Go the Distance
The call of the wild can come at any time. When it does, you need to be prepared for it. The CRF1000L Africa Twin Adventure Sport is not scared of the worst roads in the world. There’s nothing that can hold it back, or you for that matter. North, West, East or South, whichever horizon you point it at, this motorcycle is equipped to take you anywhere. How far you want you go with it, is entirely up to you.
The Africa Twin Adventure Sports has a large capacity fuel tank, long travel suspension for greater ground clearance and better weather protection. Throttle By Wire comes with 3 ride modes – and an additional G mode, for going off road – plus a host of other innovative features to take you further than you’ve ever gone before.
The Road Less Travelled
You can go much further between fuel stops – a range beyond 500km – now that the Africa Twin Adventure Sports has a larger fuel tank. Just what you want when petrol stations are few and far between on those more adventurous excursions.
Suspension that works for you
You get excellent long-travel performance and control from the 45mm Showa cartridge-type inverted front forks, with a suspension length of 252mm – up 20mm on the previous Africa Twin – and are fully adjustable with rebound and compression damping.
An adjustable ride
The seat is designed and shaped for off-road use with a flatter profile. It’s 30mm taller than the CRF1000L and adjusts 20mm to either 900mm or 920mm, so you can find a riding height that suits you best on dirt or tarmac.
Roll on, roll off
Power and performance is delivered by Throttle By Wire via 3 rider modes to adjust the engine’s character and the bike's traction. The engine management electronics suite features Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) and Engine Brake (EB).
