I don't know why this image keeps being pulled up for the CRF1000L. That's a CRF450 Rally.
All I can say is a very well done to the Honda marketing guys for establishing any kind of connection between the two.

This is the pick that gets me all frothy...she's sho sheckshy

397 pounds = 180kgs.

stolen from here : http://indefinitelywild.gizmodo.com/2016-honda-crf1000l-africa-twin-leaks-1704644496 (http://indefinitelywild.gizmodo.com/2016-honda-crf1000l-africa-twin-leaks-1704644496)

What the ADV market has lacked for so long is a genuine, scaled-up dirt bike. Something that doesnt weigh way too much or have too much complication. Were told Honda is targeting a dry weight of 440lbs. And, this all-new 1,000cc parallel-twin sounds like its been tuned to work like a big single, delivering immediate response and big torque over useless high-rev horsepower. All backed up with Honda reliability, pricing and its vast dealer network. Stay tuned for more.

440 pounds seems a bit more realistic. 440 pounds = 199kgs

My Transalp is 214kg dry so I really wouldn't have a problem with this thing weighing 220kg. Anything under 200kg and I'd be giggling like a child.

my XTZ 660 is also over 200kgs. almost 3 times less power. lets hope this is a revolution that honda are famous for. why not, with all this tech and and manufacturing advancements we shouldn't have to settled for fat, slow under powered bikes. wonder if yamaha/suzuki/kawasaki will follow? must be the largest most profitable recreational biking industry around.

Looks like a fully loaded test to me. I'm wiling to bet there's 30kg in each of those four pieces of luggage; just looks at the angle of the swing arm, and those forks look way too raked out forwards.

Gah! You beat me to it!

I was just going to say, they've called it the CRF1000L. I wonder what the CRF1000R will be like...

Always said Kawa will do well with the Versys if it had 21/18 wheelset, but no, Honda has to show them the way again. What about a 650 KLE with Supercharger then Alla H2?? That will be a market leader in all regards then I suppose....90hp from that with ultra low emissions and very light on fuel and weight?????
Am I asking too much from the Green brigade to be really GREEN in all aspects' off adv riding?? Supercharged CDi KLR for 2020??

something to cheer is up. maybe the last pic was the heavy load breaking point test... although that pic is not of a parralell twin. it is a single of you look closely at the cylinder. false alarm.

Nope that's definitely a twin, and probably the AT.
You can see the second exhaust header coming down the other side of the front frame piece.
(Side note: Glad the engine is not a stressed member)

That said, the pic you posted has me all giddy again. This is looking like a serious, high clearance, off-road oriented machine deserving of the CRF badge.
I'm going to want some serious crash bars / skid plate action for all that hardware sticking out above the right footpeg though...

Also, I keep seeing one pic with a stepped seat, then another with a KTM690 seat, then another with the stepped seat...do you think we're seeing the CRF1000R?

Title: new CRF Africa Twin impressions
Post by: dadrob on May 21, 2016, 10:00:28 pm
A weekend in heaven

Was fortunate to be afforded  CRF 1000 Africa Twin for the weekend. And I simply cannot get enough of it

Perfect fit..(I'm 1.74).. Superb handling ..more than adequate power.. Easy to see the CRF heritage.. Its  8/10ths scale of the super behemoths.. But for a bloke of my stature that is the magic recipe. It just fits..

I chose the DCT version.. And it works. From the "drive" setting which is perfect for about town, to the sport settings. It all just integrates into seamless perfection.. Especially when you discover that the manual paddle switches still function in these auto modes. So one can cane it away from the lights..and then flick into top.. Of course the box shifts down on its own too.. With a slight hesitant neutral as it goes back to first.

The paddle shift is superb. Almost instant response. No clunking. Just butter smooth,whatever the throttle position
Traction control can be switched off, which I did. Makes for a better 'dirt bike' experience in my opinion. You can still tempt the back end out with a crack of the throttle when the system is on. But in a flash the system comes into play. Reactive. Not dictating.

