Honda Africa Twin to make UK debut at Motorcycle Live

Those attending Motorcycle Live will be among the first in the UK to view the production version of Honda's hotly-anticipated new CRF1000L Africa Twin.

Set to arrive in showrooms early next year, coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the first in a run of four consecutive Paris-Dakar victories, the new Africa Twin will be revealed to show-goers at Birmingham's NEC on Saturday 28 November, which is the opening day of Motorcycle Live.

The Africa Twin combines touring comfort with all-round usability, and is intended to be a true adventure motorcycle. Its specification includes switchable rear ABS, multi-mode Honda Selectable Torque Control and an option to specify an all-new evolution of Honda's unique Dual Clutch Transmission, complete with off-road functionality.

The theme of adventure will feature heavily throughout Honda's presence at Motorcycle Live, reflected in the manufacturer's 'X' adventure range. For instance, the A-2 CB500X features a number of improvements for 2016, such as LED head and taillights, taller screen, adjustable pre-load on the front suspension, adjustable brake levers and a larger fuel tank.

Also revised for 2016 and on display for the first time in the UK, will be the new NC750X. Along with the whole NC family, now EURO4 compliant, Honda's mid-weight, all-purpose bike receives striking aesthetic changes, along with a suspension upgrade.

Motorcycle Live takes place at the Birmingham NEC from Saturday 28 November to Sunday 6 December.
