2023 Honda Africa Twin Adventure Sports: 100% REAL.

Introducing the 2023 Honda Africa Twin Adventure Sports…

TRUE ADVENTURE NEVER ENDS
Start with the amazing abilities of the Africa Twin. Add a long-range fuel tank and the comfort to go with it plus new, improved, shorter screen and vibrant Cracked Terrain paint options – inspired by the original Africa Twin – and you have the Africa Twin Adventure Sports. The ultimate bike for the long haul.

It’s been well over three decades since the Honda XRV650 Africa Twin first rolled into Europe and while the motorcycle that now bears its name – launched in 2016 as the CRF1000L Africa Twin – was a brand-new motorcycle from the wheels up, it fully inherited the essence and spirit of what made the original so popular.

It was the balance between power and weight that was at the heart of the original bike’s appeal, just as it was for the new model. With its unique, athletic appearance, an enjoyable, usable engine and capable, comfortable chassis, the CRF1000L Africa Twin proved itself a true modern-day all-rounder and has been hugely popular with round-the-world adventurers, around-town commuters and weekend tourers alike, with over 85,000 units sold.

2018 saw the Africa Twin, in both manual transmission and Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) form, receive Throttle By Wire (TBW) control plus 4 riding modes, expanded Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) options, as well as intake and exhaust development for improved engine response and sound. The platform also expanded: the Africa Twin Adventure Sports – with the same updates but featuring improved wind protection, greater tank range and longer-travel suspension – extended the machine even further into long-range off-road territory.

For 2020, the introduction of a bigger capacity, longer stroke 1084cc engine marked another landmark in the evolution of the Africa Twin. The CRF1100L Africa Twin* itself was comprehensively redrawn with an aggressive, compact rally style and even sharper off-road focus. Meanwhile, the touring comfort, technology and ability of the CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports were also further enhanced – including the option of the cutting-edge Showa Electronically Equipped Ride Adjustment (Showa EERA) suspension.

Although there are no specification changes for 2023, the addition of a new Mat Iridium Gray Metallic colour adds further to the Africa Twin Adventure Sports’ appeal.

The CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports shares the frame, engine and riding position of the off-road focussed CRF1100L Africa Twin but has a role very much of its own: to offer riders real continent-crossing long-haul ability and practicality both on and off-road. This comes in the shape of a large 24.8L fuel tank, extensive wind protection (from both the fairing and fairing side panels), height-adjustable screen, large engine sump guard, aluminum rear carrier plus tubeless wheels and tires. ACC charger and heated grips are also standard fit.

There’s 75kW power with 105Nm torque available from the1,084cc parallel twin cylinder engine, while the steel frame is the foundation of its handling prowess; it also uses a bolt-on bolt-on aluminum subframe. The aluminum swingarm references that of the CRF450R moto-crosser.

A six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) controls not only the 7-level HSTC but also 3-level Wheelie Control, cornering ABS (with off-road setting), Rear Lift Control and DCT cornering detection. There are four default riding modes: URBAN, TOUR, GRAVEL and OFF-ROAD.

For cutting edge suspension damping front and rear the Africa Twin Adventure Sports is also available with Showa EERA as an option. Four default modes – SOFT, MID, HARD and OFF-ROAD – cover every type of riding situation, and there’s a USER mode for further fine-tuning. Rear spring preload can also be adjusted while stationary.

Tailored for complete control, the riding position features a slim-section seat and high-set handlebars. Dual LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) feature three-stage Cornering Lights – that automatically adjust the field of illumination depending on the lean angle, giving optimum visibility for improved safety. Cruise control and heated grips are standard-fit. A full colour Multi Information Display (MID) 6.5-inch TFT touch screen brings immersive engagement with the machine’s systems, plus Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto® and Bluetooth connectivity.

For 2023 the CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports will be available in the following paint options:

  • **NEW** Mat Iridium Gray Metallic
  • Pearl Glare White

 

Powerful 1100CC Engine
The twin-cylinder engine delivers instant response when you need it, four riding modes tailor output to conditions.

Smartphhone Connectivity
Keep in touch with the world while exploring it, listen to music or use your device’s navigation apps through Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto® Bluetooth® connectivity and helmet headset.

DRL and Cornering Lights
Safety is always important, to you and your passenger. Daytime Running Lights emit piercing visibility marking your road position to other users. Cornering Lights use speed and lean angle to automatically fill in blind spots through a turn.

Real Adventure Sports Ability
Ready to go long? A 24.8L fuel tank delivers extended fuel range and, for those huge horizon-to-horizon days, cruise control, heated grips and ACC/USB charging sockets all make a big difference.

Showa Electronically Equipped Ride Adjustment
Wherever your adventure leads, on any terrain, for perfect suspension reaction optional Showa Electronically Equipped Ride Adjustment manages damping force relative to riding mode selection.

