Honda put the new Africa Twin in the CRF category for a reason. Like the popular dirt bikes that share its nomenclature, this bike was made to not only handle the tough stuff, but to excel in it. Protect your CRF1000L Africa Twin with a set of AltRider Crash Bars, and venture confidently into the unknown.
Why a 3-Part Crash Bar System?
We designed this system to be modular so that different types of riders could choose their level of protection. Some riders may be headed for a major off-road adventure, where the Full Crash Bar System will provide the most comprehensive solution. Others may not want the entire “roll-cage” type system, opting instead for just the Lower or Upper Bars. Some people may also choose to start with the Lower Crash Bars and add the other pieces over time. Whatever category you fall into, AltRider has a Crash Bar solution for you.
Lower Africa Twin Crash Bars
The 3-part system starts with the Lower Crash Bars. Knowing the engine cases are the most exposed in all tip-overs, we designed these for maximum strength so that these alone will provide substantial protection to the bike’s engine and vulnerable castings. The Lower Bars are constructed of 1.25 in (3.175 cm) diameter steel, which is twice as strong as 1 inch diameter steel while only adding 10% of the weight. This allows for a compact design that will function under impact while not interfering with the rider.
Upper Honda Africa Twin Crash Bars
The 1 in (25.4 mm) Upper Crash Bars add another dimension of protection, providing coverage to the bike’s radiator and plastics. Upper Bars are more important on the tall and skinny Africa Twin than on many other bikes, as a simple tip over could result in substantial damage to these pieces
The 1 in (25.4 mm) Reinforcement Bar ties the Lower and Upper Bars together, increasing the strength of the overall system. This design allows for even large impacts to be distributed throughout the entire system, minimizing damage to the bike’s engine, frame and other vital components.
All pieces in the system are made of high quality stainless steel in the USA. Select a configuration at the right for additional information on individual components.
