Exhaust Control Valve

The exhaust system incorporates a variable Exhaust Control Valve (ECV) similar to the unit fitted to the CBR1000RR. It enhances both engine performance and efficiency as it opens at higher rpm and gives a pleasing exhaust-note ‘pulse’ at lower revs.2022 Honda CRF1100 AFRICA TWIN ADVENTURE SPORTS (DCT) TRI COLOUR

Choose your transmission

The Africa Twin is available with either a robust six-speed manual gearbox or an advanced, automatic shifting, six-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). DCT features four automatic modes that adjust the shift patterns to match your riding style or the conditions, and a manual mode that allows you to shift gears with triggers on the left handlebar. These triggers can also be used to override the automatic modes’ gear selection at any time.

Improved DCT

For 2022 the DCT provides smoother performance from a standing start and while manoeuvring at low speeds thanks to improved setting in first and second gears.

Cornering and incline detection

The six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) allows cornering and incline detection on DCT models. The IMU knows when the bike is cornering or on a steep incline and can adapt the gear shift pattern to give you better control and a more natural gear shift feel.

Inertial Measurement Unit

At the heart of the Africa Twin’s elevated on- and off-road performance is a Bosch MM7.10 six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) that measures six-axis of data and sends that information to other critical systems like HSTC, ABS, and wheelie control. These systems make adjustments in real-time to give you total control.

Riding modes

The Africa Twin has four default riding modes: Tour, Urban, Gravel, and Off-Road, plus two customizable User modes to cover any riding condition or situation. Each of these modes presets power delivery, engine braking, ABS settings, and HSTC torque control.

Assist Slipper Clutch

The aluminum clutch centre and pressure plate use assist cams to ease upshifts and slipper cams to prevent wheel lock-up during deceleration and downshifting.

Honda Selectable Torque Control

The Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) system comes with seven levels of torque control and an off setting. The IMU can determine when the rear-wheel starts to slip out and it will seamlessly modulate your torque control to keep you in that sweet spot during acceleration.

Wheelie control

The wheelie control system takes cues from the IMU to know when and how fast the front wheel is lifting and reacts accordingly. There are three levels of wheelie control, plus the ability to turn it off.

chassis & suspension

Capable and comfortable

The strength and rigidity balance of the steel semi-double-cradle frame helps to boost off-road ability while also reinforcing all-round on-road manners. The Africa Twin is engineered to handle the most rugged off-road adventures while providing the comfort of a touring motorcycle and the everyday competence of a great all-rounder or day-to-day commuter.

Aluminum components

A bolt-on aluminum subframe and aluminum swingarm help to reduce weight for improved handling and manoeuvrability.

Total control

To ensure a perfect fit for riders of different sizes, the Africa Twin boasts a two-position seat (870 mm standard and 850 mm in the low position) with an easy reach to the handlebar and a comfortable upright riding position. Standing or sitting, the Africa Twin keeps you in control.

Electronic suspension

The Showa Electronically Equipped Ride Adjustment (Showa EERA™) system adjusts damping force relative to the riding mode selected and aims to deliver superior suspension reaction in diverse and opposite conditions: comfort at slower speeds and stability at higher speeds.

ABS brakes

The Africa Twin’s ABS system works in conjunction with the IMU by compiling speed, deceleration, and lean angle data to prevent rear-wheel lock-up or rear wheel lift. This makes sure you can stop quickly and keep both wheels planted on the ground. There are on- and off-road settings, and rear ABS can be turned off in certain settings.2022 Honda CRF1100 AFRICA TWIN ADVENTURE SPORTS (DCT) TRI COLOUR

additional features

Take it with you

The Africa Twin comes equipped with a sturdy aluminum rear rack with built-in passenger grab rails, providing a secure location to strap on a weekend- or a weeks-worth of gear.

Multi Information Display

The Multi Information Display (MID) 6.5-inch TFT touch screen keeps you in control of the Africa Twin’s systems, including riding modes, suspension settings, HSTC, wheelie control, and ABS settings. The touchscreen is easy to use even when wearing gloves.2022 Honda CRF1100 AFRICA TWIN ADVENTURE SPORTS (DCT) TRI COLOUR

Improved protection

Designed for the long-haul, the expanded front fairing offers plenty of wind and weather protection, aided by the five-step height-adjustable windscreen and heated grips. The screen position and height have now been optimized for improved visibility and protection.

LED headlights and cornering lights

High-set dual LED headlights deliver a penetrating beam, and, for additional security, feature three-stage cornering lights that use speed and lean angle (controlled by the IMU) to automatically adjust illumination when cornering.

Smart turn signals

The front and rear turn signals are self-cancelling, but rather than using a simple timer, the system compares front and rear wheel speed difference and calculates when you've completed your turn or lane change.

Apple CarPlayTM and Android Auto

Both Apple CarPlayTM and Android Auto are now available with the use of a Bluetooth headset. Music, phone calls and navigation can be accessed through the touchscreen display or via handlebar controls. The phone plugs into a USB charging port on the right of the MID, or hands-free wireless Bluetooth connectivity is also an option.

Cruise control

Cruise control is a standard feature on the Africa Twin, making those long straights between trails all the more comfortable.
