front; Pro-Link single shock, also with compression and rebound adjusting in addition to the hydraulic preload, in the rear. With all this the Africa Twin is excellent on dirt roads and comfortable on paved roads, absorbing impacts without arm fatigue.
The weekend ends on Sunday evening offering a last feature of this CRF1000L Africa Twin: the dual LED headlights that well illuminate the way while giving an aggressive appearance to the bikealready slick body.
Returning to the question posed at the beginning of this article: does this motorbike deserve to be named Africa Twin? No doubt, the answer is Yes! We already know that Honda’s machines are high quality and with this last model the quality rose even higher. It was worth it to wait ten years for its return.
Pricing: from 13.200 euro.
