Built for dirty business and with useful panniers, this Africa Twin is today’s bike of the day.

Seller says

“This one owner CRF1000L Africa Twin comes complete with ABS brakes, a 12-volt accessory socket and Givi Trekker panniers and top box and is also Datatagged. It also has a balance of Honda 24 month warranty and AA cover. Looks stunning in HRC Tricolour paintwork and fantastic value.”

MCN says

“The Africa Twin inspires confidence on the dirt immediately, regardless of your ability or off-road experience. Its physical size makes it a breath of fresh air in the current 1200+cc dominated adventure bike class; the parallel-twin motor making it both low and narrow. This, combined with the fuel tank ergonomics, means that when standing up the rider is able to get their weight forward over the front wheel while putting pressure through the footpegs to aid steering and grip – a vital asset when covering rough terrain. 

The Africa Twin boasts true globe-trotting credentials both on and off-road. It feels lightweight and is seriously frugal. This is one of the most impressive true adventure bikes you can buy, and a stunning return for the prestigious Africa Twin name.”
