Honda Africa Twin Review
« on: July 14, 2017, 08:10:04 »
A True Adventure - Honda Africa Twin
The CRF 1000L is a game changer in the ADV bike segment, especially the DCT model. The auto version can inspire confidence with its low seat height, encouraging riders to venture where it really shines—off the tarmac. The multiple riding modes suit just about any situation.

No it does not. Non ABS is the base model, no hand-guards, not even include the bottom plate...

We can still get all three models here in NZ. We're not so worried about emission standards on motorbikes as there are so few in NZ compared to cars, trucks and buses.

Thanks for your update by adding a more global perspective.
