    Honda has unveiled their new Enduro Sports concept bike at EICMA and it sure looks like a dirt warrior. The Africa Twin Enduro Sports concept has been created to expand the Africa Twin family and capture the imagination of customers dreaming of new possibilities for this “Go Anywhere” adventure machine.

    As such, with the Enduro Sports version, Honda’s R&D designers have pushed the concept of the CRF1000L Africa Twin to new limits, with a vision for even better off-road ability. The base model has been embellished with several lighter weight chassis parts, derived from Honda’s single-cylinder racing CRF models. The overall look and feel is one of lightness with a sporty attitude.

    According to Honda, the Enduro Sports concept was designed to be ‘Queen of the Off-Road’, like no other multi-cylinder machine.

    At this stage, the Enduro Sports is just a concept and there are no details yet about whether the bike will ever go into production but the idea of a lighter, more nimble enduro version of the Africa Twin is sure to generate a lot of interest in the adventure segment.

    I reckon you’re right there Stefan. The Africa twin, while still good isn’t quite what the concept portrayed it to be.

    Looks cool, if they could make it 180 kg or less it would b a contender

    that’s pretty wishful Mike. Honda reckon the CRF1000L starts at a kerb weight of 232kg. That’s wet with almost full tank so about 30kg to lose. Don’t see it getting anywhere near that. http://www.honda.co.uk/motorcycles/range/adventure/CRF1000L-africa-twin/specifications.html
