Alguna vez se han preguntado cómo se entrega una moto… pues hoy voy a Honda Canarias Y veremos en que tipo de caja llega… la hermosa Africa Twin Hello, good morning. We are here at Honda Canarias, and today we are going to show you the work behind the delivery of a new Africa Twin. Here we have a unit that arrived from Japan in a container, they take about a month and a half Here we can check out the model, a CRF1000, directly from Japan Here we have the identification tag with the code to ship it to the Canary Islands, made in Japan and here we have one more time the bike code and the color code too, this one is red. And we have the frame bike number too. I introduce José, he is the one in charge to unbox the bike… Well, as you can see.. this is how the Africa Twins arrive from the fabric They come with the accesories in a box here to save space. It brings the front wheel disassembled. Now we proceed to take down the metal frame. and take the accesories In that box we have the mirrors, wind shield etc. As you can see its a meticulous work We have to be careful because this bikes have an owner and we have to treat them carefuly the bike comes attached to the metalic box in various spots: the back wheel, the handlebar in two point, that avoids damage to the bike during the shipping. The bike is well grabbed as you can see Know we are going to use the wing
jack to lift the bike to put on the front wheel, that is the first step of the process to work in it Now the bike is completly free from the cage And thanks to the wing jack it will stand on its own Here is the verification list we must complete Its a document where the mecanic has the steps to follow, a check list… Here we can see the careful work that Honda does when they pack up the different accesories, we have the mirrors, that they will be assebled now… A lid that will cover the battery and the wind shield While José puts on the front wheel I am going to explain some specifications from the bike When it arrives from the fabric it comes with a minimum of gas in the tank The battery comes unplugged. Thats because we don’t know the time it takes to be delivered It can initially take up to two months And then the time it takes to be sold We have a battery prepared here… that we have charged previously so we can conect it and use the bike This battery comes uncharged and needs about six hours to be fully charged Here we have the bike manual of the Africa Twin with some basic tools These bolts will be used to mount the windshield These other four are for the brakes and these for the front wheel So now we have the front wheel assembled the brake caliper secured It is important that these parts are mounted with their specific torque In this case, it would be 6 kilos.
Then, the brake caliper four and a half each, and the prisioners two point two. As you can see, José is checking out once he has mounted the wheel and the brakes there is no leak or air in the break system and that the bike brakes perfectly. This is a 2018 model. Compared to the 2017 version it has some changes, the first one, and for me the most important one is the electronic accelerator, with no cables any more which gives us more sensation while accelerating It will also give us more control of the power we want to deliver and manage the power and breaking that is one of the main differences. Another change is the exhaust. Before it had three chambers and now it has only two… we get better sounding engine with less retentions Also… the bike is two cm taller thanks to the front shocks we can see the color is different to the 2017 model… the shock has a more bronze color while the 2017 was more gold color. Now we are going to check the space under the seat where we put the bike manual and an allen key so we can access to the tools case and the battery We can configurate the seat in two different heights this is the standard one… and through a specific anchorage and some skills… we can check we have a different height and we have the bike two cm lower for shorter riders to take the plastic we need to remove the back seat that way we dont leave plastic behind this is the factory battery, exactly the same as the other one. we put this one to try the bike important, the Africa Twin comes with a lithium battery we can’t charge the battery with a common charger It has an specific lithium charger Once the battery is installed, we can check the system We can see the new display, that has changed from the previous model We have just one screen with all the information here we can check the electronic set up of the bike Traction control, with seven different levels to choose. EB, electric brake, with three levels and power, with also three levels It has also different basic driving styles User: that we configurate for ourself Tour: for trips on the road Urban; for the city And a gravel mode for the off roads Before starting up the bike we have to check out some configurations We have to check the oil, very important to check the levels If the bike from fabric comes with low oil we have to refill it It comes normally with the correct levels here we can check the oil level We also checked the chain tension and that it is greased Once we checked everything and we put in some gas we are ready to start the bike and listen to it And the final step every customer wants: the liscense plate and we are ready to go Thank you from here, Honda Canarias, José and I, for following the unpackaging of the new Africa Twin Now you know a bit more about the work behind every delivery Hope you enjoy the video and you liked it
