2024 Honda Africa Twin: RUGGED AND RELIABLE.

Introducing the 2024 Honda Africa Twin…

The CRF1100L Africa Twin, with standard Showa suspension

The 2024 CRF1100L Africa Twin carries a strong focus on core off-road ability, with the look and feel of a slim rally machine. For 2024 the 1,084cc parallel twin cylinder engine has been tuned – via intake, combustion and exhaust development – to produce more low and mid-range torque, and a 7% increase of peak torque to 112Nm; peak power remains at 75kW.

Africa Twin features a rugged steel frame, CRF450R-derived aluminium swingarm, chassis geometry, suspension travel and ground clearance, all of which are unchanged. A new, but important addition for 2024 is the adoption of tubeless – rather than tubed – tires, which allow for easier repairs without the need to remove the wheel.

Also, to make long-range road riding more comfortable, mounted to an updated, aggressively-designed front fairing, a new larger 5-way adjustable screen offers maximum forward visibility or increased wind protection depending on rider choice.

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) and Rear Lift Control. There are four default riding modes: URBAN, TOUR, GRAVEL and OFF-ROAD.

Tailored for complete control, the riding position features a slim section seat, and high-set handlebars. Dual LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) give optimum visibility, improving safety and Cruise Control is a 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.

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 tires are easily repairable.

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 for 2016 as the CRF1000L Africa Twin – was a brand-new machine 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 light 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 bearing the ‘Africa Twin’ name sold since its return.

2018 saw the Africa Twin, in both manual transmission receives Throttle By Wire (TBW) control plus 3 riding modes, expanded Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) options, and intake/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 territory.

For the 2020, the introduction of a bigger capacity, longer stroke 1084cc engine marked another landmark in the evolution of the Africa Twin.

At the same time the CRF1100L Africa Twin itself was comprehensively redrawn with an aggressive, compact rally style and even sharper off-road focus. Alongside the increase in power and torque from the engine, it was also significantly lighter – in keeping with the first principles set out all those years ago.

The 2024 CRF1100L Africa Twin will be available in three paint options that all feature bold ‘mountain’ graphics:

2024 Honda Africa Twin Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

Model updates: Honda’s hard-charging off-road adventurer moves forward with extra low-down torque output for its 1084cc, twin-cylinder engine. Redesigned upper fairing, seat unit and larger 5-way height adjustable screen, plus the addition of tubeless tires. A full electronics package employs a six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit to manage riding modes and HSTC as well as Cornering ABS, Wheelie Control, Rear Lift Control, USB port and standard fit cruise control. The full colour 6.5-inch TFT touchscreen incorporates Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Bluetooth connectivity. Four tailor-made Genuine Honda Accessory Packs – Urban, Rally, Travel and Adventure – are ready to create the perfect traveling partner.

 

Standard Fit Tubeless Tires
Sometimes, mid-adventure, small details matter: 21-inch front/18-inch rear rims now wear tubeless tires, with a revised spoke design, for easy roadside repairs.

6-Axis IMU Dynamic Management
An Inertial Measurement Unit monitors – in a split second – the Africa Twin under braking, cornering and acceleration, providing a premium riding experience synonymous with Africa Twin.

TFT Touch Screen
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible for all smartphone functions, with fully customisable colour 6.5-inch display.

Stronger 1100cc Twin-Cylinder Engine
7% more torque – thanks to tuned intake and exhaust systems – equals responsive acceleration, especially when fully loaded, producing a richer sound.

Off-Road Balance
From gravel tracks to gnarly climbs, the Africa Twin makes it easy thanks to long travel suspension, light weight, and honed chassis geometry.

Extra Wind Protection
The taller, wider screen adjusts through 5 positions for maximum forward visibility or maximum wind protection – you choose.

More Muscular Performance
Torque is what finds drive in the dirt. It’s what brings the instant acceleration needed for safe overtaking, especially when two up and loaded. So, we’ve given the OHC liquid-cooled twin-cylinder engine 7% more, with much stronger performance off the bottom and through the middle of the rev-range. And, thanks to higher compression ratio, new valve timing and updated intake and exhaust there’s no loss of power – 75kW (101 hp) at peak – with the precise response and feel of Throttle By Wire control.

To Push Limits
Riding off-road is about finding the balance to push. Which is exactly what this chassis does. The formula is precise; a lightweight steel frame, CRF450R-inspired aluminium swingarm and bolt-on subframe provide the right rigidity and feedback for traction. Long travel Showa suspension – 230mm stroke front, 220mm rear – with updated settings absorbs rough terrain, and there’s huge 250mm ground clearance to clear obstacles. For pinpoint setup the rear shock, operating through Pro-Link, is fully adjustable for compression and rebound damping.

For Every Adventure
The Africa Twin is loaded with electronics that make the ride more enjoyable and safer. No matter the route. 7-level Honda Selectable Torque Control – managed by a 6-Axis IMU – monitors rear wheel traction and smoothly gathers up drive on- or off-road. 3-level wheelie control gives just the front wheel lift you want, while cornering ABS inspires full braking confidence. Four default riding modes, URBAN, TOUR, GRAVEL and OFF-ROAD are set ready but you can go fully custom, across all of the parameters, in USER mode.

