Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin Lighting & Accessories
When Honda decided to get serious about the adventure-touring market, it decided not to blindly copy BMW but to create a versatile and strongly off-road-capable motorcycle in its own way—including the engine configuration. If BMW owns the opposed-twin idea and both KTM and Suzuki love the V-twin, Honda selected a narrow, lightweight, torquey parallel-twin configuration for the Africa Twin, and it’s been a huge success. Now in its second modern generation, the Honda Africa Twin got a mild displacement boost and updates to its electronics to keep pace with the adventure-touring pack.
Honda made two versions, the regular Africa Twin and the Africa Twin Adventure Sports with electronically controlled Showa suspension and a bigger gas tank. Honda also makes otherwise identical versions with its DCT automatic six-speed transmission. But whichever Africa Twin you own, including the original liter-sized version since 2016, DENALI is ready for you. In fact, the Africa Twin was one of the first models fully outfitted by DENALI with LED driving lights, bike-specific light mounts, a SoundBomb horn kit, and other ways to upgrade the Honda’s off-road capabilities. After all, you want the best lighting accessories possible when you’re riding deep into the woods or crossing midtown Manhattan.
DENALI’s offerings for the Africa Twin include a frame-mounted Driving Light Mount for the 2016-2019 models in addition to Clamp Mount kits for the fork tubes or engine guards. Each of these mounts is designed to securely carry any of the DENALI LED driving lights, from the 15,000-plus-lumen D7 (using a total of 14 Cree LEDs of 10 watts each, for unmatched brilliance and beam distance) to the popular D4 pod as well as the compact and affordable S4 driving light. Whichever light you choose for your Africa Twin, they all possess key DENALI qualities: professional-grade wiring harnesses with DrySeal connectors, the ability to run at high or low intensities thanks to the plug-and-play DataDim module, and time-proven durability.
For off-road excursions, overlanding, or adventure touring, DENALI offers a variety of high-intensity LED lighting upgrades. DENALI D3 lights feature dual-mode DataDim technology. You get high and low beams, plus a choice of spots, floods, or both for all auxiliary light pods. The D3 is also offered as a fog lamp with three lenses available: clear, yellow, or orange.
Big, powerful LED motorcycle lights are what DENALI is best known for, but your Africa Twin can also benefit from the SoundBomb horn, the bright B6 tail light, which alerts drivers behind you that you’re stopping (we’re looking at you, cabbie), and a range of extremely lightweight Daytime Running Lights in bright white or high-contrast amber. Whether you need fog, brake, or auxiliary driving lights, DENALI can help. Thanks to DENALI’s huge selection of motorcycle lighting options, you can make your Africa Twin or Africa Twin Adventure Sports more confidence-inspiring during demanding night riding while also making it easier for others to see.