Revised Windscreen
We’ve made the 5-way adjustable screen shorter, opening up visibility, but have ensured it offers the same aerodynamic efficiency and wind deflection as before.

A WHOLE WORLD TO RIDE
Travel moves you. Changes you. New places. People. Experiences. A lifetime of memories. Every journey starts with a feeling of anticipation of what’s to come and ends with a tinge of nostalgia, an innate desire to start planning all over. With its long-range ability and all-round capability, the Africa Twin Adventure Sports opens up a whole world to ride. And will move you like nothing else.

Ready to Go Long
Where to next? That’s up to you. 24.8L of fuel gives a potential range of over 500km. Great when you’re not sure where the next petrol station is. The new 5-way adjustable windscreen is shorter, opening up the view forward but carefully angled so that along with the upper fairing offers the same excellent protection. And because who knows what the weather will be like tomorrow – or around the next corner – heated grips take the cold out.

nstant Response and DCT Option
Out on a long-range tour, fully loaded, you need instant acceleration for overtaking. No hesitation. The twin-cylinder engine offers a muscular output, precise throttle connection and advanced riding technology such as HSTC and Wheelie Control. You can keep it simple, using four default riding modes, or get personal and set the engine your way. Six-speed DCT is also an option for relaxed automatic or rapid manual shifting.

Standard SHOWA or SHOWA EERA
Whether you’re riding off-grid, off-road or two-up and fully loaded on tour, there are two suspension setups for you to choose between; high-quality, adjustable 45mm Showa inverted front forks and rear shock or the addition of Showa Electronically Equipped Ride Adjustment (Showa EERA) for optimum damping settings all the time. It’s easy; SOFT, MID and HARD settings cover all scenarios between touring and sports, and there’s an OFF-ROAD setting. A USER option allows a custom setup and rear spring preload can also be adjusted electronically.

Safely Showing the Way
Riding all day, it pays to see and be seen. Stylish, dual LED headlights look great and feature Daytime Running Lights (DRL) that automatically adjust to ambient light intensity and give a bright, highly visible light, alerting other road users of your presence and improving safety. Additional Cornering Lights use speed and lean angle to automatically illuminate blind spots when cornering in the dark. And, over 50km/h, Emergency Stop Signals (ESS) indicate a hard-stop situation to those behind, adjusting to suit road conditions.

2023 Honda Africa Twin Adventure Sports Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Styling & Equipment

  • Protective bodywork with compact, height-adjustable screen
  • 8L fuel tank, aluminum insert panels, rear rack and engine bash plate
  • Daytime Running Lights (DRL) with Cornering Lights
  • Cruise control, heated grips and ACC charger
  • Multi Information Display (MID) 6.5-inch TFT touch screen
  • Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® allow use of a smartphone through the MID

Designed for the long-haul, the Africa Twin Adventure Sports has an extensive front fairing with 5-level adjustable screen – a compact design that opens up vision while still offering plenty of wind and weather protection. Sharing the 850-870mm seat height of the Africa Twin, the 1182mm handlebars give an upright, high-visibility riding position and comfortable control, whether standing or seated.

The tail section is extremely slim, and the narrow seat carefully contoured to allow easy back and forth movement as well as good ground reach. Holding 24.8L, the fuel tank offers a potential range of over 500km, thanks to fuel economy of 4.9L/100km (20.4km/L) MT and 4.8L/100km (20.8km/L) DCT (WMTC mode). A large engine sump guard and aluminum rear carrier are included in the specification.

Dual LED headlights are set high, delivering a penetrating beam and also feature Daytime Running Lights (DRL) that automatically adjust to ambient light intensity, improving safety, no matter the conditions. For additional security, the CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports features three-stage Cornering Lights that use speed and lean angle (controlled by the IMU) to automatically adjust the area illuminated when cornering. Large knuckle guards are standard.

The full colour Multi Information Display (MID) 6.5-inch TFT touch screen keeps the rider in control of all of the Africa Twin Adventure Sports’ systems, with each of the riding modes­ selectable through the top left of the screen. The MID can also be customized to show various levels of information relative to the riding mode chosen and is easy to use even when wearing gloves.

It also incorporates Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto®, allowing use of a smartphone through the touchscreen. Navigation apps can also be accessed and displayed and, via a Bluetooth helmet headset, calls can be made or received. The smartphone itself plugs into a USB charging port on the right of the MID. Hands-free wireless Bluetooth connectivity is also an option and all control inputs are made from the left-hand switchgear.

The front and rear indicators have an Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) function. When braking suddenly over 50kph the hazard lights flash to warn other road users a hard stop is in process. The indicators include an auto-cancel function; rather than using a simple timer, the system compares front and rear wheel speed difference and calculates when to cancel the indication relative to the situation. The auto-cancel feature can be switched off using the MID. Standard-fit cruise control eases long-distance highway travel.

