I am able to hear the buzz loud and clear in Japanese media and the buzz is Honda to upgrade there touring model Africa Twin this is to add more vigor to what today’s riders are looking for more power and more slickness.Therefore it is not uncommon that Honda might not upgrade and i might not hear it in anyway.
So the news is Honda may give the Africa Twin a new look and the design inspiration will be brought from Sports replica CBR1000R the major update will be power from engine which may expand to 1100cc to match other rivals in this category of long commuting tourers.
The current model in Honda CRF1000L- Africa Twin has 94 hp @ 7000 rpm and the max torque is 98 Nm @ 6000 rev/min.
Honda has already provided the information with the number of its highest strength available now and is sufficient to use with this tourer. But with increase in demands and competition Honda has to upgrade the Africa Twin as there is slight possibility that they might convince the current riders on this nos.
