What do you think of when you think about freedom? I mean, what is it to experience real freedom. Just to let yourself go and just disappear out of your head, even for a few moments. Many of us won’t ever experience this, or maybe we will. We don’t really know if we’ll ever truly divorce ourselves from the world and experience what it is to be free.
There is however, one way that we can take our mind and body into a new realm of liberation, and that’s jumping on a motorcycle and hitting the road for a journey that only you can experience at that moment in time. It’s just you, the road, and your motorbike. If you’ve ever taken a nighttime ride down the country lanes then you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.
The bike itself if so important. It needs power, comfort and aesthetics. Each of those boxes are ticked with Honda’s CRF1000L Africa Twin. After the announcement of a True Adventure prototype at the EICMA back in November 2014, we can now announce that the much celebrated Africa Twin is hitting dealerships later this year. It’s exciting times, and that means even more options for your freedom adventure.
Having debuted back in 1989 with four successive wins at the Paris-Dakar, Honda’s original XRV650 Africa Twin was a beast of a machine. It’s comfort, handling and durability was a force to be reckoned with, and held down the gauntlet for adventure rides. As you would expect, these fundamentals live on in the new CRF1000L Africa Twin and continue to impress with it’s comfort, durability and handling. It does however feature Honda’s Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) technology that provides even more flexibility when off-roading – when you’re feeling truly adventurous!
To celebrate this launch, Honda have released a series of videos via their YouTube channel. In the latest episode, an elite team of riders must remain out of sight, like motorcycle ninjas to undergo covert testing for a True Adventure.
