A bit of Africa (Twin) in Wales!

Monday,07 Nov 2016

The new Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin was well and truly tested as Lings Director Paul Barkshire took up an invitation from Honda UK to participate in an Off Road Experience day at Dave Thorpe Honda Off Road Centre.

The all new Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin marks the return of a genuine legend. The definitive Adventure bike, the Africa Twin originally launched in 1988 - and now it's back to reclaim it's throne.
Paul joined a small group of motorcycle dealers from across the Honda network, along with Head of Honda UK Motorcycle Division Nick Campolucci, to see what the new Africa Twin was all about. While Paul knew the new machine could hold it's own, even he was surprised at just how capable it was in the hills and valleys of Pontypridd.

"When i first thought about the idea of riding an Africa twin in those conditions I was honestly unsure...but as soon as I got to grips with the bike and was taken through some basic tuition I was amazed at just how superbly the Africa Twin held its own in this very varying conditions, it was challenging but rewarding to see such a quality road bike a affirm its off road credentials."

"With Geared and DCT options for the group to try it was just amazing how good both versions were, bikes and riders were put to the full test in some very testing conditions which changed by the hour."

You can find the CRF1000L Africa Twin at our Honda dealerships now - book yourself on a test drive and see for yourself - we may not have the hills of Wales but the Africa Twin is just as at home on the winding roads of East Anglia!
