Honda Africa Twin Adventure Roads Edition Full…

This year, Honda Adventure Roads participants rode 1,700 miles of rugged trails in Morocco, sleeping in bivouacs every night. Depending on the type of person you are, this may sound like an epic journey or a lot of hard work. If it’s the latter, don’t worry, because you can still embody the Adventure Roads spirit without embarking on such a challenging journey.

For 2024, Honda has introduced the CRF1100L3 Africa Twin Adventure Roads Edition, which takes the Japanese adventure motorcycle (in the tricolor, of course) and equips it with all sorts of accessories.

The UK-only special edition features crash and engine bars, fog lights and radiator guards from the accessories catalogue, plus an individually numbered number plate, Adventure Roads rim stripes and an Adventure Roads tank logo. All of this makes the bike ready to tackle the really tough stuff and – most importantly – makes it look pretty serious.

Mechanically everything is the same, meaning you get a 1,084cc liquid-cooled parallel twin with a 270-degree crankshaft for an offset firing order, giving it similar specs to the V-twin found in the OG Africa Twin. Good for 100bhp at 7,500rpm, a fairly modest figure compared to some rivals, but backed up by a strong 82.6lb ft of torque at 5,500rpm.

The Adventure Roads Edition is based on an electronic suspension version of the Africa Twin – if you want passive forks/monoshocks, you’re out of luck. However, you can choose which type of transmission you have in your AR Edition. A manual is £15,699, while a DCT (dual-clutch transmission) is £16,899.

That’s a premium of £1,000 for each one, and when you consider all the accessories you get, it seems like pretty good value. If you want one, you’d better dig a bit – there are only 75 available.
