Themotorcycle will come with a choice of two gearbox options - a 6-speed manual and a dual-clutch automatic transmission, as opposed to only a dual-clutch option on the current model on sale in India.For the 2020 model year, the CRF1100L Africa Twin gets a revised and lighter chassis with electronic suit assisted by a six-axis IMU (inertia management unit). The features include lean-sensitive traction control, cornering ABS and wheelie control. Also, what's new is the Off-road mode in addition to Tour, Urban and Gravel riding modes, apart from two User modes that allow individual customisation.
