NEW model 2012 VFR1200X Crosstourer - HERE NOW!!
Honda is proud to announce the expansion of its state-of-the-art V4 model line-up by introducing the new Crosstourer.
The Crosstourer will deliver all the fun and excitement of a sports tourer with the comfortable upright riding position and manoeuvrability of an adventure machine.
The VFR1200X is NOW AVAILABLE at your local Honda road bike dealership, BOOK YOUR TEST RIDE TODAY! The Crosstourer is available in 2 colours, Pearl Sunbeam White and Candy Prominence Red. RRP $27,995.
The Crosstourer combines sports touring features, such as the powerful V4 engine configuration also found in the VFR1200F, with features found on off-road motorcycles such as long travel suspension and an upright riding position for reassuring handling and grip. This crossover between two biking genres makes the Crosstourer a unique and versatile package. The long-travel suspension usually found on off-road bikes to smoothly travel over rough terrain will benefit riders on uneven road surfaces. The rugged long-travel suspension systems also make for superb ride quality and precise control. The upright riding position provides comfort, control and outstanding visibility for the rider.
Like the Crossrunner unveiled at EICMA in 2010, the Crosstourer provides the power of a V4 engine packaged in a crossover motorcycle. The machine also comes equipped with a TCS (Traction Control System), which increases the rider’s reassurance on low-friction riding surfaces by ensuring the engine never transmits more power than the rear tyre can handle. Refinements such as Honda’s Combined ABS underline the motorcycle’s all-weather, all-road capability – this machine really is ready for anything.
The Crosstourer sets a new standard in full size adventure sports touring motorcycles. It offers a unique combination of V4 engine performance with advanced technology (Combined ABS, TCS) for stability and handling when riding solo or two-up on all types of road and all lengths of journey. The adventure starts here.
Engine - Big-capacity V4 power
The 1,237cc V4 engine, installed for the first time in a Honda adventure sports touring motorcycle, has been optimised for stronger low and medium rpm drive, delivering smooth power to make the Crosstourer feel effortless on long rides.
Chassis - Versatile chassis
Chosen for its excellent weight/rigidity balance, the Crosstourer’s die-cast aluminium frame mounts long-travel suspension systems front and rear to deliver an engaging riding experience and a comfortable ride, even on rough roads.
Honda’s Traction Control System (TCS) and Combined ABS underline the new machine’s any-road, any-weather capability. The two ensure rider peace of mind, even in low-grip conditions.
