Honda Australia Announce Africa Twin Variants And Details
Honda has built on the Africa Twin‰ЫЄs strengths and its success to offer three variants with extensive updates for 2018.
Honda Australia has announce pricing for the anticipated 2018 Africa Twin variants.

Beginning with the the Africa Twin Manual with ABS, (CRF1000L) available for an MLP of $17,499, the Africa Twin 'Adventure Sports' Manual with ABS, (CRF1000AL2) available for $19,499 MLP and the Africa Twin 'Adventure Sports' DCT with ABS, (CRF1000DL2) available for $19,999 MLP.

Honda has built on the Africa Twin‰ЫЄs strengths and its success to offer three variants with extensive updates for 2018.

All three variants available in Australia offer improved features like the addition of Throttle-By-Wire with three riding modes plus a User mode, expanded Honda Selectable Torque Control parameters and revised intake and exhaust for stronger mid-range response.

Also new: front and rear spoked wheels constructed from stainless steel and a host of detail upgrades to both Manual Transmission (MT) and Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) options that enhance the riding and owning experience.
Honda Australia Announce Africa Twin Variants And Details
All three variants are scheduled for arrival into Honda dealerships around Australia in the coming weeks.
The 2018 generation of Africa Twin is a worthy successor to the original and very much the ‰ЫчGo Anywhere‰ЫЄ machine it promises to be.

The new ‰ЫчAdventure Sports‰ЫЄ variants further extend the platform into uncompromising long-range off-road territory. Side-by-side with the CRF1000L standard model, the Africa Twin ‰ЫчAdventure Sports‰ЫЄ is obviously taller with a flatter seat profile and more upright riding position. The fairing and screen offer more wind protection and a large sump guard and side pipe fully protect the machine.

The fuel tank is 5.4 litres bigger than the CRF1000L Africa Twin itself, and offers longer travel suspension, heated grips, an AC charging socket and extra-large skid plate and extended fairing with protective cowl bar.

The ‰ЫчAdventure Sports‰ЫЄ models are designed to offer long-distance riders an ultimately elevated adventure touring experience.

All three variants are scheduled for arrival into Honda dealerships around Australia in the coming weeks.

The CRF1000L Africa Twin will be available in Matte Ballistic Black Metallic, Pearl Glare White (Tricolor) and Grand Prix Red (Team HRC Rally colour)

The new ‰ЫчAdventure Sports‰ЫЄ variants are available in one 30th anniversary Tricolore paint scheme to celebrate the XRV650‰ЫЄs launch in 1988.
