The call of the wild. It’s hard to ignore it when you’re riding the Africa Twin. It’s a name inseparable from
the spirit of Dakar, on a bike that’s as impressive as the desert itself.
In 1986 the incredible NXR750 made its debut at the Dakar Rally and the dream of winning the most
demanding off road race in the world came true. We went back and did it again in ’87, ’88, and ’89, and
the knowledge and experience we gained from winning went into the original XRV650 Africa Twin which
later became the now legendary XRV750 Africa Twin. That same passion for racing and the philosophy
of learning from it continues to help us make all our production machines better. This is what we mean
when we say, ‘Made by Honda’ and, after four years of development, it’s at the very heart of the new
CRF1000L Africa Twin.
True to its roots, which are ﬁrmly embedded in Dakar history, the Africa Twin is also a comfortable tourer as
well as a practical commuter – but when you hear that call – it’s strong and agile enough to take you across
the more challenging terrain of roads less travelled. True adventure awaits, go ﬁnd it.
The strong 998 cc parallel twin has the
Unicam® head design as its competitive
It delivers handfuls of torque so satisfying
it will tempt you to break free from the
tarmac at the
Dual spark plugs per cylinder, a lightweight camshaft –
made from the same material proven in the Fireblade –
and a 270° phased crankshaft, give this bike a distinctive
feel and character all of its own. It’s like a drumbeat. The
linear response, when you roll on and off the throttle, will
lift your spirit even more when you hear that unmistakable,
off road, 4-stroke growl.
Wrapped in a steel double-cradle frame, the engine’s
compact dimensions allow other components to be
mounted closer to the machine’s centre; centralising the
mass and lowering the centre of gravity. With a class
leading 250 mm ground clearance for off road excursions,
riding this bike feels like second nature.
There’s nothing to hold you back. This unique, light and
agile combination of power and handling not only sets new
standards for adventure bikes; it will set you free.
From the moment you grip the handlebars you’ll just want to ride, and keep on going.
Similar to the CBR1000RR Fireblade, the new Africa Twin also features an aluminium assist slipper clutch, to help stop the rear wheel from
locking up under fast downchanges. In addition to the manual 6-speed model, you can choose optional Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT)
which gives you a choice of manual or automatic gear-shifting to suit tarmac, dirt tracks and steep mountain passes.
In ‘MT’ manual mode the gears can be changed manually, through a lightweight 6-speed gearbox, using up and down triggers
on the left handlebar. Then, there are four ‘AT’ automatic modes; ‘D’ mode, which is ideal for cruising and maximising fuel
economy, and ‘S’ Sport mode, with three progressively more sporty shift options: S1, S2 and S3.
With a higher ‘S’ mode selected, the engine holds higher revs before shifting up and down through the gears. So, when
the mood takes you, or where the road and track demands it, you get a much more exciting and sportier ride.
When the going gets tough, the Africa Twin really gets going. Hit the ‘G’ switch on DCT models and traction is
improved throughout all modes. There’s also a unique incline detection feature – just what you need when faced
with a loose, steep track or dune - so you’ll be in full control of any situation.
The Africa Twin’s DCT, Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) and ABS not only work in unison, but
they can be independently set to give you 80 different possible combinations. In other words, you can
adapt the Africa Twin’s response to suit your own skill level and to whatever the conditions demand.
No other bike of its type can do this. Up or downhill, on or off road, the Africa Twin is the perfect
companion wherever the journey takes you.
Where the road ends, adventure begins.
That’s when you’ll really appreciate how compliant the 45 mm Showa front forks really are. With a
230 mm stroke – the longest in its class – these inverted, cartridge type forks are fully adjustable with
a good range of rebound and compression settings. The rear shock, coupled with our proven off
road Pro-Link system and lightweight swingarm, has a class leading 220 mm travel. The rear
shock is also fully adjustable with an easy to operate, hydraulic spring preload adjustment.
This allows you to make quick changes – no tools required – as the load, the road and
weather conditions change.
The ABS brakes feature twin 310 mm ‘wave’ style ﬂoating front discs with Nissin
4-piston radial calipers for plenty of feel and strong stopping power. Rear disc is a
256 mm ‘wave’ style with a 1-piston caliper. Wheels are a rugged spoked type
21 inch front and 18 inch rear – just like the CRF450 Rally – suitable for ﬁtting
a wide range of road and off road tyres. Another feature taken straight
from our off road machines is the rubber mounted handlebar clamp.
This dramatically reduces any vibration and shock no matter what the
road conditions. We’ve also incorporated a unique brass dynamic
damper in the handle bar, to control vibration and help reduce arm
fatigue on a long haul.
With new bar end weights and knuckle guards up front, the
Africa Twin has a tough, purposeful and determined look
you just can’t argue with.
The look of the new Africa Twin says true adventure.
It’s slim, tough bodywork truly reﬂects the sharp lines of off road inﬂuence
and attitude. Light and agile with a good degree of weather protection, it’s
also an ideal machine for practical weekday commuting. The height of the
comfortable seat can be adjusted from 870 mm down to 850 mm, whilst the
upright riding position makes easy work of town trafﬁc.
The slim design disguises the 18.8 litre fuel tank which, combined with a fuel
efﬁcient engine, can take you up to 248 miles; that’s a lot of adventure!
Of course, it wouldn’t be an Africa Twin without the dual headlights - LED in
this case. When lit, they evoke memories of those Dakar winning machines.
The rear mudguard and tail light is sharp; underlining it’s off road intentions.
The LCD instrument panel displays information vertically, so there are no
distractions looking from side-to-side. Information is arranged in deﬁnite
clusters, making it easy for the eye to pin-point relevant information quickly
at speed, or off road, where you really need to focus on the ground ahead.
The LCD display can also be adapted to display a reading to suit your own
If you’re stopped on a hill, or off-camber, it can be tricky and awkward if
you can’t put both feet on the ground. A 4-position ‘Lever-Lock’ parking
brake system on DCT models gives you more conﬁdence when the bike is
stationary. Hill starts, even with a fully loaded machine, are as easy as pulling
away from the lights.
The windscreen and front cowl are designed to deﬂect the full force of the
wind. This not only reduces the buffeting effect when you’re touring at high
speed, but with clever air ducts positioned just in front of the display unit,
it helps maintain stability at higher speeds too.
The Africa Twin is ready to take you to another world, where fun and hardship
often go hand in hand. Where strange, uneven roads, desert tracks,
and unexplored pathways just can’t be ignored. You’ll always ﬁnd a way,
and once you’ve found it, you’ll know what ‘True Adventure’ really is.
