Africa Twin: The call of the wild

When you hear it, be ready.

The Africa Twin is the perfect companion and will go anywhere with you – town or country. It has Throttle By Wire that comes with 3 ride modes and on DCT models, there’s an additional G mode for going off road – plus a host of other innovative, new engine components to take you further than you’ve ever gone before. The mighty CRF1000L is ready when you are.

Don’t let the end of a road stop you.

There’s nothing that can hold back the CRF1000L Africa Twin, or you for that matter. Take it through town, escape for a weekend ride or a touring holiday – with a bit off off-road thrown in of course. Whichever you choose, this motorcycle is equipped to take you anywhere. How far you want you go, is entirely up to you.

Take a closer look at the unique features that make an Africa Twin the stuff of legend:

High visibility

The new, rally-style LCD instrument panel position has been revised to allow the rider to see all ride modes and information clearly at a glance, night or day, on the road or on the dirt, even from a standing position.

Looking good to go

The sharp and focussed features of the Africa Twin, integrates super-bright, twin headlights with full LED lighting and a bright tail stoplight at the rear. The LED indicators have a new warning stop function in case of a hard stop. In an emergency, they’ll flash to warn road users behind.

Suspension that works for you

You get excellent performance and control from the 45mm SHOWA cartridge-type inverted front fork. They have a stroke length of 230mm and are accompanied by the Showa rear shock, which allows 220mm of axle travel; both are fully adjustable with rebound and compression damping.

Pipes and power

The revised 2 into 1 exhaust system not only sounds good, as you roll on the power and increase the revs, it looks good too. Combined with a modified airbox on the intake side, the mid-range response is better than ever.
