If you want to take the road less travelled, then these are the two wheels to do it on. The VFR1200X Crosstourer is the epitome of adventure riding. It carries a hybrid of capabilities, being as much an off-road risk taker with superior suspension and upright positioning, as an on-road heartbreaker with a powerful sports touring V4 engine.
For 2013 this exciting V4 adventure-sports-tourer is released in a new Special Edition: New graphics and a matte black look from head to toe, or front forks to tail section. This superhero of adventure bikes can rocket down fresh gravel as if it's on tarseal. With a frame virtually identical to the VFR1200F, its clear differences include a longer travel suspension, larger wheels and compromising dual purpose tyres that eliminate any fear of wandering along. The Crosstourer also features switchable traction control, a slipper clutch, plus Honda's sophisticated Combined Anti-lock Braking System (C-ABS). Mount this machine and go crazy knowing that you're in complete control.
As a truly versatile ride, the VFR1200X offers a number of adaptable features ideal for both on- and off-road, short and long distance riding. Honda's Dual Clutch Transmission ensures seamless and smooth gear changes in any of its three riding modes; using two electronically controlled clutches, the system offers the choice of manual gear shifting and two fully automatic modes - one for general use, the other for high performance riding.
The superior front and rear suspension systems, Traction Control System (TCS), Combined ABS brakes, lightweight hollow aluminium frame and 1237cc V4 engine all work to deliver the all-round impressive handling, safety, power and torque that only a Honda can.
