The highly anticipated Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin claimed the title of best-selling bike in January of 2016. Given the reviews that we’ve seen so far, it’ll most likely hold onto that title long into this year. And this hasn’t gone unnoticed by aftermarket companies; for the more discerning Africa Twin customer, Giannelli have stepped up to the plate to provide a little more in the OE exhaust department.Giannelli, a longtime manufacturer of exhaust components based out of Italy, has developed its MaxiOval line to be a direct slip-on to the CRF 1000L Africa Twin. Slip-on exhaust systems give a bit of a boost in the performance department, not to mention looks and tone.
Available in in titanium, aluminum and a dark aluminum, all of these slip-ons come complete with a carbon endcap.For more information regarding these slip-on kits, head on over to www.giannelli.com.