Do I want one



 you betcha.
 and yes it would be the DCT.. No question

Anyone want to but  Tramsalp?,a 600RR? A CR 500 ? Ktm 250,and 450?. And a few running VMX race bikes ?

If I could only ever have ONE bike.. This would be it..

Off to bed now.
 need to be riding at dawn..Honda want her back on Monday morning

Title: Re: new CRF Africa Twin impressions
Post by: dadrob on May 23, 2016, 05:21:32 pm
Ian I took the auto simply because it was something new

to be honest I was a little apprehensive as i thought it was just a glorifies scooter , but boy was i in for a surprise

Initially I left it in D (drive ) with less that a quarter throttle opening she shifts seamlessly through the box , all the way up.
no hesitation , just butter

I did try manual as well , usuing the paddles , but to be honest it was just so much work heheheh
I founf the best compromise was D with a bit of throttle , and then to click the + paddle a few times once cruising speed had been reached if you were not in top gear already

in town , or stop start - its a no brainer ,  auto all the way ..
offroad , hmmm  tech i would probably run manual , in case you need to hoik the front , but the package is so good you could probably keep it in s3 and whack it ..


but the DCT wins the contest by a country mile in my book   .. and I had a CRF with a Rekluse so I am probably biased

Hi Guys
I have just heard Honda SA has run out of ATs. The only units left are the ones currently on the Dealers Floors. The next shipment due to high demand worldwide and earthquake blah blah only arrive end of January. As a guess probably with a price increase.

Yes, it's true that Honda SA is out of stock!
Don't know about the end of Jan rumour, but there will most probably be a price increase whenever the next shipment arrives ...

Yes , my dealer has confirmed a price increase on the next shipment, which is probably September. He also mentioned that there might be a problem with stock availability.
Honda Central Bloemfontein has sold around 40 units already ( most in SA ) and they have around 6 on the floor.

I have been at Zambezi Honda just the other day and counted 7 on their floor. Rand/usd is actually better....can't understand the need for a price increase other than bigger profit margins

Exactly. They sold the first shipments at very low profit. If Honda SA want's to come out on top they will have to start making money on these bikes.

I see you have the DCT model. I am still confused by the models and colors.

Black/silver is the basic model.
Red you get with abs and with or without dct.
White/blue/red abs with or without dct.

I saw a guy today on an African Twin and he did not look comfy. He is huge and made the bike look way too small....i think some guys with 160kg and 6feet plus frame need to look at the 1200's 😂  😃

there are no DCT models c-u-r-r-e-n-t-l-y...
there WERE DCT's availabel, 2 months later than the other models, not THAT many, and then they ran oout...
Earthquake 30km's from Honda's factory did not help...
We hear (from Honda South Africa) that no new DCT's in the 2016 model year, more in Q1 2017...

At 110 you will go a very long way. About 23KM per Liter perhaps even more. At over 120 consumption rises sharply.  .

Hi All

Anybody in Cape Town with a new Africa Twin that is looking for heavier springs. Im chatting to a vendor down there that imports springs and he needs to take a look at the Standard Springs, measure them, and will then be able to bring in the correct heavier rate for us bigger riders.

Please let me know if anyone can assist?

Helo All,

I'm fishing for a new ride.  The XC has been super over the last 6 years but it's time to move on.....

I really like the new AT and I have always been a twin fan ..... (double the coolness  O0 )  :lol8:

I'm a kortgat, 1.74 and the low seat height on the XC was necessary. How does the riding position on the AT feel like, I don't like fat wide front ends.

I do allot of tar, probably 70/30 tar/dirt.  I commute to work on it, will the AT like that kind of thing?

What ya'll say ?

Sounds pretty much exactly like my situation.  I'm a little bit taller (1.79) and I find the AT comfortable.

