An automated clutch and shift operation system that retains the direct acceleration feel of a manual transmission. Experience a more enjoyable ride by focusing on the sensations of accelerating, turning and braking your motorcycle.

The addition of a lithium-ion battery contributes to a 2.3kg overall weight saving, while several detail changes further improve the machine’s off-road ability and durability

LED Winkers and Taillights

The indicators and tail light of the Africa Twin, also, have the LED Lights. The Indicators are now enable with Auto Cancel Feature, wherein the system compares the front and rear wheel speed difference and calculates when to Automatically Cancel the indicators relative to the situation.

Rally Style Rider Console

Rally style negative LCD instrument display including: Riding Modes, Speedometer, Tachometer, Fuel, Gear position, HSTC, Odometer, Trip Clock and ABS Indicator.

Dynamically responsive

The introduction of TBW greatly expands the choices available to the rider to manage engine output, feel and rear wheel traction. The new HSTC system features 7 Levels – from Level 1, for aggressive riding off-road to Level 7 for maximum sense of security on slippery, wet tarmac. It remains possible to turn HSTC completely OFF.

Exceptional versatility

The riding modes are comprised of different levels of Power (P) and Engine Braking (EB) There are also 3 levels of Power and Engine Braking available which offer pre-set combinations of each parameter, suitable to different riding environments and scenarios: TOUR , URBAN, GRAVEL A fourth mode – USER – allows the rider to set and save his or her preferred combination of Power, EB and HSTC levels. Both riding mode and level of HSTC can be changed at any time using the controls on the left hand switchgear.

Superb braking system

The brakes (ABS) feature 310mm ‘wave’ style, twin floating front discs with Nissin 4-pot radial calipers for plenty of feel and strong stopping power. Rear disc is a 256mm ‘wave’ style with a 1-pot caliper. Off-road riders will appreciate the fact that they can turn the ABS function off for the rear wheel.

Breakthrough technology

In either D or S mode, DCT offers immediate manual intervention if required – the rider simply selects the required gear using the up and down shift triggers on the left handlebar. At an appropriate time DCT seamlessly reverts back to automatic mode, depending on throttle angle, vehicle speed and gear position.

Engineered functionality

In DCT, Three modes of operation are available. Automatic D mode is ideal for city and highway riding, and achieves optimum fuel efficiency. Automatic S mode offers three levels of sportier riding as the ECU lets the engine rev a little higher before shifting up, and shifts down sooner when decelerating for extra engine braking. The MT mode gives full manual control, allowing the rider to shift with the left handlebar trigger control buttons.

Innovative functionality

The African Twin is also equipped with a G Switch, which responds to the unique needs of off-road riding by providing half-clutch control that responds directly to throttle operation. This feature really comes into its own when negotiating big rifts in the road surface. Hit the ‘G’ switch and traction is improved throughout all modes. There’s also a unique incline detection feature – just what you need when faced with a loose, steep track or dune – so you’ll be in full control of any situation.

Superior suspension dynamics

Front Showa 45mm cartridge-type inverted (Upside Down) telescopic fork with dial-style preload adjuster and DF adjustment, 230mm stroke. Rear: Monoblock cast aluminium swing arm with Pro-Link with gas-charged damper, hydraulic dial-style preload adjuster and rebound damping adjustment, 220 mm rear wheel travel.

Distinct styling cues

Africa twin bears a Twin Lamp LED Headlight, which ensures brighter and richer vision, when the rider is on a dark road. It also complies with the global norm of AHO (Always Headlight On). The LED also helps reduce the power consumption by 90% as compared to conventional Headlamps.

Ergonomic seating adjustment

A wide seat at the rear tapers to narrow at the front, which provides extra comfort when sitting plus an easy transition to standing when off-road. The seat can be raised or lowered through a range of 20 mm (840 mm-820 mm).
