Epic video shows all-new Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin adventure bike doubling up as a stunt bike!
We all know that the all-new 2016 Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin is a very capable adventure bike. The high ground clearance, long-travel suspension, versatile 998cc powerplant and knobby off-road tyres are all good indications of this, but perhaps this stunt rider saw things differently.
As you can see in the featured video that was (presumably) shot somewhere in Europe, the stunt rider takes the new flagship adventurer from Honda to hoon for the crowd. From wheelies and stoppies to burnouts and donuts, it appears as if the new Africa Twin could take it all.
One thing for sure, this stunt rider has proven that the new Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin is more than just a highly capable adventure!
Introduced into markets worldwide earlier this year, the new Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin is the spiritual successor to the legendary and iconic Honda XRV750 Africa Twin from 1989. The new Africa Twin sees it reliving its predecessor’s renowned off-road and enduro abilities.
The original Africa Twin has four Paris-Dakar Rally wins to its credit and, based on some of the overseas reviews we’ve read, the new Africa Twin lives up to that creed rather well.
However, we’d like to point out one important bit regarding this video. The stunt rider was certainly riding the manual transmission version and not the DCT-equipped version. We reckon that the Honda DCT suite is good for touring and off-road adventure rides, but definitely not for stunting.
