The 2021 Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin will get a new colour option for the standard variant. The 'Pearl Glare White Tricolour' colour scheme was previously only available on the higher-spec Honda Africa Twin Adventure Sports. Now the base Africa Twin will also get that colour scheme, in addition to the existing Grand Prix Red and Matte Ballistic Black options. Apparently, more than 70 per cent of Adventure Sports buyers have opted for the red, white and blue 'tricolour' scheme, and Honda has now decided to offer it on the base variant of the Africa Twin as well.
