Honda has revealed its 2024 CRF1100L Africa Twin range, headlined by a significant boost to torque, and expected to hit Australian showrooms early next year.
The 2024 Honda Africa Twin retains a familiar 1084cc parallel-twin engine, however, torque has been increased by seven per cent to a total 112Nm, with peak torque output now arriving at 5500rpm rather than 6250rpm. Power output remains at 75kW.
Honda engineers adjusted the compression ratio, valve timing, intake ports and ECU settings, as well as the exhaust system to achieve the performance boost.
Other new features to come as standard include tubeless Metzeler Karoo Street tyres, a larger five-way adjustable screen and new graphics options.
Meanwhile, the Africa Twin Adventure Sports variant now features a 19-inch front wheel, rather than the standard 21-inch setup, as well as a suspension stroke reduction of 20mm to make the bike more approachable and better suited to road conditions.
The Adventure Sports also gets a new front fairing, and a new seat that is 15mm thicker than before. The bike can be further improved with optional Showa electronic suspension.
Australian pricing and exact availability details have yet to be confirmed.
