Touratech Honda Africa Twin Parts Unveiled

Touratech Wastes No Time | Releases Honda Africa Twin PartsThe folks at Touratech wasted no time releasing a full lineup of accessories for the newest adventure motorcycle on the market – the Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin.

As stateside folks anticipated the release of the Africa Twin, which was finally confirmed in May, Touratech was already designing prototype parts and doing what they do best – testing these motorcycle accessories under extreme ADV conditions.

And now, after months of banging trees and rocks with an Africa Twin prepped with Touratech parts, the German-based company has launched an entire CRF1000L product lineup.

The Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin parts available from Touratech include:

  • Zega Pro and Zega Mundo pannier systems available in 31, 38 and 45Liter sizes
  • Zega Pro top case system in 25 and 38Liter sizes
  • Touratech Suspension
  • Aluminum luggage rack for securing a dry bag with straps
  • GPS mounting adapter
  • “Works” long-distance foot pegs
  • Handlebar risers
  • Stainless steel engine crash bars
  • Fairing crash bars
  • Large side-stand foot
  • Hand guards
  • Auxiliary lights
  • Headlight guard
  • Expedition Skid Plate
  • Expandable Tank Bag
  • DriRide Breathable seats
  • Low and high touring seats
  • More to come

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.