For 2023, the CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports will be available in two paint options. The Pearl Glare White Tricolor continues for 2023, with its classic, evocative  colour scheme and striking gold wheels. It is joined by a stylish new Mat Iridium Gray Metallic, with black wheel rims.

 

 

Engine

  • 1,084cc twin-cylinder engine gives 75kW peak power and 105Nm peak torque
  • Unicam 8-valve head and semi-dry sump
  • Variable Exhaust Control Valve (ECV) offers an engaging low-rpm sound and high-rpm performance

The Africa Twin Adventure Sports’ 1,084cc, 8-valve parallel-twin engine produces 75kW @ 7,500rpm and peak torque of 105Nm @ 6,250rpm. Bore is set at 92mm with 81.5mm stroke and compression ratio of 10.1:1. 46mm throttle bodies feed the inlet ports and the bore and cylinder pitches are aligned to create a smooth air intake profile. The ECU setting and injector angle work in unison to deliver a direct spray into the twin-spark combustion chambers.

Honda’s SOHC Unicam valve train is a feature of the MX competition-specification CRF450R and the low-set position of the cast camshaft contributes to the compact nature of the cylinder head and entire engine package; inlet valves are 10.1mm diameter, exhaust valves 9.3mm. aluminum cylinder sleeves save weight while the 270° phased crankshaft and uneven firing interval create the engine’s signature ‘throb’.

The crankcases are split horizontally; the water pump is housed efficiently within the clutch casing with a thermostat integrated into the cylinder head. Manual and DCT versions of the engine share common crankcases with only minor external differences; the water and oil pumps are both driven by the engine’s balancer shafts.

It’s a semi-dry sump design with in-tank lower crankcase oil storage. This allows a lower pan depth that keeps overall engine height low. As the pressure-fed pump is located within the tank where it delivers its oil from, there is no need for a pressure-feed passage. Secondary vibrations are neutralised by the mutually reciprocating motion of the pistons, while primary inertial and coupling vibrations are cancelled by the use of biaxial balance shafts.

The aluminum clutch centre and pressure plate use ‘assist’ cams to ease upshifts and ‘slipper’ cams for deceleration and downshifting; with the change to the 1100cc engine for 2020, the clutch diameter was reduced in size compared to the previous design, with reduced spring tension for lighter lever feel. The six-speed manual gearbox uses the same shift-cam design as found on the CRF450R to ensure positive changes. A quickshifter remains available as an optional extra.

The exhaust end-can features a variable Exhaust Control Valve (ECV), very similar to the unit fitted to the Fireblade. It offers enhanced engine performance and efficiency as it opens at higher rpm and gives a pleasing exhaust note ‘pulse’ at lower rpm.

 

Engine & Chassis Management Electronics

  • IMU-managed HSTC intervention levels have focus on off-road use
  • Wheelie Control features 3 levels and IMU management
  • Four riding modes: TOUR, URBAN, GRAVEL and OFF-ROAD
  • Two USER modes allow for complete riding modes customisation

Throttle By Wire (TBW) management and a six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)* are at the heart of the electronic package. The system offers 4 levels of power and 3 levels of engine braking. There are seven levels of Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) with each level’s amount of intervention being optimised to work with real-time input (yaw/roll angle and rate) from the IMU. The spacing of the levels is optimised to allow the rider a finer choice of the amount of rear tyre slide for off-road riding. HSTC can also be turned off completely.

Wheelie Control is another feature. With the IMU measuring pitch angle and rate, and controlling engine torque via TBW, the rider can choose between 3 levels of input. Level 1 allows for intended wheel lift but suppresses any sudden movement. Level 3 stops any front wheel elevation and level 2 is mid-way between the two. Wheelie Control can also be turned off completely.

There are four default riding mode settings: TOUR, URBAN, GRAVEL and OFF-ROAD to cover most riding conditions and situations plus two customisable USER settings. Even within the default riding modes, it’s possible to change some parameters – HSTC between levels 1-7 (plus off), Wheelie Control between levels 1-3 (plus off) and DCT S mode shift pattern levels 1-3.

 TOUR employs the highest level of Power (1), for touring loaded with pillion and luggage plus mid-range Engine Braking (2) with active on-road cornering ABS.

URBAN suits wide-ranging riding requirements and uses mid-level Power (2) and Engine Braking (2) with active on-road Cornering ABS.

GRAVEL delivers the lowest level of Power (4) and Engine Braking (3). Cornering ABS is active with an off-road setting; in this setting, the rear brake ABS cannot be switched off.

OFF-ROAD uses lower-mid level Power (3) and the lowest amount of Engine Braking (3). Cornering ABS is active with an off-road setting; the rear brake ABS can be switched off.