Go test ride one!  And leave your XC keys and your ID with the dealer while you do so that they can start on the paperwork so long.   :deal:  :thumleft:

Hulle is baie na aanmekaar wat "performance" betref .... MAAR, waar die GS'e en XCX moet werk, doen die Twin dit rustig sonder 'n sweetjie!!!
Die Twin is in 'n ander klas!!!  :deal:

Ek stem XRRX, ek ry tans saam met n groep ouens waarin daar ook n GS en XC is, ek sien die manne werk in sommige situasies oortyd met die gearbox om dieselfde momentum as ek te handhaaf. :ricky: :laughing4:

Eksien heel party manne het hulle XC's gaan inruil op African twins. Maak nogal sin vir my dat daar heelwat meer torque gaan wees met 200cc en n parallel twin.

Chris ek dink mens moenie n auto (dual clutch - fancy) gaan toets bestuur nie want al die ouens wat hom gaan ry is skepties en sodra hy terugkom is meeste se mening dat dit die beste ding is naas gesnyde brood.
......en jy het hoeka die fout gemaak om op een te gaan sit  :deal:

Vir my sou dit n perfekte fiets gewees het as die wiele tubeless was soos die KTM 1090 maar die meeste ouens gaan my seker nou kak vertel.....onthou net meeste van ons is nie 'pro ryers' nie en ek kom van roadies af en is steeds maar my roots - die DS is lekker want mens sit lekker en jy kan die 20% grond (as dit soveel is) lekker ry dis hoekom ek n hier drool. Daai Honda is sag op die oog en klink mooi ook, maar as ek die geld gehad het om te kon koop sou ek hard besluit het tussen die AT en die Oranje cousin.

Ek sal ook graag wil hoor wat die geleerde manne se oor daai hooflig storie - ek verkies ook altwee moet kan dim en bright

Tom, ek stem!

Oor die hooflig storie, ek is eintlik heel verbaas oor hoe goed die AT se ligte is.  Ek het in my ou 1200 HID ligte ingesit want die ding se standaard ligte was mar k@k.  Met die AT dink ek nie dis nodig nie.  Maar ek's seker as jy biejie draadwerk doen kan mens 2 gloeilampe (of dalk 'n gloeilamp met 2 filamente) in sit en die 2 lense saam laat skyn.   Maar dit pla my glad nie.

Oor die tube bande - ek is ook maar nog nie seker oor die nie.  Gelukkig het ek nog nie 'n pap wiel gekry nie, maar om 'n binneband te ruil is baie meer effort as om net te plug.  Ek ry nou maar net spaar tubes saam (en al die tools) en sal maar 'n beter opinie kan gee as ek uiteindelik 'n binneband moes ruil.

Maar vir nou ry ek haar soos ek haar getrou het.  En sy ry baie baie baie lekker!  Nie vir een oomblik spyt ek het daai papiere geteken nie!

Ja ek stem saam ek het geen probleem met ligte nie die Tiger se ligte was altwee aan maar moet s die AT het baie sterk lig , wat tube betrek ek het nog nooit tubeless bike gehad nie so dit pla my nie.

I did an fairly heavy trip in March and the clutch started becoming "heavy", very.
Thought it was just the lever as it started rattling big time towards the end of the trip so I just adjusted the cable tension and rattle gone.
since then I have removed lever, lubed the cable, checked routing, even greased the bolt.

was a bit better after 24k service & new oil. The guys claim actual clutch is 100%.

Any suggestions to get it back to "easier"?? (Buddy of mine just got an @ and clutch grafts with one finger).
Reason for asking, the price attached to opening the clutch is killer!!

Hi Guys

Just a quick, maybe uninformed question. Became the happy owner of a Twin in December. Use to have an 800GS and during the past 2 years a R9T (don't ask). My question / problem with the Twin is its rough and uneven idling. Is it a parallel twin thing? Phoned the dealer and spoke to the big chief mechanic. According to him you can't adjust the idling, it is self-adjusting. This also causes creeping along at very low speed a bit uncomfortable and jerky. Must I just get used to it and twist the throttle a bit more?

Title: Re: The Africa twin CRF1000L corner
Post by: XRRX on January 30, 2018, 08:51:46 pm
Yes - it is rougher than the 800 at idling - but much smoother everywhere else... 270 degree firing order ...
It should also be able to "creep" as you describe it better and thus slower than the 800 - cause it has more torque available at idle, even if it may "feel jerky" ...
Title: Re: The Africa twin CRF1000L corner
Post by: DavidMorrisXp on January 31, 2018, 08:05:21 am
I never really noticed rough idling but now it has been mentioned, I suppose mine does the same.

