CRF1100 Africa Twin

CRF1100 Africa Twin

READY FOR EVEN BIGGER ADVENTURES

Lighter. More powerful. And with more features than ever—that’s the new 2020 Africa Twin. Ready for even bigger adventures. Happy to carry you even farther. And offering the Honda quality, ruggedness and dependability you need when you’re miles from home. We’ve taken what we think is the world’s best adventure bike and made it even better, adding a whole suite of features including cruise control and a large touch-panel multi-information display that’s Apple CarPlay™ compatible.

Our standard Africa Twin is a great choice for serious off-road enthusiasts. And if you’re into a little long-distance adventure touring, our Africa Twin Adventure Sports ES models are loaded with even more features, like electronically controlled suspension, an adjustable windscreen, larger fuel tank, heated grips, tubeless tires, and more. Let’s get out there and ride!

DESIGN



TAKE YOUR ADVENTURE ON TOUR.

When you’re in the saddle all day, day after day, little things can be a big deal.

In redesigning the Africa Twin Adventure Sports, we’ve focused on comfort, because that big fuel tank will take you a long way. The expanded front fairing offers extended wind protection, while the height-adjustable screen reduces helmet buffeting. And to improve safety, the new dual LED headlights feature Daytime Running Lights (DRL) for consistent daytime visibility. They also incorporate Cornering Lights which – dependent on speed and lean angle – automatically illuminate corner blind spots. Heated grips warm hands while cruise control deals with large distances; there’s also an ACC charging socket. And tubeless tyres mean easy roadside repairs.

FEATURES


​​

TFT TOUCH SCREEN DISPLAY

Engage with the journey. A full-colour 6.5-inch TFT touch-screen offers immersive selection of riding modes and easy control of navigation and Bluetooth smartphone/audio connectivity. Apple CarPlay® allows seamless mirroring and management of iPhone apps or calls via the touch screen.

FULLY LOADED FOR THE LONG-HAUL.

Time to explore? There’s no better partner for your travels, wherever the road leads.

We’ve readied the Africa Twin Adventure Sports with practical features to help you go long. Really long. And it’s also packed with technology in support of your journey. Like the Africa Twin it has four pre-set riding modes and two customisable user modes, dynamic Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) control, HSTC, Cornering ABS and Wheelie Control all easily managed through the TFT touch screen, with Apple CarPlay® and Bluetooth connectivity also at your fingertips.

Optional SHOWA EERA™ suspension

When you come to choose your new Africa Twin Adventure Sports – and because who knows where the open road’s going to lead – there’s the option of SHOWA ELECTRONICALLY EQUIPPED RIDE ADJUSTMENT (SHOWA EERA™) for optimum suspension settings all the time. Three pre-set modes cover all scenarios between touring, city and off-road riding. Rear spring preload can also be adjusted electronically while stationary to suit load, whether riding solo or with pillion and luggage.

Optional Dual Clutch Transmission

Our unique Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) is also an option when you make your choice, with automatic and manual shifting as well as G switch (selected via the TFT touchscreen) which for off-road riding reduces the amount of clutch slip during gear changes to help initiate sliding of the rear wheel.

ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE


MORE POWERFUL 1100CC ENGINE

When you’re loaded, with passenger and luggage, you need an engine that responds strongly to every input, especially for passing. So we’ve tuned an extra 5Kw/5Nm of peak power and torque into the parallel twin-cylinder powerplant and lifted performance throughout the rev-range. A new cylinder head, throttle body and ECU deliver precise throttle control.

PARALLEL-TWIN ENGINE LAYOUT

The Africa Twin’s parallel-twin engine layout makes the bike shorter front-to-back. That means the front wheel can tuck in closer to the engine, shortening wheelbase and making the bike more nimble off road and on pavement.
