Honda’s Africa Twin CRF1000F gets mods by SW-Motech…
SW Motech has introduced some of the first model-specific accessories for Honda’s much-anticipated CRF1000L, so owners can start to tailor their big Twin to their needs.
A spacious and versatile luggage system is a priority for any traveller, and now Africa Twin owners can have all their kit close to hand with the Quick Lock EVO Tankbag system and Bags Connection Tail Packs.
With a comprehensive range of bags, and the unique click-on-ride-off tank ring system, Quick Lock EVO Tankbags give quick and easy access to travel documents, maps, mobile phones and other essentials. They come in a variety of styles and capacities, so the rider can choose what’s right for the journey:
Expandable from 2.5-5L and with a cable port and rain cover, the Micro Tank Bag (£56.32) is the perfect solution for short hops.
The Daypack (£80.08) holds between 5-9L of kit, perfect for the longer rides and when larger items like a rain suit need to be close to hand. It also has rain covers, cable ports and carry handles for use off the bike.
For the real explorers, the GS Tank Bag (£136.39) carries up to 22L when fully expanded. It has three outside pockets and inner compartments to keep everything organised, as well as a rain cover, shoulder straps, cable ports and much more
EVO tank rings have a slim design, so all bags sit closer to the tank, and an improved four-point mounting, so they’re held securely and can be clipped on and off in seconds. Purchased separately from the bags, the EVO ring adaptor for the Africa Twin costs £24.64.
For those needing additional carrying capacity, there’s also a complete range of Tail Packs suitable for the Honda; capacities range from 13-90 litres and all are made from tough 1680 Ballistic Nylon, with secure and stable four-point attachment. Compression straps, expanding sections and waterproof inner bags and zips also feature.
Riders can also benefit from Handlebar Risers, providing a more upright and relaxed riding position. The kit raises the Honda’s bars by 30mm, helping to take the strain out of the wrists, forearms and neck on longer runs. No modifications to the Africa Twin’s cables, wiring or top yoke are necessary and the kit is compatible with the original bars. Prices start from £40.70.
GPS and Mobile Phone mounts, and Mirror Extenders are also now available for the Africa Twin. More accessories will be announced soon.
