What Is It?
The Honda VFR1200X Crosstourer is a premium adventure style bike and is related to the VFR1200F sports tourer. It's powered by a liquid cooled 1,237cc V4 engine, producing 127.4bhp at 7,750rpm and maximum torque at 6,500rpm.
- Aluminium twin spar frame wtih single sided swingarm
- Dual 310mm discs up front with Nissin 3 piston calipers
- 276mm disc at the rear with Nissin 2 piston caliper
- Combined ABS system (C-ABS)
- Adjustable 43mm upside down fork
- Adjustable rear shock
- 6 speed gearbox with gear position indicator
- LED indicators and handguards
The engine is essentially the same as the VFR1200F but de-tuned for more torque lower down. Like Honda's other C-ABS systems the rear brake lever also operates the middle pin in the front calipers. The wire spoked 19" front wheel takes a Pirelli Scorpion Trail 110/80 tyre and the rear a 150/70.
The £800 optional Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) automatic gearbox adds 10kg to the weight and the original VFR1200 was one of the first to feature it. One clutch handles 1st / 3rd / 5th while the other handles 2nd / 4th / 6th then the clutch 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.
Accessories include 3-level heated grips, 830mm low seat, top box, easy fit panniers (35 litre right and 39 litre left), centre stand and accessory bar with LED fog lights. The Highlander pack gets you the top box, panniers, accessory bar, LED fog lights, touring screen and centre stand.
