Frankenstein scrambler: a Swiss 145 hp Honda Africa Four
When you are a Honda dealer, in Switzerland and you are the founder of Brivemo Africa Twin Rally in Tunisia you can play with a few Honda motorcycles: Honda CFR 450R, Honda Africa Twin and a Honda CB1000R and you create a brand new motorcycle: HONDA AFRICA FOUR !
Brivemo Motos, the official Honda dealer in Switzerland www.brivemo.ch played with the motorcycles maybe for competing in Brivemo Africa Twin Rally in Tunisia this year but as well they hope that Honda will look into this and maybe do a serial production.
The love story betwen CFR 450R, CB1000R and Africa Twin created a 145 horsepower Frankenstein! A modern scrambler!
The Honda Africa Four has an adapted suspension unit from CRF450R, creating a completely new front end with a single large diameter disc brake disc, anodised 4-piston caliper and Continental TKC 80 tyres.
If they will really use the motorcycle during the rally, the carbon 4 into 1 exhaust with the downpipes and under the engine will need more protection.
Four-cylinder engine and 145 horsepower , with aluminum central beam chassis and lightweight single-arm rear swingarm that exposes the right side of the tyre.
Engine protection, toothed footpegs, minimalist LED indicators and Adventure Sports bodywork. They fitted electronic throttle and traction control, with four unique riding modes but no ABS which means that the motorcycle mastered by skilled hands is an amazing toy.
Would you ride this beast?
