Only a few days ago, we received pricing for the keenly anticipated Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin. The American market will get the Dual Clutch Transmission model for US$ 13,699 and the standard gearbox machine is set at US$ 12,999.
At the current exchange rate this makes the traditional gearbox motorcycle 463,024 THB and the DCT model 487,958 THB. How these prices translate to landed in Thailand is tricky to surmise but as soon as we have prices from Honda Big Wing we’ll let you know.
Both Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin machines will come as standard with ABS and HSTC (Honda Selectable Torque Control – type of traction control) and both systems can be switched off for dirt riding. The DCT system will either shift gears automatically or they can be shifted manually via buttons on the left handlebar. A foot gear change can be optional purchased as an accessory ‘for customers who want a traditional feeling’[
