Honda VFR1200X Crosstourer

What Is It?

It's powered by a liquid cooled 1,237cc V4 engine, producing 127.4bhp at 7,750rpm and maximum torque at 6,500rpm. RRP is £12,500 or £13,300 with DCT. The Highlander pack is £13,900 or £14,700 with DCT.

Features include:

  • Aluminium twin spar frame
  • 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
  • LED indicators and handguards
  • Gear position indicator
  • Fuel injection

The engine is essentially the same as the VFR1200F but de-tuned for more power and torque lower down and like the BMW R1200GS power reaches the rear wheel via an easy to maintain shaft drive

The 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 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. Clever stuff!

As with Honda's other C-ABS system the rear brake lever also operates the third 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.

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 lamps. The Highlander pack gets you the top box, panniers, accessory bar, LED fog lights and centre stand.

2014 introduced traction control with 3 levels and off mode, DCT gearbox software updates, self cancelling indicators, improved seat and new ignition key.

2016 introduced a one hand adjustable screen, 12V socket, 3 levels of S Mode with the DCT gearbox, ability to detect inclines and adapt the shift pattern and Euro 4 compliance. Optional heated grips now offer 5 levels of power.
