BMW R1250GSA vs. Honda Africa Twin

BMW R1250GS Adventure and the new Honda CRF1100L, better known as the Africa Twin, in the Adventure Sports version. These are the most wanted big adventure bikes on the market. But which one is better?

The BMW R1250GS Adventure is featuring the classic boxer engine, but updated with the latest tech – the ShiftCam system. Now it produces more torque, more power and it’s more refined than ever. Top spec electronics, very comfortable ride, a real globetrotter – this is the BMW R1250GS Adventure.

On the other hand, Honda made a huge comeback in the adventure motorcycling scene with the CRF1000L Africa Twin. After some years of great success and after listening the motorcycling community feedback, Honda changed almost everything and came with the CRF1100L Africa Twin. New electronics, new engine, more refined gearbox, new suspension, cruise control, tubeless tires on the Adventure Sports version, everything you might wish for.

We put some knobby tires on both bikes and we took them to almost every surface possible. Trails, gravel roads, highway, curvy roads with smooth asphalt. Here’s our BMW R1250GS Adventure vs. Honda Africa Twin in-depth review. Don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more.
