2016 to Present Africa Twin

Honda released the CRF1000L Africa Twin in 2016. The bike has gotten universally great reviews and was even the best-selling motorcycle over in the UK if memory serves. It sounds like just the right amounts of capable on/off road, character and reliability. Basically everything you want from a motorcycle. Not sure when I’ll be in the mood for a real ADV bike—as I type this I’m still on a retro bike kick. Next time I’m looking for one, though, I’m hoping to pick up one of these.

I really like the color scheme on the one below, but it’s got that silly automatic transmission Honda seems to like to stick in their bikes. I’ve never figured out why color seems to be tied to the transmission type of the bike with Honda, but there it is.
