October 8, 2009 - Honda Motor Europe Ltd. announced plans to begin sales in 2010 of the sports tourer VFR1200F/VFR1200F Dual Clutch Transmission, featuring an all-new V4 engine.
The VFR1200F has been developed in keeping with previous VFRs; that have delivered a combination of sports and touring capabilities using the latest technologies. This motorcycle is however brand new: A clean-sheet interpretation of the ultimate road-sport machine – a concept driven by extensive understanding of customer needs and the adoption of state-of-the-art technologies.
In pursuit of heightened levels of control and feedback, the VFR1200F adopts the latest race-track bred technologies but adapted and evolved to create a machine that can be many things to many riders.
The harmonic growl of the flexible and responsive V4 motor may rekindle the emotions inspired by previous iconic VFRs, but it’s unique ‘heartbeat’ engine feel and an unrivalled level of manageability sets the new VFR apart, not only from its forbears - but also from every bike currently available.
