Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin more patent pictures

Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin more patent pictures

A MORE detailed picture of Honda’s CRF1000L Africa Twin has emerged through patent images.

Last week we showed you the bike’s right and left-hand-side in patent pictures, which gave the first detailed view of the 2016 Africa Twin, even if it was in greyscale.

Now a full set of Australian-filed patent images is circulating online, showing the bike from every angle, even underneath.

Honda has confirmed plans for the CRF1000L Africa Twin with two teaser-style dimly lit pictures of the front and side. The bike is due to be launched this autumn and will effectively make a production version of the ‘True Adventure Prototype’ shown covered in mud at last year’s Eicma Milan motorcycle show.

Honda has indicated the machine will have real off-road potential, saying it will share the ‘go-anywhere’ attributes of the original 1988 XRV650 Africa Twin and ‘redefine’ what a large-capacity adventure bike is capable of.

Details confirmed by the patent images include radial-mounted front brake calipers and a sump bash plate.
