Video: Marquez rides the new Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin

Honda has released a new video of Marc Marquez riding the new Africa twin alongside Spanish Dakar rider John Berreda.

The duo are seen to be giving the new machine a thorough work out, taking to the dirt in Northern Spain.

The two-time world Moto GP champion comments on the various aspects of the new machine, describing the riding position and how good it is off road.

The new CRF1000L Africa Twin has been designed from the ground up using a brand new 998cc parallel-twin engine and has been built on the attributes of the old XRV750 Africa Twin that it is shares a name with. 

All that’s left now is for Honda to announce a release date for the new variant of the iconic model.
