Wonder what the specs are on it,I couldn't listen to that guy in the video

The stock bikes are very nice to drive on road tyres but I drove one on knobblies and it felt like it was going to drop on it side going around corners

Honda upped the game on BMW's painted on mud, It now offers the Africa Twin with that pre crashed look to save the new owner the trouble of going off road

Well, the marketing myth plied by Honda for over a year for the CRF Africa Twin seen the release of nothing more than an overpriced but competent trail bike with flaws. So what you get above the standard model for all that cash.....

Could buy a decent s/h one now that they're being resold with abundance and have it customised with WP/Ohlins etc and 'trick' parts that you'd need/want. And, with the change have enough to finance a nifty trip for a few months....... Oh, and buy some TouraTit shiny bits too.....
