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?


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.

All roads are accessible with 3 rider modes.

Everything is at your fingertips; just choose the ride that suits your mood, your ability and the conditions.

Rider Modes

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.

Personal Settings

A fourth mode – USER – allows the rider to set and save a preferred combination of Power, Engine Braking and HSTC levels. On DCT models, 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.

A range of rides

A standard manual mode allows gear changing using a trigger on the left handlebar. D mode offers the best balance of fuel economy and cruising comfort, while S mode gives three different, sportier shift patterns.

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.

Manual transmission

The CRF1000L also has a model available with a robust 6-speed gearbox for those who prefer a hands-on ride at all times. It uses the same shift-cam design as the CRF450R for instant gear changes and works through a light, aluminium assist slipper clutch. A quickshifter is available as an option on both transmissions.

Greater Detail

Take a closer look at the unique features that make an Africa Twin Adventure Sport the stuff of legend.

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 fork. They have 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. There’s also a useful rear-side pocket that’s tucked away at the side and a lower seat is available as an accessory.

Roll on, roll off
Power and performance is delivered by Throttle By Wire via the 3 rider modes to adjust the engine’s character and the bike's traction. The engine management electronics package includes the Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), which has 7 levels, and Engine Braking (EB).

Looking good to go
The sharp and focussed features of the Africa Twin, integrates super-bright, twin headlights with full LED lighting and a bright tail stoplight at the rear. The LED indicators have a new warning stop function in case of a hard stop. In an emergency, they’ll flash to warn road users behind.
