Coloring Design for 2020 CRF1100L Africa Twin

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.33 No.1

Summary

In 2016, Honda revived the iconic Africa Twin with three color schemes: Tricolor (red/blue/white), CRF Rally (red/black/white), and monotone (black, silver). Instead of being simple color variations, they create distinctive moods for the respective models with differing primary usage. The 2020 model has two versions: the Africa Twin with enhanced off-road riding experience, and the Africa Twin Adventure Sports with enhanced comfort for touring. In considering the color schemes, we sought to express a deeper worldview of the iconic model by linking each color scheme to its own characteristics and the model’s heritage.
