    2018 Honda® Africa Twin

    Let the true adventure begin

    Features may include:

    Engine & Drivetrain
    • Powerful Performance

    The CRF1000L Africa Twins 998 cc parallel-twin fuel-injected engine draws heavily from iconic Honda off-road racing bikes, including the CRF250R and CRF450R.

    • Engineered to perfection

    Four-valve Unicam cylinder head design has numerous performance benefits including lightweight and reduced gyro effect while also contributing to the engines compact dimensions. A lightweight camshaft using the same materials as the CBR1000RRs camshaft operates the valve train.

    • Dual spark

    Twin sparkplugs in each cylinder help to produce rapid, thorough combustion.

    • Distinctive sound and feel

    A 270-degree phased crankshaft gives the engine a distinctive sound and feel almost like a V-twin while helping to produce strong and linear power and instant response anywhere in the rev range. Theres a deep growl as the rpm rises that will be music to any motorheads ears.

    • Clever design integration

    The dry-sump oil system with internal tank reduces engine height. Combined with the Unicam cylinder head and other design elements, this contributes to an extremely low engine height, which in turn results in generous ground clearance.

    • Lightweight architecture

    The water pump is housed within the clutch casing, and the water and oil pumps are driven by a shared balancer shaft, all of which reduces engine size and weight.

    • Maximized airflow

    Forward-mounted air intakes feed a large airbox. Dual air filters can be changed without removing fuel tank, and the system is designed to minimize the risk of dirt or other debris entering the engine when servicing the filters.

    • Dynamically responsive

    The six-speed manual gearbox is both lightweight and robust it uses the same shift-cam design as found on the CRF250R and CRF450R to ensure positive changes. Plus the all-new throttle-by-wire system and addtition of three new selectable riding modes (Tour, Urban, Gravel) deliver the right performance to match your riding style and conditions. An assist slipper clutch helps to maintain traction during downshifts or deceleration.

    Chassis / Suspension
    • Perfected dual-purpose design

    The Africa Twins chassis is engineered to handle the most rugged off-road adventures, while also providing the comfort of a touring motorcycle and the everyday competence of a great all-rounder or day-to-day commuter.

    • Strength and agility

    The semi-double-cradle steel frame uses oval-shaped tubing for extra strength without extra weight.

    • Balanced handling characteristics

    Careful attention to mass centralization with wide footpegs and the Lithium-ion battery packaged at the rear of the cylinder head contributing to agile handling.

    • Nimble handling and tight control

    The chassis design allows for superior manoeuvrability, with a wide 43-degree steering angle and a tight 2.5-metre turning radius.

    • Superior suspension dynamics

    The long-travel Showa 45 mm inverted stainless steel fork offers full spring preload, compression damping and rebound damping adjustment, and was designed specifically for a leading-axle wheel and radial-caliper mounting.

    • Engineered functionality

    The Africa Twins Pro-link rear suspension design positions the shock lower at the front of the aluminum swingarm, lowering C of G even further and allowing designers to keep the seat/tank area above the shock as slim as possible.
