Already an excellent performing machine off-road, it is hard not to be excited at the prospect of a stripped down more lightweight version of the hugely successful Africa Twin.

As such, with the Enduro Sports version, Honda’s R&D designers have pushed the concept of the CRF1000L Africa Twin to new limits, with a vision for even better off-road ability.

The regular CRF1000L Africa Twin has been embellished with several lighter weight chassis parts, derived from Honda’s single-cylinder racing CRF models. The overall look and feel is one of lightness with a sporty attitude.

Honda have named this machine an ‘Enduro Sports concept,’ I hope to god it becomes a reality.