I imagine the clutch will slip without issue for the low speeds,

They do have a bit of a lumpy idle and was told its normal. Others I have heard idling sound the same.. so guess it is how they are.
I dont have any issues with slow creeping and jerking throttle though. But do seem to feel the TC perhaps activating if slipping the clutch on pull away

Got my new DCT on Saturday after the Rumbux crash bars and bash plate was fitted - put TKC80 on the front. Rode it to Bathurst and back after filling tank in PE. Fuel warning light at 240 km- averaging 135km/h mostly in D. Hopefully fuel consumption improves when engine has run in. Buffeting/vibration of helmet peak is very bad. Besides the US sourced wind deflector between the tank and forks or home made are there other solutions available locally? Dealer not aware of anything

Gepraat van bande, ek hou baie van die E07s vir teerpad en harde grondpaaie.

Ek ry baie kronkel teerpaaie in die nat wintermaande as die grondpaaie onbegaanbaar is. Die E07s het baie goeie grip op dro teer (vir n on/off band) tot op die rand vd band, en is baie stabiel en voorspelbaar op full lean. Jy kan maar plat l in die draaie. Nat grip is ook nie sleg nie.

Hierdie is op 7000 kms. Ek glo ek sal maklik 15000 km uit die agterband kry. Ek ry hulle hard, 3 bar agter, 2.5 voor.

SW Motech EVO Daypack

https://sw-motech.com/en/products/luggage/tank+bags/EVO+tank+bag/4052572042786.htm

Dis n lekker grootte vir selfoon, beursie, kamera , sleutels, basiese tools ens. Hy bly permanent op die bike, en pla nie as mens staan nie.

Ek het ook die GS tankbag vir meer bagasie. Hy pas goed op die tank maar is te groot vir algemene gebruik. Ek hou niks van top boxes & harde panniers nie.

I have been very blessed often in my life, and having has the 2019 DCT in my hands since before Easter has been such a total treat. 
Mostly riding by myself, I have really got to grips with this machine.  I can really understand the allure of DCT.

Joined a few organised rides, mostly with the KTM idjits, and this machine makes it all so darn easy!

I am going to be really sad when I give this machine back in the next few weeks....

We went to ADA on Saturday to test ride the New Adventure sports, I opted for the Manual and DCT models (Had never ridden an auto)

First off, journalists cant ride!!!
We were the first to ride on Saturday morning, the bikes had taken a serious beating on Friday with the journalists, broken plastics, scratched and cracked plastics, Dented exhaust pipes. Seriously, they dont seem to care much, its not their bikes  :eek7:

I have only ever ridden the 2018 Africa Twin (My other halfs)
I havent been a great fan of it, the front suspension nose dives and I always feel like I am going over the handle bars when I brake hard.

I was more interested in the Adventure sports, its bigger, has a bigger tank, has more presence, looks better too, its also a better comparison to my current GSA

The stock AT looks pretty, in red at least, I dont like the Black and red configuration, it just looks crap IMHO

The Adventure sports got my attention in many things, mostly the bells and whistles, yes I know that shit can cost you money when it breaks, but its still cool, they come standard with Apple Carplay (This is a little sucky, as I am not a sheep, I use Android phones)
Why do manufacturers think that the majority of the world revolves around Apple, here in SA I think by Far Android is market leader
But I am sure with a software update in the near future and Android Auto will be part of the package.

That screen (Touch screen) is absolutely awesome, clear, easy to read, doesnt get effected by sun shining on it. you can play with your ride settings choose from 4 riding mores and also have 2 extra user specific ride modes that you can customise to your own personal taste.. They do not come out with any form of crash bars as yet, thats not a plus for them, but I am sure they will sort that out soon.

It comes with Tubeless tyres, YES!!!

