Honda Africa Twin CRF 1000 L (2017) Motorcycle Hire

Honda Africa Twin CRF 1000 L (2017) Africa Twin CRF 1000

Honda Africa Twin CRF 1000 L (2017)

The new Honda Africa Twin packs an all-new 4-stroke 1000cc parallel twin engine. It has the muscle to take on extreme off-road environments, offers smooth comfort for long distance touring, and sprightly agility for the everyday commute. The standard manual version of the Africa Twin has a lightweight six-speed manual gearbox that uses the same shift-cam design found on the trusty CRF250R/450R - and is equipped with an assist slipper clutch. Coupled with a large 18.8 litre fuel tank and top fuel efficiency, it has a range of up to 248 miles. Enough to get where you wanted (or weren't expecting) to go.

MCN Review

The Africa Twin inspires confidence on the dirt immediately, regardless of your ability or off-road experience. Its physical size makes it a breath of fresh air in the current 1200+cc dominated adventure bike class; the parallel-twin motor making it both low and narrow. This, combined with the fuel tank ergonomics, means that when standing up the rider is able to get their weight forward over the front wheel while putting pressure through the footpegs to aid steering and grip - a vital asset when covering rough terrain.

Bike Hired - HONDA CBF 125

Returned a CB 125 today after hiring for 48h. The bike looked brand new when I collected it. The whole process was very quick and easy and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. If i ever needed to hire a motorbike again i would absolutely use them again.


Name - Anton Eder
Country - London, UK
Date - July 2018

I rented a Honda 125 from Superbike because I wanted something small and easy to handle. Brian talked me through everything nicely and immediately had the perfectly fitting clothing for me. The bike was in a great state and really fun to ride, the roads around Superbike rental are lovely and curvy to instantly enjoy the bike. I rode 200 miles a day, the roads south of London being my favourite. Returning the bike was easy & quick. Great experience overall.

Fantastic experience. Hadn't been actively riding for many years, and wanted to try a Honda VFR800 before buying anything. Mark and his team went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect for me. Very much worth it and I would have no hesitation in going back to try other bikes in future. Thanks again!

Highly recommend Superbike for any of your motorcycle hire needs. They have a vast collection of well-maintained bikes, which is very important when you intend on taking these into the middle of nowhere! We had a fabulous time and even went on their suggested route. I couldn't be happier with the entire experience at Superbike, I will definitely recommend to my friends and family and likely return myself.

As a first time biker in the UK, they treated me with royalty. Tips and pointers to help me throughout my 1,200 mile bike ride around England. Great job guys.

Well maintained motorcycles and great service!! my IOM trip happened because of them.

Bike Hired - Honda VFR

Flying in from Perth Western Australia midday and finding you tucked away in the countryside behind the church was my first surprise. I must admit my son Martin who is living in London and accompanying me was wondering who I was renting off. However to find such a well-equipped facility along with informative and hospitable crew reassured us both. The Honda VFR800F was perfect for what I had in mind and after 1000 miles was as responsive and comfortable as when I rode her out of your yard. To ride from London to the Isle of Man then back through the lakes and north Yorkshire was spectacular with the VFR neither missing a beat. The weather certainly helped with only one really wet day, fortunately that included crossing to the Isle of Man.

Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to hire your learner legal CBF 125. I had a great time with it. You and the team kept me informed and made me feel at ease throughout the hire process. The bike was in great condition and helped me gain so much more confidence.

Now I am ready to keep advancing my skills and want to do more. I'd recommend you to anyone looking to try a new bike out or advance their beginner skills and I will definitely be back again. Thanks and best wishes.

Bike Hired - Honda VFR

From my first contact with them I was given a first rate service, I hired the VFR 1200 which was immaculate and a joy to ride. It's rare in this day and age that you get such personal service and this is my first ever review but I felt compelled to write it as they deserve every ounce of praise.

I only have one criticism, when I returned the bike I was met by a Pannigale, a KTM RC8 plus various other exotica, the temptation to sign up for another week was so painful, please can you keep these bikes hidden from me next time?!

It's rare that I would ever recommend something but I have no issue with these guys, Superbike Rental were a delight and Brian even gave me a lift to the station after!

Thanks again guys, see you in the not too distant future.

I rented a Honda CB500X as you recommended. It was a good bike for me as I am of small statue. Great trip, great service.

"I hired the Honda CBR600RR from Superbike rental for Silverstone Moto GP weekend and I had a fantastic time!

It was effortless to get it all sorted and Trina & Dave where very helpful in getting me on the road!

I will definitely be using them again and would recommend them for anyone looking to hire a bike."

"I wanted to thank you for the photo that you sent and more importantly for the honesty and professionalism that you and your colleagues exhibited during our interaction.

On top of that the bike itself was in excellent condition and we had absolutely no issues with it. What more can one ask for.

Look forward to seeing you again next year."


Name - Ian Thorn

Bike Hired - Honda VFR

"I would just like to say thank you for the great week I spent with your VFR1200.

Once again, I have been impressed with your friendly, professional service and a spotless bike.

I have ridden and liked Honda's VFR800 but the 1200 is the big brother of the pair in every sense. The VFR1200 is no lightweight sports bike but couple a decent frame and suspension with excellent brakes and that V4 engine and the result is a really capable machine.

The biggest surprise is that the moment you set off all the bulk seems to disappear and the Honda becomes responsive and almost agile. Add to this the huge reserves of power from the big V4 and it makes every ride a real pleasure with very little difference whether it is solo or two up and loaded.

My only problem for the future is that I think the blend of comfort and usable power the Honda offers might just become addictive."

"I wanted to say a personal thanks for the hire of the two motorcycles I hired over the past week.

it's been a pleasure dealing with you and your company, and right from the start with your willingness to accommodate my request for specific bikes as much as possible.

The bikes I hired were both latest models and all presented like new and reliable throughout the hire.

I must say I appreciated the efficient response to all my queries, a very professional and personal approach. So I will have no hesitation in recommending your service to my friends when I return to Bahrain, and perhaps we'll see you for the IOM TT next year."

"Just a quick thank you for the excellent service I received for my week with your Honda Hornet.

Friendly, no fuss service for a bike that was immaculately prepared and ran faultlessly. The Hornet looks good, goes well and is just a fun bike to ride."

"We used Superbike Rental for our recent Motorcycle trip around Europe and I have to say from the very first contact via e-mail up to being chauffer driven back to Brentwood station at the end of our trip, their service was nothing but excellent.

They provided us with our initial quote in a timely fashion, whilst two other companies didn't even respond to our enquiries!

The VFR-800 we hired was in good condition and caused us no problems in 3700 miles we covered. We will definitely use them again"
