Africa Twin Sports

Forget Africa-come explore New Zealand on this ideal twin!

You’re ready for this. Hard-riding, free-range and off-grid. Built without compromise and on experience of decades the new CRF1100L Africa Twin leaves the rulebook in its roost.

Heritage of the Africa Twin combined with new technologies makes the new 1100 a ride you will never forget and be an envy of those back home listening to your stories.

The twin-cylinder engine is larger 1084cc and produces 7% more peak power, 6% more peak torque, which makes it much stronger everywhere in the rev range.

The 2020 Africa twin is smaller, slimmer and 4kg lighter than its predecessors. This allows you to take adventure riding to another level and experience what New Zealand has to offer, especially with 6 riding modes to work with. Other features include HSTC, cruise control, Cornering ABS and Wheelie Control and a TFT touch screen display.

“If your off-road skills and confidence are not up to scratch, but you want the comforts and luggage capacity afforded by a large adventure machine, while still getting out and amongst serious terrain that will challenge your mettle, then you won’t do it easier on anything else.”
