The call of the wild can come at any time.
When it does, you need to be prepared for it. 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. For the final touch, we’ve given it special colours to celebrate and commemorate the bike’s 30th anniversary. It’s all looking good to go… you ready?

Life is not a guided tour
An adventurous spirit is hard to contain.
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.
CRF1000L’s new engine has a lighter balance shaft and a revised inlet and exhaust system to improve mid-range torque. It’s a combination that delivers an eager and energetic response - on demand. Together with the engine management control package, this machine instils great confidence when riding across all kinds of terrain, in the city, the country or the desert.
Light and compact
The engine not only contributes to the increased ground clearance, but also to rider comfort. It’s held by 6 hangers, keeping vibration to a minimum. The chassis – a semi-double cradle steel – is strong and with outstanding versatility between high-speed touring and genuine off-road ability.
All roads are accessible with 3 different rider modes.
Everything is at your fingertips; just choose the ride that suits your mood, your ability and the conditions.
There are three set combinations: TOUR employs the maximum Power setting and provides mid-range Engine Braking combined with a high HSTC level. URBAN uses mid-level Power setting with the same settings as TOUR for HSTC and EB.
A fourth mode – USER – allows the rider to set and save a preferred combination of Power, Engine Braking and HSTC levels. For best off-road performance hit the G button; used in any riding mode, it modifies the clutch control giving a more direct drive through the Dual Clutch Transmission.
Dual Clutch Transmission
As the name implies, there are two clutches, independently controlled by their own electro-hydraulic circuit. One is for starting, 1st, 3rd and 5th gears and the other for 2nd, 4th and 6th, so when a gear is selected they switch through one to the other. It’s slick, quick and eliminates shift-shock – keeping the bike stable – as you go up, or down, through the gears.