 

Options available
Available with a 58L plastic Top Box (with room for 2 full-face helmets) which has new redesigned decorative stripes, or a 42L Aluminium Top Box, the Urban pack also features a Carrier Bracket, Backrest and inner Bag. The main stand makes for straightforward rear wheel/chain maintenance, while the Heated grips and 12V Socket provide added comfort ride (fitted as standard to the Africa Twin ES).

Rally Pack
Rally Pack – colour and transmission type dependent
Designed to build-in enhanced off-road durability and performance, with wide Rally Footpegs for extra leverage and control and Engine Guards/Radiator Grill to minimise damage. For the Africa Twin with manual transmission a Quickshifter is included. Colour-matched Knuckle Guard Extenders add weather protection, Wheel Stripes an exclusive splash of colour.

Travel Pack

2024 Honda Africa Twin Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Chassis

  • Lightweight frame, with bolt-on aluminium subframe and light, rigid CRF450R-style swingarm for outstanding rear wheel traction and feel
  • Six-axis Bosch IMU control; cornering ABS provides sure-footed braking and features an off-road setting
  • 21/18-inch wheels now mount tubeless tires

Standard fully adjustable Showa setup; 45mm cartridge-type inverted front forks offer long-travel bump absorption with internal damping settings that provide high-quality on and off-road performance. A cast aluminium top yoke and forged bottom yoke, joined by hollow aluminium stem shaft, clamp the fork legs with two bolts each top and bottom. The Showa rear shock features a 46mm cylinder and remote reservoir for stable damping control in even the most extreme off-road riding conditions. Spring preload can be adjusted via a dial on the shock body.

 

The strength and rigidity balance of the steel semi-double cradle frame revolves around outstanding 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 231kg

 

A bolt-on aluminium subframe allows the CRF1100L Africa Twin to be narrow under the rider, at only 195mm which is crucial for easy ground reach. The lightweight aluminium swingarm – taking its direction from the design used by the CRF450R – maximises rear wheel traction and rider feel. 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.

 

At the very heart of the Africa Twin’s all-round 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. It is also integral to the functioning of the EERATM suspension.

 

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. There is an off-road ABS setting and, when stationary the rear ABS can be cancelled completely for off-road riding if required.

 

Compact two-piece radial-mount four-piston calipers work dual 310mm ‘wavy’ floating discs through sintered pads. The rear 256mm ‘wavy’ disc features specific hole punching and shaping for optimal rear wheel control.

 

21 inch front and 18 inch rear (stainless steel) spoked wheels wear 90/90-21 and 150/70-18 – now tubeless rather than tubed, which allow for easier repairs without the need to remove the wheel. Metzler Karoo Street 90/90-21M/C 54H and 150/70-19-R18M/C 70H are approved as OEM tires. Block pattern Michelin Anakee Wild 90/90-21M/C 54R TL and 150/70-18M/C 70R TL tires are also approved for fitment.

 

Engine

 

  • 1,084cc, twin-cylinder engine generates an extra 7% torque at 112Nm peak, with stronger power and torque in the low to mid-rpm range
  • Compression ratio raised to 10.5:1, alongside development of ECU settings, valve timing, intake and exhaust
  • Unicam 8-valve head, semi-dry sump and slipper clutch

 

The 1,084cc, 8-valve parallel-twin engine produces 75kW @ 7,500rpm with peak torque increasing to 112Nm @5,500rpm (up from 105Nm @ 6,250rpm). Bore remains 92mm with 81.5mm stroke; compression ratio is now 10.5:1 (from 10.1:1). There are significant gains in output of both power – and especially torque – off the bottom and through the middle of the rev-range when compared to the previous model.

 

CRF1100L Africa Twin Power and Torque comparison

 

 

The airbox intake ducts go from 29mm diameter to 35mm, to draw in more air, while the two internal trumpets that feed air from the airbox are both an extra 65mm longer. 46mm throttle bodies feed the inlet ports and the bore and cylinder pitches are aligned to create a smooth air intake profile. There are new, optimised ECU settings and the injector angle delivers 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 in diameter, exhaust valves 9.3mm. Valve timing has been revised to match the engine’s new tune. Aluminium cylinder sleeves save weight while the 270° phased crankshaft and uneven firing interval create the engine’s desirable signature ‘throb’ and character.

 

The crankcases are split horizontally; the water pump is housed efficiently within the clutch casing with a thermostat integrated into the cylinder head. Manual  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.

 

The engine features 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 aluminium clutch centre and pressure plate use ‘assist’ cams to ease upshifts and ‘slipper’ cams for deceleration and downshifting. The six-speed manual gearbox uses the same shift-cam design as found on the CRF450R to ensure positive changes.

 

The exhaust muffler has been updated internally to match the changes on the intake side and improve driveability. Lighter than the previous design its new internal structure delivers enhanced engine performance and gives a pleasing exhaust note ‘pulse’ at lower rpm. Another 2024 revision is a tune of the high-rpm sound for a more ‘bass’ filled note.

