Recently Honda gave us a sneak peak at the 2016 Africa Twin or the CRF1000L. But the photos revealed very little about the motorcycle, basically nothing more than how the headlights and the front fairing would look from the sides. Thanks to Asphalt and Rubber digging around the internet, there have been patent drawings revealed which show the how the entire bike would look like, for what we believe as of now, is the final product.
The 2016 Africa Twin could see a official unveil from Honda as early as November at EICMA 2015, where they showcased the True Adventure prototype last year. Following the reveal, the motorcycle could go to sale by the first quarter of 2016 as a new year model.
Currently, apart from the photos, Honda has not released any details on the specification of the engine or the rest of the motorcycle apart from few details like the 1000 cc engine is infact going to be a in-line twin and the motorcycle would also be available with an optional Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). Like the current breed of ADV motorcycles, it is most likely that the Africa Twin would feature a slew of tech gadgetry to keep itself relevant, things like multiple rider/power modes, multi-mode ABS and traction control.
