CRF1100L Africa Twin DCT Electronic Suspension 2024


Model Description

The Africa Twin just got an upgrade. It’s still the amazingly agile Adventure bike it has always been – with performance to push to the limit – but with extra low-down torque for drive. A new adjustable screen makes those on-road days much more comfortable. Tubeless tyres are easily repairable. And, the Electronic Suspension option of the Africa Twin ES, with Showa-EERA™, opens a whole new horizon of adventure.

More Muscular Performance

Torque is what finds drive in the dirt. It’s what brings the instant acceleration needed for safe overtaking, especially when two up and loaded. So, we’ve given the OHC liquid-cooled twin-cylinder engine 7% more, with much stronger performance off the bottom and through the middle of the rev-range. And, thanks to higher compression ratio, new valve timing and updated intake and exhaust there’s no loss of power – 75kW (101 hp) at peak – with the precise response and feel of Throttle By Wire control.

To Push Limits

Riding off-road is about finding the balance to push. Which is exactly what this chassis does. The formula is precise; a lightweight steel frame, CRF450R-inspired aluminium swingarm and bolt-on subframe provide the right rigidity and feedback for traction. Long travel Showa suspension – 230mm stroke front, 220mm rear – with updated settings absorbs rough terrain, and there’s huge 250mm ground clearance to clear obstacles. For pinpoint setup the rear shock, operating through Pro-Link, is fully adjustable for compression and rebound damping. A new Electronic Suspension version of the Africa Twin is now available.

For Every Adventure

The Africa Twin is loaded with electronics that make the ride more enjoyable and safer. No matter the route. 7-level Honda Selectable Torque Control – managed by a 6-Axis IMU – monitors rear wheel traction and smoothly gathers up drive on- or off-road. 3-level wheelie control gives just the front wheel lift you want, while cornering ABS inspires full braking confidence. Four default riding modes, URBAN, TOUR, GRAVEL and OFF-ROAD are set ready but you can go fully custom, across all of the parameters, in USER mode.

Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT)

You can choose your Africa Twin with six-speed DCT, which means zero-stress, smooth, automatic shifting up and down, great for long distance riding. It’s newly updated, for a natural feel on launch, and at low speeds. Customisable, from relaxed to ultimate sports performance. You can also switch to manual control using the left-hand trigger-shifters. And, when riding off-road, a press of G switch (on the TFT display) reduces clutch slip, boosting rear wheel traction and feel.
