Honda has confirmed the date of the CRF1000L Africa Twin press launch suggesting a release date for the much-anticipated motorcycle will be following not too long afterwards.
The press launch will be taking place in South Africa between 3-5 December and test riders will be able to experience the motorbike in both on and off-road scenarios.
As ever, ABR will be bringing you real-time updates as we get to grips with the machine over the course of the launch and you can expect a full and comprehensive review in our Jan/Feb issue.
