2020 HONDA CRF1100L AFRICA TWIN & ADVENTURE SPORTS ES R I D E R E V I E W P62 W e've been big fans of the Honda Africa Twin since it arrived on the scene in 2016. Since then, it's won two comparison tests and finished a close second in the third test, even though it was essen- tially the same machine since it debuted in 2016. The 2018 model year saw a few updates like seven- stage traction control and little motor tweaks, plus the ar- rival of the Adventure Sports version with more fuel capac- ity and longer travel suspension, aimed more at touring riders who like to venture down a dirt road occasionally. The new Africa Twin range is much smarter than the outgoing two models, and in some cases, too smart for its own good. Two Of A Kind? A new decade Twin Adventure BY RENNIE SCAYSBROOK
