Just last month, we tested Honda’s flagship adventure bike, the CRF1100L Africa Twin, and were pleased with its performance. Now, the Africa Twin can be upgraded with Android Auto, allowing seamless control of the rider's smartphone via Africa Twin's handlebar.
Owners of the Africa Twin and Africa Twin Adventure Sports will be able to have the new functionality installed at their Honda dealership, allowing Android Auto to be used by customers with an Android smartphone. Android Auto is a simple way to use your phone’s apps while on your motorcycle. With clear visual display and easy-to-use voice commands, it makes it easy to access Google Maps navigation and your favorite music, media, and messaging apps.
This new Android Auto functionality adds a further element to the Africa Twin’s appeal. Honda is also rolling out connectivity solutions on their other models such as the GL1800 Gold Wing, CB1000R, Forza 750, X-ADV, and Forza 350.
