2024 Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports ES Now Available in Malaysia With 7% More Torque, RM119,388

The updated and improved 2024 Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports ES is now on sale in Malaysia, priced at RM119,388. The price does not include road tax, insurance and registration fees, and the Africa Twin Adventure Sports will be available at all Boon Siew Honda Big Wing dealerships from 19 June.

Refinement to the Africa Twin’s 1,084cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine has resulted in a 7% increase in torque, with power now claimed to be 102 hp at 7,500 rpm and peak torque of 112 Nm at 5,500 rpm.

The Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) six-speed gearbox has also been improved to provide a more natural, “feather-like” clutch feel when initially setting off and between first and second gears, and there are three gearbox modes, including “MT” for manually shifting gears using a handlebar switch.

Meanwhile, “D” is for city and highway driving and offers fully autonomous operation and maximum fuel efficiency, while the three-stage “S” mode slightly increases engine revs before upshifts, downshifts earlier when decelerating and provides increased engine braking.

The rider can quickly switch to “MT” mode while riding, overriding the gearbox if required. When normal riding resumes, the DCT gearbox reverts to automatic mode, dependent on throttle and gear position and vehicle speed.

Selection of the Africa Twin’s gearbox off-road mode is made via “G” mode, accessed via the 6.5″ TFT-LCD screen. Available in any gearbox mode, this mode improves the sense of available traction and machine control by reducing the amount of clutch slip when changing gears.

The Africa Twin’s electronic suite comes with a six-axis IMU and ride-by-wire throttle, which allows four levels of power delivery and three stages of engine braking, while the Honda Selectable Traction Control (HSTC) comes with seven levels of intervention and an ‘Off’ selection for full off-road driving.

Comes as standard with Wheelie Control, which offers three levels: Level 3 prevents any front wheel lift, Level 2 allows some lift, and Level 1 is for riders who want to keep the front wheel off the ground to extend the life of their front tyre.

Showa Electronically Equipped Ride Adjustment (Showa EERATM) is now standard (previously optional in Malaysia) and the front and rear suspension travel now measures 200mm. There are four suspension modes available – Soft, Mid, Firm and Off-road – and a User mode can also be selected to suit the rider’s preference.

Ergonomics and rider comfort have also been improved with 15mm thicker urethane seat foam and a seat contour cut for increased comfort during long days in the saddle. Seat height is tool-free adjustable between 820mm and 840mm.

The Africa Twin’s front fairing has been redesigned for better wind protection, with a five-position manually adjustable windscreen. This minimises wind pressure and improves rider comfort on long journeys.

Braking is provided by twin 310mm brake discs with four-piston calipers on the 19″ front wheel, and a single disc with single-piston caliper on the 18″ rear wheel. Two-wheel ABS and rear-wheel lift mitigation are standard, and when driving off-road the ABS only switches off when the Africa Twin is stationary, and the ABS switches back on when the ignition is switched off and then on again.

Hands-free wireless Bluetooth connectivity is available, all control inputs are managed from the left-hand switchgear and a USB charging port is located next to the MID for ease of use.Colour options for the CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports ES in Malaysia are Matt Ballistic Black Metallic and Pearl Glare White.
