New Honda

Pearl Glare White (ES only)

Forged Through Toughness

The Africa Twin just got an upgrade. It's still the amazingly agile Adventure bike it has always been – with performance to push to the limit – but with extra low-down torque for drive. A new adjustable screen makes those on-road days much more comfortable. Tubeless tyres are easily repairable. And, the Electronic Suspension option of the Africa Twin ES, with Showa-EERA™, opens a whole new horizon of adventure.

CRF1100L Africa Twin ES

We’ve pressed the upgrade button. Firmly. The Africa Twin ES packs Showa Electronically Equipped Ride Adjustment (Showa-EERA™) which means optimum damping settings, all the time. Want a perfect base setting? Choose Mid. There’s also Hard, for progressive riding, touring, or carrying a pillion and luggage, Soft for easy manoeuvrability and Off-Road for precise suspension reaction away from tarmac. User allows total customisation (when stationary) and you can swap between modes – and adjust rear spring preload – while riding. The Africa Twin ES also packs heated grips and an ACC socket as standard.
