First Impression Review

Honda has its history to tell about its adventure motorcycle; Africa Twin. The prodigious sagas of Africa twin start from the Dakar Rally itself, back in 1986, where the legendary NXR650 made its debut at the Dakar Rally and conquered the rally consecutively in ‘87, ‘88, and ’89, and then the history of winning went into the original XRV650 Africa Twin which later became the now legendary XRV750 Africa Twin. Now after four years of constant development, Honda has managed to have the same roots into the CRF1000L Africa Twin.
