2020 Africa Twin

Forged Through Adventure

Forged Through Adventure

It's time. Time to soar. To be truly free and feel your tyres bite into dirt, seeking the grip and escape you need. The motorcycle beneath you is a tool, your tool. And you ride together as one. This is Africa Twin. Forged through the furnace of countless kilometres. For the ride of a lifetime.


Because control is everything in the dirt. So we completely redesigned the Africa Twin’s chassis and a lighter main frame; aluminium CRF450R-style swingarm and bolt-on aluminium rear subframe are matched to adjustable long-travel Showa front forks and rear shock. The riding position, too, is tailored for sitting and standing with high-set handlebars and contoured, slimmer seat width. Taut rally-style bodywork is equally slim with compact front fairing and screen. Dual headlights are full LED and have automatic DRL technology for piercing and consistent daytime visibility.

Model Features

Pure Off-road Performance

The CRF1100L is designed to be pushed. Hard. A more powerful 1100cc parallel-twin engine churns out 5kw more power with new Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and throttle body giving enhanced throttle feel and crisp response.

Technology at your Fingertips

A full-colour 6.5-inch TFT touch-screen offers immersive selection of riding modes and easy control of navigation and Bluetooth smartphone/audio connectivity, with Apple CarPlay® enabled.

All-day Vision

Dual LED headlights with Daytime Running Lights (DRL) automatically adjust to ambient light intensity improving safety no matter the conditions. Ride with confidence knowing the road ahead is illuminated.

Stop on a Dime

IMU-controlled ABS helps adjust braking force and rear-wheel lift for various conditions, with Emergency Stop Signals (ESS) indicating a hard-stop situation to those behind.
