HONDA CRF1000L AFRICA TWIN (2016-2019) £6500-£10,000
The Africa Twin is another legendary name in the adventure bike world. There might be a new shiny version with a bigger engine and electronically adjustable suspension on the market, but the first of the new ATs is a cracking bike that’s well worth your consideration.
At the time of its release, it was criticised for being less powerful and less punchy than its rivals (and it’s certainly no Multistrada V4), but there’s more than enough grunt from its 95bhp motor to make swift progress. And it’s lighter, slimmer and more accessible than a lot of the competition, too, which surely counts for something…?

It’s a Honda. That means it just works. No grumbles or gremlins, plenty of comfort and suitable for nearly all shapes and sizes. And you know it’s going to stand the test of time, too. It is a good motorcycle – both on and off the road. It’ll do the lot. You’ve got some nice mod cons as standard, including rider modes and adjustable traction control settings.
