An Auto Trader Best Bike Award is regarded as a signature of excellence from the UK's biggest marketplace for motorcycles. Whether you're a seasoned pro or just starting out, rest assured we have a category that matters to you.
In 2016, the Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin has been crowned Auto Trader Bike of the Year for its staggering ability and composure both on-road and off-road. Inspired by the Dakar-winning NXR750, the first XRV 650 Africa Twin arrived in 1988, followed by the XRV 750 in 1990. It's been a fitful hibernation, but this latest iteration has been worth the wait and proves that Honda still has the ability to make a truly outstanding adventure bike.
