Honda Releases Interactive Display Simulator for New Africa Twin

New virtual tool for CRF1100L mimics MID on-bike experience.

Published on 01.30.2020

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 (MID), Honda has released a new interactive simulator on its consumer website.

All four CRF1100L Africa Twin versions—the manual and DCT (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.

New 6.5 inch touch-screen TFT LCD Multi-Information Display (MID) on the CRF1100L Africa Twin offers a wide range of hi-tech features.

With the new simulator tool, 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.”

With the new simulator tool, consumers can preview and interact with the new TFT Display in a virtual environment.

The tool is best experienced on desktop and 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.

Smart. Some of the manufacturers of high-end aircraft navigation systems (Garmin, etc.) have simulator apps so you can familiarize yourself with all the functions in their capable-but-complex machines. So much better to learn on an iPad or laptop than on the road (or in the air).
