Honda Unleashes A Heavily-Updated Africa Twin ADV Moto For 2022

Since being reintroduced to the market in 2016, the Honda Africa Twin has become one of the most sought-after full-size adventure motorcycles, praised for its performance prowess, versatility, and value. And after previously bestowing the last model year AT with an extra 86ccs of displacement (resulting in 6% more horsepower) and a slew of new tech, Big Red has once again treated the CRF1100L to a substantial revision for the 2022 model year.

The underlying heart and bones of the adventure bike go unchanged, retaining the 2021 model’s semi-double-cradle chassis and 1,084cc parallel-twin cranking out 102hp and 77.5ft-lbs of torque. Other highlights carried over from last year also include a CRF450R-derived swing-arm, front and rear Showa suspension, a Bluetooth-connected 6.5” TFT display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and a full suite of adjustable, six-axis IMU-regulated, electronic rider aids. In addition to a trio of bold new race-inspired “Big Logo” liveries, other revisions for the latest model year are comprised of LED lighting throughout including DRLs, cruise control, an integrated rear luggage rack, and slightly tweaked bodywork. Alongside the base model of the bike, Honda will also be offering a well-farkled and touring-ready Adventure Sports-spec, as well as a DCT (automatic transmission version) of the Africa Twin with refined first and second-gear settings. Pricing has yet to be revealed, though you can check out the link below for more information.