USER 1 & 2 modes offer the rider a choice of two distinct personalized setups – choosing between Power levels 1-4 and Engine Braking 1-3, plus HSTC, Wheelie Control and ABS (on-road/off-road) parameters. USER 1 starts out with level 2 Power and Engine Braking, USER 2 uses level 4 Power and 3 Engine Braking.

 

 

Chassis

 Lightweight frame, with bolt-on aluminum subframe and light, rigid CRF450R-style swingarm for outstanding rear wheel traction and feel

  • A six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit is housed in the centre of the machine
  • Cornering ABS provides sure-footed feel and features an off-road setting

At the very heart of the Africa Twin Adventure Sports’ elevated on and off-road performance is a Bosch MM7.10 six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) tucked away at the centre of the machine, that measures – in real-time – roll angle/rate, pitch angle/rate and yaw angle/rate. It aids the management of rear wheel traction via TBW and HSTC, front braking grip through cornering ABS, front wheel lift through Wheelie Control and also adds Rear Lift Control.

The strength and rigidity balance of the steel semi-double cradle frame revolves around boosted off-road ability – at the same time reinforcing its all-round on-road manners. Rigidity around the steering head is optimised to enhance feel for front end grip; the main spars are slim and straight with no front cross pipe. Ground clearance is 250mm, with wheelbase of 1575mm and rake and trail of 27.5°/113mm. Wet weight is 238kg, with DCT at 248kg. The Showa EERATM adds a further 2kg in both Manual and DCT guises.

A bolt-on aluminum subframe allows a width of 195mm – crucial for easier ground reach. The lightweight aluminum swingarm – taking its direction from the design used by the CRF450R – improves rear wheel traction and rider feel.

To tailor damping force front and rear – and spring preload to suit load and riding conditions – Showa Electronically Equipped Ride Adjustment (Showa EERA) is an option on the Africa Twin Adventure Sports. Showa EERA adjusts damping force relative to riding mode selected and aims to deliver high-quality suspension reaction in diverse and opposite conditions – riding comfort at slower speeds and stability at higher speeds.

Input is gathered from stroke sensors plus Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). There are three road settings: SOFT has the lowest damping force for smoothest reaction, versatile MID operates as an all-round setting with HARD, using the highest damping force through low-to-high stroke speed, designed for sportier riding.

There is an OFF-ROAD setting that gradually raises front fork damping force as stroke speed rises and uses higher damping settings for the rear shock.

Rear spring preload can be electronically adjusted while stationary, through four default settings; 1) riding solo, 2) riding solo with luggage, 3) riding two-up and 4) riding two-up with luggage. A USER option allows for fine-tuning of damping force front and rear and 24 points of rear spring preload.

The Africa Twin Adventure Sports is also available with standard Showa suspension. With stroke length of 230mm, the 45mm cartridge-type inverted front fork offers long-travel bump absorption and features revised internal settings to improve all-round performance. Rebound and compression damping are fully adjustable. A cast aluminum top yoke and forged bottom yoke – with a hollow aluminum stem shaft – clamp the fork legs with two bolts each top and bottom.

Matching the front suspension, the Showa rear shock delivers 220mm axle travel and features a 46mm cylinder and remote reservoir for stable damping control under extreme off-road riding conditions. Spring preload can be adjusted via a dial on the shock body; rebound and compression damping are also fully adjustable.

The swingarm pivot points’ inner plates use 600MPa high-strength steel and the upper cross tube that connects them acts as the rear shock upper mount (through a pillow-ball joint) improving feel for rear wheel traction.

The IMU takes in lean angle, deceleration (from front/rear wheel speed sensors) and incorporates the slip rate of the front and rear wheels to manage braking pressure through the ABS; likewise if it detects sudden rear wheel lift, it finely controls brake force to maintain stability. When stationary the rear ABS can be cancelled for off-road riding.

Compact two-piece radial-mount four-piston calipers work dual 310mm ‘wave’ floating discs through sintered pads. The rear 256mm ‘wave’ disc features hole punching and shaping. 21/18-inch front rear (stainless steel) spoked wheels wear 90/90-21 and 150/70-18 tires. Block pattern tires (Continental 90/90-21M/C 54S and 150/70B 18M/C 70Q, rated at 180km/h and 160km/h respectively) are approved for fitment.

To make puncture repair easier when on tour the 21/18-inch front and rear (stainless steel) spoked wheels wear tubeless Bridgestone Battlax Adventurecross Tourer AX41T or Metzeler Karoo Street tires, sized 90/90-21M/C 54H and 150/70R18 M/C 70H. Block pattern tires (Continental 90/90-21M/C 54S and 150/70B 18M/C 70Q are also approved for fitment).
