Africa Twin CRF1100




The greater the challenge, the greater the reward. We say bring it on. Inspired by the legend of Dakar with hard-hitting performance, blacked-out detailing, and sharp new graphics straight from a rally racing stage, the CRF1100L Africa Twin is born to perform when the going gets tough.


OWN THE MOMENT We know exactly what you need: maximum performance and minimum weight, thanks to the smaller tank, and a lighter, more agile body. Push on where others fail; perfect for a variety of off-road riding conditions. But it is a straightforward proposition – it’s all down to you, and your motorcycle. Be prepared to take on new and more adventurous riding. It’s why we built the Africa Twin. We know what it can do.
