Honda continues to impress at this year’s EICMA in Milan with the announcement of the CRF10002L Africa Twin Adventure Sports. Think about everything that was great about the previous Africa Twin and dial that up a few more notches. The base Africa Twin isn’t exactly a slouch off the beaten path, but Adventure Sports gives Honda’s halo adventure bike the teeth and muscle it always deserved.

Larger fairings, a larger gas tank (now 6.37 gallons), a taller windscreen, longer suspension travel and a higher ground clearance (now 10.6 inches) pair with updated engine internals in a lighter, more responsive engine for a serious two-wheeled overlander. And all that, plus more for just a $2,000 premium over the base-level Africa Twin, which is tagged at $13,299. What’s not to love?
