DOHA: Domasco, the authorized distributor for Honda in Qatar,has made the first delivery of the new ‘Honda Africa Twin’ motorbikes recently.
The much anticipated new Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin meets the extraordinarily high expectations set by adventure riding enthusiasts. The strong 1000cc parallel twin has 4-valve Unicam head design. It delivers handfuls of torque so satisfying and addictive, it will tempt riders to break free from the tarmac at the earliest opportunity.Dual spark plugs per cylinder, a lightweight camshaft – made from the same material proven in the Fireblade – and a 270° phased crankshaft, give this bike a distinctive feel and character all of its own.
Wrapped in a steel double-cradle frame, the engine’s compact dimensions allow other components to be mounted closer to the center of machine; centralizing the mass and lowering the center-of-gravity. With a class leading 250mm ground clearance for off-road excursions, riding this bike feels like second nature.
Greig Roffey, Head of Sales & Marketing for Domasco Honda welcomed the customers at the Honda showroom said: “The Africa Twin is a bike that’s as impressive as the desert itself. This unique, light and agile combination of power and handling sets new standards for adventure bikes.”
Commenting on the occasion, Faisal Sharif, Managing Director at Domasco said: “The legend lives on! The new Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin will revolutionize the way we look at motorcycles and specifically those with off-road capabilities. We are delighted to make our first delivery to our passionate customers that seek the true spirit of adventure and the ability to go anywhere.”
Frank Grobler, who has purchased the DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) version, said “This is the bike that I have been long awaiting. The automatic version with DCT does have the option to do manual shifts via paddle switches or an optional electronic gear lever. It offers a drive mode with three additional sport modes.”
