Standard Features

Engine & Drivetrain
 Engineered to perfection  
    Four-valve Unicam cylinder head design has numerous performance benefits – including lighter weight and reduced gyro effect – while also contributing to the engine’s compact dimensions. A lightweight camshaft – using the same materials as the CBR1000RR’s 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. There’s a deep growl as the RPM rises that will be music to any motorhead’s 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.  
 Innovative functionality  
    The Africa Twin is available with Honda’s advanced Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). It features the standard manual mode – allowing the rider to shift gears with triggers on the left handlebar – and two automatic modes. D mode offers the best balance of fuel economy and cruising comfort, while S mode cranks up the performance. S mode even allows you to choose from three different shift patterns to match your riding style or the conditions.  
 Exceptional versatility  
    The Africa Twin’s DCT is specially engineered to handle off-road adventures, thanks in part to the G switch positioned on the right side of the instrument panel. Pushing the G switch in any riding mode provides an aggressive shift pattern that’s ideal for breaking the rear wheel loose in a sweeping dirt or gravel corner, or lofting the front wheel over an obstacle.  
 Breakthrough technology  
    Another benefit of the Africa Twin’s DCT is incline detection. Algorithms based on vehicle speed, engine speed, throttle input, and more, determine if the bike is ascending or descending a slope, and the system’s ECU selects the appropriate gear for climbing or engine braking.  
 Torque control  
    The Africa Twin even allows you to select from various levels of traction control. The Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) system adjusts the allowable rear-wheel slip through 3 levels (or off).  
Chassis & Suspension
 Perfected dual-purpose design  
    The Africa Twin’s 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 heavy items like the battery packaged at the rear of the cylinder head – contributes to agile handling.  
 Nimble handling and tight control  
    The chassis design allows for superior maneuverability, with a wide 43-degree steering angle and a tight 2.5-meter turning radius.  
 Superior suspension dynamics  
    The long-travel Showa 45 mm inverted 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 Twin’s 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.  
 Selectable suspension  
    The Showa rear shock’s hydraulic dial-style preload adjuster, combined with full adjustment for compression and rebound damping, makes it easy to change suspension performance to suit street or dirt riding.  
 Adventure ready  
    Like the CRF450R Rally, the Africa Twin uses 21-inch front and 18-inch rear spoked wheels, wearing 90/90-21 and 150/70-18 tires.  
 Superb braking system  
    Dual front radial-mounted Nissin four-piston brake calipers and 310 mm wave-style floating rotors provide strong braking force on pavement or dirt.  
 Proven Performance  
    Standard ABS provides confident braking control on all types of surfaces. The Africa Twin’s Adaptive Rear ABS Cancelling allows you to disable the rear-wheel ABS – a benefit in certain types of off-road riding. The system reverts to normal operation when the engine is restarted.  
Additional Features
 Durable construction  
    Following its design theme of “unlimited adventure”, the Africa Twin is styled with a minimum of bodywork in a tough, lightweight form that offers both weather protection for the rider and a slim, agile feel.  
 Distinct styling cues  
    Dual LED headlights give the Africa Twin an imposing presence while providing excellent nighttime illumination.  
 Ergonomic seating adjustment  
    A wide seat at the rear tapers to narrow at the front, which provides extra comfort when sitting plus an easy transition to standing when off-road. The seat can be raised or lowered through a range of 20 mm.  
 Excellent range capacity  
    A large 18.8-liter fuel tank, coupled with the engine’s excellent fuel efficiency, provides a range of up to 400 km.  
 Enhanced comfort and stability  
    Off-road-style tapered aluminum handlebar is strong yet lightweight, and is rubber mounted for reduced vibration.  
 True adventure design  
    An aluminum skid plate helps protect against damage from stones, rocks and other obstacles.  
 Advanced instrumentation  
    White-on-black LCD instrument panel is mounted high for easy legibility, even when standing.
