BORN IN THE DESERT. READY FOR ANYWHERE.
It’s time. Time to soar. To be truly free and feel your tyres bite into dirt, seeking the grip and escape you need. The motorcycle beneath you is a tool, your tool. And you ride together as one. This is Africa Twin. Forged through the furnace of countless kilometres. For the ride of a lifetime.
PURE OFF-ROAD PERFORMANCE
The Africa Twin is designed to push limits. Sharp and agile handling in the dirt – whether storming a high-speed gravel trail or trickling up a rocky climb – is thanks to a lightweight main frame and CRF450R-style aluminium swingarm matched to long-travel Showa 45mm inverted front fork and remote reservoir rear shock.
MORE POWERFUL 1100CC ENGINE
Peak power and torque are up by 5Kw/5Nm and the parallel twin-cylinder engine is stronger, everywhere in the rev-range. Intake-exhaust efficiency has been carefully optimised with new Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and throttle body feeding a redesigned cylinder head, giving enhanced throttle feel and crisp response.
DUAL LED HEADLIGHTS WITH DRL
Instantly recognisable, with hard-edged signature stare, the new dual LED headlight delivers a penetrating beam and also features dual Daytime Running Lights (DRL), that automatically adjust to ambient light intensity improving safety no matter the conditions.
TFT TOUCH SCREEN DISPLAY
You’ll be fully engaged here. 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.
CORNERING ABS AND ESS
The IMU-controlled ABS manages braking force relative to lean angle, speed of deceleration and front and rear wheel slip ratio maintaining traction to the limit of adhesion. Lift of the rear wheel is also controlled. There’s an off-road setting and the rear brake ABS can also be switched off. The Emergency Stop Signals (ESS) indicate a hard-stop situation to those behind.
New chassis, bodywork and riding position ensure off-road control.
Because control is everything in the dirt. So we completely redesigned the Africa Twin’s chassis and a lighter main frame; aluminium CRF450R-style swingarm and bolt-on aluminium rear subframe are matched to adjustable long-travel Showa front forks and rear shock. The riding position, too, is tailored for sitting and standing with high-set handlebars and contoured, slimmer seat width. Taut rally-style bodywork is equally slim with compact front fairing and screen. Dual headlights are full LED and have automatic DRL technology for piercing and consistent daytime visibility.
ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY TO PUSH LIMITS.
You like a challenge. So do we.
A real test of what and where is possible. So we’ve built the new Africa Twin to push limits. The engine’s increased cubic capacity boosts mid-range torque – with an extra 5Nm peak for linear, relentless drive – and brings with it an extra 5kW peak power. A competition-style exhaust breathes freely with a highly-tuned crackle.
A 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) constantly monitors dynamic movement for precise management of Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), Wheelie Control and Engine Brake through four default riding modes and two customisable user modes. Cornering ABS provides increased security on-road and features an off-road setting and rear ABS switch-off.
When you’re not scanning the trail ahead, you’ll be looking at the Africa Twin’s dash – so we’ve given it a 6.5-inch TFT touch screen display, with Apple CarPlay® and Bluetooth connectivity. The Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) option offers manual and automatic shifting, as well as G switch setting for more direct drive when the road runs out.
