UPDATE: Technical specifications for the 2016 Honda Africa Twin have also leaked.

Honda has been teasing a six-part video series about the Honda Africa Twin, and the final installment has just leaked onto the internet. As you would expect, the video finally gives us the full monty on what the Honda CRF1000L will look like, along with some great action footage.

Perhaps even better, the final installment of Honda’s video series also features a very interesting discussion with HRC riders, Honda engineers, and stakeholders to the Africa Twin brand.

The discussion is very insightful to the development of the 1,000cc adventure bike platform, including off-roading’s first dual-clutch transmission (DCT).

We expect Honda’s DCT on the Africa Twin to be a game-changer for ADV riders, as it will allow easier shifting from a standing position on the pegs.

Of course, the proof will be in the pudding, partially because the Africa Twin is supposed to be a dirt-focused ADV offering, but even more so because adventure-touring owners seem to be a very conservative group.



It is of course very interesting that Honda included that very discussion in its round-table interview found in this video. Something to chew on, for sure.