Then we got off to the ride, I started on the Manual, with a quick Shfiter.
Unfortunately the handlebars on my first bike werent set correctly, they were too far back, making for a kak ride, my elbows hanging behind my back and standing was very uncomfortable, I must have looked like the hunchback of notre dame.
I came back sore and not really feeling great about the bike, but I told the guys that they should sort that shit out as its going to influence people perceptions.

Power!!! Holy crap, its got lots of it, you open that throttle, WOW, it shunts, I was gobsmacked, 100cc's more and its chalk and cheese to the std 2018 Model. It move, quick response.
On the dirt it handles very well, sticking to the dirt and it feels super light. I felt more confident on the dirt on this than on my GSA, I do suspect it could be the 21" front though.
The screen which is adjustable it perfect, blacks all the wind and on long trips you will sit comfortably without being buffeted, its also adjustable up and down, so for taller guys you have no problem, no need for unsightly clip on aero trims

On my second ride I felt more comfortable, the DCT handle bars were set better, handlebars still felt slightly low when standing, I also felt that the foot pegs are a little high  and maybe too far forward, it could still be due to an incorrect setup but when standing I felt very far forward over the front.
DCT is something else, its basically an auto, makes for easy riding, in some places I think I would prefer manual but in other scenarios I feel that the DCT makes things some much easier
Slow riging through trees and cattle  paths I found that it must made things so much easier.  And it doesnt really change your power delivery, even when cruising, if you twist that ear it will kick down a gear or 2 instantly and unleash massive power.

R250 for the Manual and R260 for the DCT its just about within the market range, add the extras like crash bars and quick shifter and youre going to be at the same price as a GSA

I loved it, its pretty, would I buy one, absolutely, if I had the cash, for now I can only dream.

I did notice that it doesnt nosedive like our AT, makes me wonder if there is something wrong with the suspension on ours, or the adventure sports has a much better front suspension

Post by: Boerbok on October 05, 2020, 06:57:54 am
Ja dis mooi groen @Dorsland! Suid-oos Aus kry winterrenval, so dis gewoonlik baie groen tussen Mrt en Des. Jan en Feb is die veld vaal gebrand as die ren verdwyn en maks temperature gereeld oor 40C styg.

Ek geniet die AT baie, en hys betaal, so dit maak dat ek hom selfs meer geniet. :biggrin: Hys n Jack-of-all-trades, en doen meeste dinge baie goed, maar nie perfek nie. Ek hou juis van hom omdat hy so veelsydig is. Ons het almal seker groot planne vir maand-lange toere oor die kontinente heen, en hy kan dit doen, maar as ek meer realisties is, is dit die regte fiets vir waar ek gewoonlik ry: konkel teerpad en mooi grondpaaie deur die heuwels en plantasies in my omgewing. En as dit nodig is kan hy ook commute stad-toe, of die lang snelwegmyle eet.

As ek meer tegniese roetes gedoen het sou ek dalk na iets kleiner en ligter gekyk het, dalk soos n T7, of selfs n KTM500. Never say never, maar vir nou het ek genoeg geld in die AT gesink om vir n laaang tyd gelukkig en tevrede te wees.

Nee wat, nie in my ervaring nie. Die polise is net op jou spoor as hulle jou vang droogmaak. Hulle sit wel gereeld langs die paaie met radarguns in ongemerkte karre en vang ouens vir spoed.

I did the Jozi to Kozi trip this past weekend. It was WET with a lot of mud and clay.

Please be aware that the Africa Twin has a serious design flaw in these conditions, the front mudguard is to close to the front wheel, so when the tyre clogg up with mud, the front lock up, resulting in some heavy falls. Please take special care before you ride any wet and muddy roads, the bike does not work in these.

Somewhere on the forum is a mod to lift the mudguard by enough, maybe the high fender mod will also work.  I know leftless did something similar

Who knows what happened to Zambezi Honda? One of my mates wanted to get his twin serviced there since I referred him and he said the doors are closed? Dont tell me they are out of business?
I loved their service.

They are now only a car dealership. As far as I know only Menlyn and Centurion has a bike department. Both of them is very, very useless, in my experience.

Correct, could not agree more.
