The Africa Twin comes equipped with Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) System. The Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) machine gives you a choice of Manual and Automatic gear shifting to suit tarmac, dirt tracks and steep mountain passes. Africa Twin is also fully equipped to operate in an off-road environment, and its functionality is enhanced by the G-Mode. Pushing the G-button in any riding mode modiﬁes the control of the clutch system to give a more direct drive.
Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) system comes as standard and controls the engine’s torque output by detecting differences in the slip ratio between front and rear wheels. The standard Anti-Locking Braking System and traction control offer multiple driving modes for different conditions. It’s possible for the rider to turn off the ABS system for the rear brake, allowing the rider to lock the rear wheel when riding off-road. There are four levels of control to choose from the Honda Selectable Torque Control: Level 1, 2, 3 and Off.
The CRF1000L Africa Twin is propelled by parallel twin-cylinder engine tuned to make 65Kw (87 BHP) of peak power @ 7,500 rpm and 92Nm torque @ 6,000 rpm. The inverted cartridge type fully-adjustable front forks come with a 230 mm stroke with a range of rebound and compression settings. With a class-leading 250 mm ground clearance, riding this bike off-road is a glide.
The motorcycle has been priced at INR 13,06,927 (ex-showroom New Delhi).
