Honda VFR1200F For Sale
The 2010 Honda VFR1200F is a premium sports tourer with shaft drive and is powered by a 1,237cc V4 engine which puts out 170bhp. Honda's fancy automatic DCT gearbox is an option.
What Is It?
It's powered by a liquid cooled 1,237cc V4 engine, producing 170.3bhp at 10,000rpm and maximum torque at 8,750rpm.
- Aluminium twin spar frame
- Shaft final drive
- Dual 320mm discs up front with Nissin 3 piston calipers
- 276mm disc at the rear with Nissin 2 piston caliper
- Combined ABS system (C-ABS)
- Slipper clutch
- 43mm fork with pre-load adjustment and 120mm travel
- Adjustable rear shock with 130mm travel
- LED indicators and position lights framing the headlight
- 6 speed gearbox
The optional Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) automatic gearbox adds 10kg to the weight. One clutch handles 1st/3rd/5th while the other handles 2nd/4th/6th then the one not currently engaged gets the next gear ready for a really quick change.
There are two automatic modes, one a bit sportier, or the rider can pop it in manual mode and shift using buttons on the handlebar. It will even revert back to automatic if needed and blip the throttle when automatically changing down.
As with Honda's other C-ABS system the rear brake lever also operates the third pin in the front calipers. The 17" cast Aluminium wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 190/55 at the rear.
Accessories include a centre stand, colour coded 29 litre panniers, 31 litre top box, 3 position screen extender, 25mm lower seat, 3 level heated grips and satnav.
Colours: Red, silver, white, black (2011)

VFR1200 10 reg. This bike may not be everybody's idea of a Good looking bike but in the right colour it looks a quality machine. They look good in grey or blue but not red in my opinion.
The bike finish is good but there is a known issue with the plastic panel on the right below the seat cracks. This is due to a badly positioned brake tube support bracket. Honda claim it is a user issue but as some where replaced under warranty you think they know it is a design fault.
I got my bike in December and I love the noise it makes, that V4 is great. Plenty of power and smooth delivery. The suspension is a little hard but I may be able to dial that down a bit. I have scrubbed the new tyres in now and the bike is grippy around the twisties.
I hope to do at least 5000 miles this year but tend to only do dry miles because the brake disks get surface rust in the slightest of a hint of moisture.
