Have you ever heard of a Honda Africa Four? Me neither. That’s because it’s a custom super enduro made by Swiss dealer Brivemo Motos. It’s like they are a group of people that just can’t get enough of a good thing.
Similar in style to KTM’s 950 Super Enduro made from 2006 to 2008, Brivemo’s Africa Four is a beast of machine made for serious open throttle dual sport riding. Using a wide variety of components from other machines, Brivemo calls its creation the Africa Four CRF1000R.
The name is derived from the original base bike and its engine. This gave the Africa Four a claimed 145 HP. Brivemo retained the single-sided swingarm to continue with a more custom look.
They then grafted on a Honda CRF450R front fork which resulted in an increase in wheelbase. A large single front disk with a four-piston caliper was added to the front. The CB1000Rs original wheels were retained, but the tires were changed to Continental TKC-80s for some off-road grip.
The cat was removed and a shortened carbon fiber exhaust was added. This gives the bike a far more aggressive look and may have even added some performance. Rounding out the changes are projector beam headlights, a single saddle, a high front mudguard, wider aluminum handlebars, toothed footpegs, and an engine protection guard.
All of these changes result in a unique and aggressive looking dual sport machine. Brivemo claims that the Africa Four CB1000R comes in at 200 KG. They do not say whether that is dry or wet weight. Nonetheless, they have created a machine that looks like it would be a hoot to ride.
