Handling And Riding

Honda CRF1000L Africa twin utilizes a steel semi-double cradle, dedicated from the CRF 450 Rally. The wheel size also same which has large 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wheels. Tyres of the bike are from Dunlop and have a thin 90/90 section at the front and 150/70 section at the rear end. The tyres setup makes the bike one of the off-road machines in India. It has a softly sprung Showa suspension and has a 230 mm front and a 220 mm rear control. An automatic gearbox is there to help in the situation of deactivating traction control and ABS for better operability experience. The level up mounting of airbox and intake makes the bike to cross some deep water crossings on the road.


The Honda strongly recommend maintenance by trained and equipped technician or by Honda workshops. The maintenance is necessary to keep the bike perform well throughout. We need to follow some precautionary steps as mentioned in the manual like place the bike on side-stand, allow the engine to idle for 2-3 minutes when start and stop, hold bike upfront on level grounds, and much more. It is advisable to inspect, clean, lubricate, and adjust drive chain on completion of respective km covered.


Bike performances amazingly well in providing better safety features. The bike has ABS control which is able to control the operability of the bike. The traction control system helps the bike to prevent the loss of tractions and goes well with soft spring Showa suspension.


Overall, the bike is super adventures and worth the price of Rs. 13.06 lakh (ex-showroom, India). It doesn’t have ride-by-wire throttle but the equipment setup is enough to perform an excellent off-road ability. So before making the purchase decision, just plan a test ride of Africa twin and get what is expected from the bike.
