The Honda African Twin logo is the stuff of legend; now the super-recognizable piece will make a highly-anticipated return on the brand new CRF1000L officially unveiled by Honda.

The motorcycle is designed for bikers looking to rip it up off-road. This is reflected in the bike's name, with CRF referring to Honda's contemporary Motocross and Enduro competition bikes.

This bike is outfitted with a 998 cc two-cylinder engine along with a Unicam 4-valve design and a 270-degree crankshaft. The engine is capable of pumping out 94 horsepower and offers 72.3 pounds-feet of torque, all of which comes through via a six-speed gearbox.

This Honda Africa Twin offering is all about off-road cred, and with features like 9.8-inch ground clearance and clutch casing-housed water pumps, this bike is truly designed to help you enjoy your riding off the beaten path.
