Penang, 25th Aug 2022 – Boon Siew Honda has introduced the new upgraded version for the flagship model of the Adventure segment – the 2022 CRF1100 Africa Twin Adventure Sports.
First introduced to Malaysian roads in 2018 with its athletic appearance and comfortable chassis, the bike proved itself to be a true modern-day all-rounder. In 2020, the introduction of a longer stroke 1084cc engine was coupled with a comprehensive redesign in an aggressively compact rally style. The touring comfort and technology of the CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports were also enhanced.
For 2022, the CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports now features refined Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) settings for even smoother handling in 1st and 2nd gears, a new 110mm shorter 5-level adjustable screen, improving visibility but still offering plenty of wind and weather protection and striking new ‘Cracked Terrain’ graphics.
The CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports offers 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, aluminium rear carrier plus tubeless wheels and tyres. ACC charger and heated grips are also standard fit.
The Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) gearbox has been refined, giving the CRF1100L smoother handling in the first two gears, making standing starts easier and low-speed handling more practical. The spacing of the levels has been optimised to allow the rider a finer choice of the amount of rear tyre slide for off-road riding. It allows a smooth operation of the Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) system, which is always steadfast.
At the centre of the Africa Twin Adventure Sports, a six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) controls not only the 7-level HSTC but also 3-level Wheelie Control, Cornering ABS, Rear Lift Control and DCT cornering detection. There are four default riding modes: URBAN, TOUR, GRAVEL and OFF-ROAD. There are also two available customisable USER modes to suit riders’ preferences.
Four default suspension 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, improving 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. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® are also integrated with the TFT screen, with the rider’s smartphone plugging into the USB charging port, while hands-free wireless Bluetooth connectivity is an option allowing riders to always stay connected with their device while cruising.
The 2022 Honda CRF1100 Africa Twin Adventure Sports will be available exclusively in Pearl Glare White Tricolour.
