Honda announce prices for 2016 Africa Twin

Published: 28 November 2015

Honda UK have announced pricing and final specification for the eagerly-awaited CRF1000L Africa Twin, which will be launched in early December (see the full first ride report in the December 9 issue of MCN).

Two variants of the latest incarnation of Honda’s legendary adventure bike will be available.  At £10,499, the ABS model comes with switchable ABS at the rear wheel.  Africa Twin will also be offered in Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) trim at £11,299.  Both models benefit from multi-mode Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), which enables the rider to choose the level of rear wheel spin and ABS intervention. 

Competitive finance options are available for both Africa Twin variants, with payments as attractive as £115 per month on PCP* for the ABS model.

The DCT model features an all-new version of Honda’s unique transmission system.  In ‘S’ mode, three levels of sports performance, with swifter downshifts and the ability to hold a higher or lower gear, make it possible for the rider to tailor gearbox response to their preferred riding style.

The DCT system also operates with ‘adaptive clutch capability control’ giving a natural, feathered clutch feel at low speed.  Another feature of the DCT evolution on Africa Twin, delivering essential off-road performance, is a new ‘G’ mode.  At the touch of a button, the clutch system is altered to give a more direct drive.

An exclusive aspect of the Africa Twin DCT system, enhancing its adventure capability, is incline detection.  This adapts the gear shift pattern depending on the grade of any incline, to provide optimum control. 

2016 marks the 30th anniversary of the first of four consecutive Paris-Dakar wins for the original Africa Twin.  To celebrate the launch of its successor, coinciding with this milestone, Honda is offering a limited edition, Africa Twin branded TripMaster and 80-page heritage book for the first 350 pre-order customers.
