Honda VFR1200X Crosstourer Motorbikes For Sale & Buying Guide
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 1,237 cc V4 engine, producing 127.4 bhp at 7,750 rpm and maximum torque at 6,500 rpm.
- Aluminium twin spar frame with single sided swingarm
- Dual 310 mm discs up front with Nissin six piston calipers
- 276 mm disc at the rear with Nissin two piston caliper
- Combined ABS system (C-ABS)
- Adjustable 43 mm 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 10 kg 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, 830 mm 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.
