Touratech is outfitting an icon. When it debuted in 1989 as n XRV650, the Africa Twin garnered immediate respect. The XRV650 Africa Twin made its public debut after garnering four-consecutive Dakar Rally titles.
And when it was available for public consumption, the Africa Twin impressed due to its enduro nature, durability, quick handling, and upright-riding comfort.
The XRV650 and its predecessor – the XRV750 – continued this tradition until the model was discontinued in 2003. But for 2016, the Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin returns. The bike has already garnered much attention, and is expected to challenge the best of the most popular adventure-touring motorcycles on the market – from the KTM 1190 to the BMW R1200GSA to the new Ducati Multistrada 1200 Enduro. Add Touratech parts, and the Africa Twin becomes an even more capable challenger.
Touratech says that the complete range of accessories for the CRF 1000L Africa Twin will appear in the new Touratech catalog in January 2016 and will be available on the Touratech website soon.
