16042 1/6 HONDA CRF1000L AFRICA TWIN

This large scale motorcycle series model depicts the CRF1000L Africa Twin, Honda's modern adventure touring motorcycle inspired by their legendary 4-time Paris-Dakar champion off-road bike.

The CRF1000L was released in 2015 and boasts a 998cc parallel-twin engine with a reported 92hp, plus an array of technology such as dual clutch transmission, selectable torque control for slippery surfaces, and ABS brakes.

This assembly kit captures the bike's most minute details in every way. This kit is sure to wow even the most discerning model enthusiast at this very large scale! 

  • Length: 390mm, width: 158mm, height: 255mm (when center stand is used)
  • Numerous metal screws and shafts are used in the assembly process for a realistic and durable end result.
  • The dual headlight is depicted by a combination of clear and metal-plated parts.
  • Separate parts are included to depict foot pedal (optional) and centre stand.
  • Front fork utilises metal inner and outer tubes, with internal spring for realistic suspension stroke. The rear damper has a metal shaft and has a pre-painted red spring.
  • The drive-chain is depicted by two halves which sandwich together and recreate individual links.
  • 4 separate parts are used to recreate the complex wheel spoke pattern. Solid synthetic rubber tyre parts are included.
