Video: Honda Adventure Roads 2017 – Oslo to Nordkapp on an Africa Twin

Earlier this year, a group of 40 motorcyclists embarked from Oslo to Nordkapp on the first Honda Adventure Roads ride – and Honda has just released an epic short film documenting the journey.

The group of riders travelled from Oslo to Nordkapp, the northernmost point in Europe, winding their way along the twisting roads that line Norway’s North Sea coast, on the CRF1000L Africa Twin, which was re-born for 2016.


Power is now provided by a 998 cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin that delivers 94bhp at 7,500rpm and 98 Nm (72.2 lb-ft) of torque at 6,000rpm. The powerhouse can be paired with either a simple six-speed gearbox or Honda’s new DCT unit. Plus, it’s got a slim profile, Selectable Torque Control, Drive and Sport riding modes, and switchable ABS too – making it perfect for an adventure.

This first Adventure Roads journey will set a template for similar epic Honda-powered adventures in the months and years ahead – and we can’t wait to see where they head next.
