XRV750 - two wheeled Humvee
Flasher switch failed.
Fuel pump failed.
Engine CDI failed.
The Africa Twin ceased production in 2003, but they are becoming a bit of a legend. Way before the BMW GS series they were THE bike to trek around the globe on. Big and heavy, they still survived big crashes and are very reliable.
Not the most amazing performance, but 0-60 in less than 6 seconds is good enough for me, with a 115mph top speed, though cruising at 85mph is its main strength. Will give nearly 50mpg at these speeds.
Huge road presence, which even car drivers take notice of.
Will probably go on forever. 100,000 miles out of these engines without a rebuild is very common.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
