The Honda Africa Twin: The Legend Lives On
Ahead of the release of Honda’s latest iteration of the Africa Twin, they have released a series of videos, the first of which offers beautiful archival footage of the early days of the Paris-Dakar Rally. Truly one of the most grueling motorcycle races on the planet, the Dakar has captured the hearts, minds and imaginations of many motorcyclists the world over, and has forever entrenched Honda as a world leader in off-road and enduro racing.
The new Africa Twin or CRF1000 is sure to be a all-terrain beast and I am personally very excited for its release and to see it race in the next Paris-Dakar.
Watching all these videos really makes me miss my XR.
