The new Skidmarx Tall Flip Up Screen for the Honda CRF1000 Africa Twin is now available to make long journeys more comfortable by providing more protection from wind and airflow.
Since the Africa Twin name was re-introduced in 2015 it’s become a popular dual adventure bike. And as a blend of off-road adventure machine and tourer, you’ll probably want to travel sizeable distances on it. Plus this style of bike also tends to attract taller riders, which room for those over 6ft to enjoy it. But it can mean you suffer from air pressure buffeting and wind noise at motorway speeds. And that gets unpleasant over time.
The Skidmarx Tall Flip Up Screen for the Honda CRF1000 Africa Twin helps to improve the situation. It’s made from 4mm cast acrylic to avoid flexing, and created in the UK by Skidmarx. And by being 10cm (4 inches) taller, with a flip-up edge, it directs air flow away from your chest and head when riding. So you reduce the pressure on your body and the buffeting for your crash helmet.
If it’s something that you’re interested in, there’s more good news. The Skidmarx Tall Flip Up Screen for the Honda CRF1000 Africa Twin will fit directly onto the original mountings of the bike. So you don’t need to mess around drilling or cutting anything, and don’t have to add brackets or fixing kits. That’s also good news when it comes time to sell your Honda, and you might want to refit the original screen. Which should be in good nick if you’ve replaced it, before it gets chipped and damaged.
And the Skidmarx Tall Flip Up Screen for the Honda CRF1000 Africa Twin is available in clear, light and dark tints depending on your preference. Each version costs £69.95.
