Honda’s Africa Twin break altitude record

by Keep Britain Biking

Honda’s CRF1000L Africa Twin has broken the record for the highest altitude reached by a twin-cylinder motorcycle.

A team of 5 riders took the adventure bikes up the Nevado Ojos del Salad, the world’s highest active volcano, which situated between Argentina and Chile.

The bikes reached an incredible 5,965 metres above sea level.

Enduro champion from Honda’s Sud American race team, Fabio Mossini was the man in the seat when the record was set.

The bikes were kitted out with Termigoni exhausts, new sprockets, Metzler MC360TM tyres and other Honda accessories to make sure the adventure was as safe and successful as possible.

It took less than 24 hours battling through mud, sand, gravel and ice to complete the decent back down the volcano.

Well done to the Honda team!
