CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports – 24YM

24YM marks another major update for the CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports. Updated chassis dynamics based around a new 19in front wheel, more power and torque for the engine, further DCT refinements and a more muscular new look move the model on yet again.

Model Overview

The 24YM CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports shares the frame and engine of the more off-road focussed CRF1100L Africa Twin but has a role very much of its own: to offer riders real continent-crossing long-haul ability and practicality both on and off-road.

For 24YM Showa EERA offers optimum constantly-adjusted damping control. Four default modes – SOFTMIDHARD and OFF-ROAD – cover every type of riding situation, and there’s a USER mode for further fine-tuning on the move. Rear spring preload can also now be adjusted while moving.

CRF1100D4 Africa Twin Adventure Sports E/S : €22,499.00
