FORGED THROUGH TOUGHNESS
The greater the challenge, the greater the reward. We say bring it on. Inspired by the legend of Dakar with hard-hitting performance, blacked-out detailing and sharp new graphics straight from a rally racing stage, the CRF1100L Africa Twin is born to perform when the going gets tough.
Aggressive Rally Design
Racing runs through our DNA. Tightly wrapped, aggressive rally-style bodywork wears stunning new paint options drawn from our Dakar-winning CRF450 RALLY.
Pure Off-Road Performance
Designed to push to the limit, no matter the terrain. Explore sharp, agile handling from a lightweight chassis and supple, long-travel Showa suspension.
Powerful Twin-Cylinder Engine
1100cc of low-down torque, muscular mid-range and searing top-end power linked by a fine throttle connection that enhances your feel for rear tyre traction.
TFT Touch Screen Display
A colour 6.5-inch screen puts full intuitive management at your fingertips and offers Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto® and Bluetooth® smartphone connectivity.
Advanced Riding Technology
Our 6-speed DCT is an option, newly optimised for perfect off-road control. A smooth automatic mode, it also offers fast, easy manual shifting. Cornering ABS increases security and has an off-road setting.
Rear Carrier Standard
Practicalities matter, even on a bike as focused as the Africa Twin. To allow you to fit a top box – or soft luggage – suitable for your next adventure a sleek, black rear carrier comes as standard-fit.
OWN THE MOMENT
We know exactly what you need: maximum performance and minimum weight, thanks to the smaller tank, and a lighter, more agile body. Push on where others fail; perfect for a variety of off-road riding conditions. But it is a straightforward proposition – it’s all down to you, and your motorcycle. Be prepared to take on new and more adventurous riding. It’s why we built the Africa Twin. We know what it can do.
A Compact Powerhouse
The SOHC, 8-valve twin-cylinder engine produces 75kW at peak with 105Nm torque. But it’s the way this engine responds that thrills. With a 46mm throttle body fed by optimised ECU settings the connection between your right hand and rear tyre is pinpoint precise. So, whether hunting out grip on gravel or scything a set of switchbacks, you have ultimate performance at any rpm.
Designed to push to the limits
The main frame and aluminium CRF450R-inspired swingarm are both lightweight and rigid. And, for precise suspension reaction, the 45mm Showa inverted front forks adjust for rebound and compression damping. Operating through Pro-Link, the Showa rear shock adjusts for compression and rebound damping, and also spring preload via a dial on the shock body.
Control is what the Africa Twin gives you and at its heart a 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) monitors the motorcycle under braking, cornering and acceleration. And this results in razor-sharp management of 7-level HSTC, as well as 3-level Wheelie Control and Cornering ABS. You’ve got four default riding modes – URBAN, TOUR, GRAVEL and OFF-ROAD – plus two full-custom USER options to put the bike you want in your hands.
Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT)
You can choose your Africa Twin with manual six-speed transmission or our innovative six-speed DCT, which can mean zero-stress and smooth, automatic shifting. Of course, you have the option to switch to lightning-fast manual control using the left-hand trigger-shifters, perfect for changing or holding gears off-road. DCT is also newly optimised for low-speed use in first and second gears and, for when the road runs out, a press of the G switch (on the TFT display) reduces clutch slip, elevating rear wheel traction and feel.
