That means the front wheel can tuck in closer to the engine, shortening wheelbase and making the bike more nimble off road and on pavement. HANDLING LONG-TRAVEL SUSPENSION The Africa Twin doesn't just look like an adventure bike it s the real deal. Exhibit A: Check out its long-travel suspension. The fork features huge 45mm tubes and 9.1 inches of travel, while the single-shock Pro-Link rear suspension is also fully adjustable, with 8.7 inches of travel and a convenient remote preload adjustment.

Both transmissions are excellent choices, and both feature stout, strong steel gears inside the only difference is who does the shifting.
