Honda will provide two Africa Twin CRF1000L adventure motorcycles to the production support of the National Geographic Channel program "Riding Morocco: Chasing The Dakar".
The program will include Australian fashion model Laura Csortan and she will join veteran rally driver Christophe Barriere-Varju who has raced in Dakar four times, twice in Africa and twice in South America.
The program will traverse through the lands of Morocco, which used to be part of the older Dakar Rally route, previously called Paris-Dakar Rally. They will shoot the program in the picturesque valleys and breathtaking sceneries.

The duo will take viewers through a bike journey and show them the bike ride of a lifetime. Christophe will share his experience and demonstrate the manual gearbox of the Africa Twin and Laura will be riding the DCT model which rides without the clutch operation.
Honda's DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) technology will maintain the same feel as the manual gearbox, however, it will relieve the rider of using the clutch and gear shifting operation.
