The call of the wild. It’s hard to ignore it when you’re riding the Africa Twin. It’s a name
inseparable from the spirit of Dakar, on a bike that’s as impressive as the desert itself.
In 1986 the legendary NXR650 made its debut at the Dakar Rally and the dream of
winning the most demanding off-road race in the world came true. We went back and
did it again in ‘87, ‘88, and ’89, and the knowledge and experience we gained from
winning went into the original XRV650 Africa Twin which later became the now legendary
XRV750 Africa Twin. That same passion for racing and the philosophy of learning from
it continues to help us make all our production machines better. This is what we mean
when we say, ‘Made by Honda’ and, after four years of development, it’s at the very heart
of the new CRF1000L Africa Twin.
True to its roots, which are firmly embedded in Dakar history, the Africa Twin is also a
comfortable tourer as well as a practical commuter – but when you hear that call – it’s strong
and agile enough to take you across the more challenging terrain of roads less travelled.
True adventure awaits, go find it.
