Development of 2020 CRF1100L Africa Twin

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.32 No.2

Summary

Ever since the revival of the model name in 2016, Honda Africa Twin has been well-supported by the customers as an adventure motorcycle enjoyable on off roads as well as for touring on pavement. After four years since the initial launch in 2016, a full model change has been conducted in this project, renewing everything from the engine, frame body, suspension to the exterior, gaining more power by the increased engine displacement while reducing weight of the complete motorcycle. Accordingly realized are the more off-road friendly Africa Twin, and the Africa Twin Adventure Sports more suitable for touring with abundance of extra equipment for long, comfortable rides.
