Get to know the Africa Twin. Well, its screen at least.
Begin press release:
In an effort to help existing and potential customers better understand the extensive capabilities of the 2020 CRF1100L Africa Twin’s advanced Multi-Information Display, American Honda has released a new interactive simulator on its consumer website.
All four CRF1100L Africa Twin versions—the manual and Dual Clutch Transmission iterations of the standard Africa Twin and Africa Twin Adventure Sports ES—are equipped with a 6.5 inch touch-panel TFT LCD Multi-Information Display (MID) and handlebar controls that offer features including Apple CarPlay™ integration; activation/cancelation of ABS and G-mode; and adjustment of settings for Honda Selective Torque Control (HSTC), wheelie control, riding modes, user mode and—on applicable versions—suspension and DCT; as well as other data like time, speed, etc.
With the new simulator, consumers can operate virtual controls to mimic the on-bike experience of interacting with the MID, thereby familiarizing themselves with the steps in order to become more adept at the process.
“The electronic technology of the 2020 Africa Twin is amazingly capable, and Honda’s new Multi-Information Display simulator enables customers to more easily get the most out of their machines,” said Chris Cox, Manager of Experiential Marketing & P.R. at American Honda. “We encourage customers—whether they already own an Africa Twin or are in the market for a new adventure bike—to give the tool a try.”
The tool can be accessed by scrolling down within the website’s Africa Twin section, clicking “Check it out,” selecting the appropriate language and distance units, and clicking “Start.” Users are encouraged to first explore the “Information” and “Navigation” sections, accessed via buttons in the top-righthand corner of the screen, in order to familiarize themselves with the simulator.
