2017 Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin vs. KTM 1090 Adventure R

Getting in a little Bonneville action on a dry lakebed outside of Las Vegas, the Honda was able to accelerate right with the KTM until MO Editorial Director Sean Alexander switched the 1090 Adventure R to Sport Mode. Then the KTM delivered superior drive and was able to fly right past the Honda. Both machines are comfortable at top speeds in excess of 110 mph.
