Available on the Africa Twin, our Automatic DCT delivers huge advantages in performance and ride character.
The CRF1100L Africa Twin sports one of the best engines ever in an adventure bike. The parallel-twin design is narrow, and delivers torque everywhere from idle to redline. You’ll have more grunt down low, and cruise easy on the open road.
Here’s one of the worst-kept secrets in the motorcycling world—Honda’s Africa Twins make great long-distance touring bikes. To that end, we’ve equipped our Africa Twin models with cruise control, just like our Gold Wings. Your next adventure really starts a couple of hundred miles away? No problem!
The Africa Twin doesn’t just look like an adventure bike—it’s the real deal. Exhibit A: Check out its long-travel front suspension. The inverted Showa fork is fully adjustable with huge 45mm tubes and 9.1 inches of travel—the most front-end travel in the 1000cc off-road class.
Apple CarPlay™* seamlessly integrates your compatible iPhone®* into your new Africa Twin. That means you can use your iPhone® to access Apple Maps, Apple Music, and other services easily. You’ll have access to weather, playlists and telephone numbers while aboard. Available Bluetooth®**-enabled wireless headsets let you communicate more easily than ever. And best of all, with more apps available every day, Apple CarPlay™ keeps your bike’s technology and convenience on the cutting edge.

**For using Apple CarPlay, connection to a commercially available Bluetooth headset is necessary. See owner's manual for Bluetooth headset requirements.
Updating your Africa Twin’s software helps you get the most out of your bike. Plus, those upgrades now include Android Auto compatibility, so you can use both your smartphone’s Android Auto or Apple CarPlay™ systems to give you navigational help, and more. Installation is easy and free to download—we’ll walk you through all the steps.CHECK IT OUT

The new 6.5-inch touch-panel LCD Multi-Information Display connects you to your Africa Twin like never before. To help bring it to life for you, we created an interactive simulator that demonstrates the main functions of the MID. You can customize how much information you see with three unique displays, integrate your phone with Apple CarPlay™, and much more.
Honda's Automatic Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) is a breakthrough feature that makes riding easier and more fun.
Our DCT enhances the riding experience by letting you focus on the most rewarding parts of your ride, making each mile even better.
Choose Manual Mode, and you can override the automatic shifting on the fly with a pair of handlebar-mounted fingertip shifters.
Seamless power delivery and no power interruptions mean you avoid momentary traction losses between shifts.
Because our DCT is built with steel gears inside, there are no drive belts to slip, break, or burn up, and there’s no torque converter either. They’re as tough and efficient as any manual gearbox.
Programmed Ride Modes like Drive, Sport and Manual allow you to adjust the Africa Twin’s ride character. There’s also a special G-Switch for off-road riding, that helps you slide the rear tire under throttle input, to help steer with the rear.
Engine compression braking is key to bike control, especially when entering turns or on technical downhills off-road. Since DCT has manual-type gearbox internals, you get genuine compression braking—and control.
DCT means no hunting for neutral or reaching for a shifter when you’re standing on the pegs. Plus, your left hand is free to activate a garage-door opener, find a parking key card or pay at a toll booth.
Supercars and Formula 1 use paddle-shift transmissions because they offer the fastest, most efficient shifting and deliver consistent power to the ground.
DCT’s seamless power delivery is a big benefit on steep hills or in low-speed situations.
Eliminate the drama that comes with stopping and restarting on a steep incline. DCT lets you twist and go.
Ever knock helmets with your passenger when shifting? That won’t happen with DCT.
