Last month, we were pretty amazed at how the new Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin faired during our bike review. It is a capable adventure bike, but also potent on more gnarly off-road sections where other adventure bikes wouldn’t dare venture.

It takes a lot of technical wizardry and top shelf components to allow the Africa Twin to do what it does. That being the case, have you ever wondered how the Africa Twin is made?


In the video above by the Youtube channel, Automotive garage, we are taken inside one of Honda’s manufacturing facilities in Japan to show us how the Africa Twin is made.

Just like most assembly lines, everything runs on a conveyor where a technician installs or assembles each component until eventually, the bike is completed. From there, it runs through a brief test before it rolls out from the factory floor, into transport trucks, and into the showrooms.

It’s just amazing to see how small, individual components combine to turn into a full-blown adventure bike in just 13 minutes!
