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.
