The Honda Africa Twin is a dual-sport motorcycle made by Honda in two versions, first from 1996 to 2003 as the 750 cc (46 cu in) V-twin XRV750T, then from 2016 as the 1,000 cc (61 cu in) parallel-twin CRF1000L.
The CRF1000L is a 998 cc (60.9 cu in) parallel-twin dual-sport that revived the Africa Twin name for the 2016 model year. It became available in the UK in late 2015 and early 2016 in the US. It was developed as a modern interpretation of its predecessors, the XRV 750 and XRV 650, based on the NXR-750 which won the Paris-Dakar rally four times in the late 1980s. The original V-twin Africa Twin was first sold in Europe from 1988 to the final production year of 2003 but was never brought to the United States.

The XRV750 Africa Twin was a 742 cc (45.3 cu in) dual-sport based on the Honda NXR-750, which won the Paris-Dakar rally four times in the late 1980s. The engine was a 742 cc, 6-valve, four spark plug, liquid-cooled V-twin. The long-travel suspension insulates the rider from uneven surfaces. The brakes are twin discs at the front and single disc at the rear.
