CRF1100 Africa Twin Adventure Sports

True Adventure Never Ends

True Adventure Never Ends

Go Beyond

The new Africa Twin Adventure Sports ES is something special. More mid-range torque for strong overtaking acceleration. A 19-inch front wheel, wearing a 110/80-19 tyre, lower seat height and Showa-EERA™ Electronic Suspension work together to deliver impeccable on-road handling. And, to make full use of the 24.8L fuel tank, a new fairing and screen provide wind protection for those long, enjoyable days in the saddle. Which is just what this bike is built for.


This bike is built to go long and beyond, and every update makes it big-distance ready. Showa-EERA™ Electronic Suspension offers perfect damping control, and you can swap between modes – and adjust rear spring preload – as you ride. The 19-inch front wheel delivers more front-end grip, alongside lower centre of gravity. Seat height is lower and adjustable, tool-free between 835-855mm and the seat itself has been redesigned, thicker with an 8% larger area, for the extended riding range that the 24.8L fuel tank makes possible. There’s also the comfort of 5-level height adjustable screen, heated grips, practicality of ACC and USB sockets and full connectivity to access your smartphone’s navigation apps.

Model Features

Refined Performance

Two up and loaded you need torque for effortless overtaking. The engine now has 7% more torque through the midrange, thanks to higher compression ratio and optimised intake and exhaust.

All-Day Aerodynamics

We’ve sculpted the new upper fairing to channel airflow around the upper body, reducing fatigue on longer journeys. The screen height adjusts through 5 stages for flexible wind protection.

19-inch Front Wheel

The new, smaller diameter wheel plus wider 110/80-19 tyre offer increased front-end grip and feel, alongside improved manoeuvrability at all speeds.