 

Engine & Chassis Management Electronics

 

  • IMU-managed HSTC intervention levels allow 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 customisation

 

Throttle By Wire (TBW) management and the six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) are at the heart of the electronic package. The system – updated for 2024 with refined feel – 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 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. Like HSTC, 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 further 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) .

 

TOUR employs the highest level of Power (1), for touring 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.

Styling & Equipment

 

  • New 5-way height adjustable screen and upper fairing extend on-road comfort
  • Compact body style designed for off-road, with slim seat and high handlebars
  • Multi Information Display (MID) 6.5-inch TFT touch screen, Apple CarPlayand Android Auto compatible
  • Bluetooth connectivity, Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and Cruise Control

 

Aggressive and compact. Two words that sum up the CRF1100L Africa Twin’s taut rally-style bodywork. And it’s for a reason – to work better off-road. It’s been redrawn a little sharper for 2024, with a new front fairing and rear seat unit. Plus, the addition of a new, 5-stage height adjustable screen makes longer road rides, or commuting in and out of town, more comfortable.

 

As before, seat height adjusts between two settings, 850/870mm and the high-set 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 is carefully contoured to allow good ground reach and easy back and forth movement while an aluminium rear carrier is standard fit for convenient carrying ability.

 

Holding 18.8L, the fuel tank offers a potential range of over 380km, thanks to fuel economy of 4.9L/100km 20.5km/l in MT.

 

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. 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 CRF1100L Africa Twin’s systems, with each of the riding modes­ selectable through the top left of the screen. The MID can also be customised to show various levels of information relative to the riding mode chosen and is easy to use even when wearing gloves.

 

The MID 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. They also auto-cancel; 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 and standard-fit cruise control eases long-distance highway travel.

 

A new high-performance, lightweight and compact lithium-ion battery is standard fit, contributing to mass centralisation.

 

Accessories

 

  • Huge range of Genuine Honda Accessories ready to go, from tank pads to full Pannier/Top Box luggage solutions and each a perfect fit for the Africa Twin
  • Accessories are available individually or in dedicated accessory packs
  • Rally, Adventure, Urban and Travel Packs make perfect customisation easy

 

For a bike like the Africa Twin – which is going to cover a lot of ground, on or off-road – accessories really matter to an owner. And the range from Honda grows year on year with each part, no matter how small or large, driven by customer use, designed by R&D engineers in Japan and manufactured in Honda centres around the world to exacting standards.

 

It’s easy, too for a new owner to tailor their Africa Twin via the accessory pack system. Based on four distinct profiles of application they also, thanks to complete compatibly, allow almost limitless customisation options using the packs and individual parts, to build an owner’s ultimate Africa Twin.

 

Rally Pack

Designed to enhance the off-road durability and performance. The pack features wide Rally Footpegs for extra leverage and control and Engine Guards/Radiator Grill to minimise damage. For the Africa Twin with manual transmission a Quickshifter is included. Colour-matched Knuckle Guard Extenders add weather protection, Wheel Stripes add an exclusive splash of colour that complement the overall look.

 

Adventure Pack

Ready for the long haul. New Front Side Pipes protect bodywork and are constructed from 25mm stainless steel with a polished, electrolytic coating that resists corrosion and is also easy to clean. They also mount the dual Fog Lights in a higher, more aggressive position that on previous models. A 4.5L tank bag provides flexible, easy-to-access storage, while new Side Tank Pads protect paint from knee scuffs and provide additional grip for off-road riding.

 

Urban Pack

Available in two options – plastic or aluminium. In plastic, a newly redesigned stripe design compliments the 58L Top Box (enough for 2 full-face helmets, comes with a Carrier Bracket, pillion Backrest and Inner Bag. The 42L aluminium Top Box features its own Carrier Bracket and Inner Bag. The Urban Packs also include new, easy-to-fit heated grips and ACC charging socket, which the Africa Twin ES has as standard. Finally a Main Stand makes for straightforward rear wheel/chain maintenance.

 

Travel Pack

Like the Urban Pack the Travel Pack comes in plastic or aluminium. 40L left/30L right plastic Pannier Cases – also featuring the new designed stripes – also feature one-size Inner Bags. The Aluminium Cases 37L left / 33L right come complete with mounting stays, and individual right/left inner bags. Redesigned Upper Deflectors channel airflow around arms and shoulders and Lower Deflectors for the legs improve comfort at highway speeds. Comfort Pillion Footpegs are the finishing touch.

 

Seat Options

Compared to the standard design the Comfort Seat has an 8% larger surface area compared to previous models and uses a +15mm thicker urethane foam cushion with optimised density to reduce long-distance riding fatigue. The Comfort Seat gives a seat height range of 865/885mm and is available in 3 colour choices: Black/Black, Red/Black and Blue/Black. The Low Seat option drops down to 825/845mm.

 

The line-up is complemented by a 38L Top Box, black rubber Side Tank Pads, and the SC-Project Slip-on Muffler, available in 2 colours, Titanium Silver and Matt Black.
