2010 Honda VFR1200F Full VFR1200 specs and

IF YOU’VE KEPT one eye on Visordown’s pages over the last few you will have already Honda’s new V4 in numerous leaked spy but for those that want the lowdown here’s the first of the company’s long-awaited VFR1200F

It’s reported that 2011 Honda will offer a higher-spec version of the which will be equipped a sequential automatic gearbox and the cylinder deactivation technology.

has taken the standard press and created a gallery of colour for the Honda VFR1200F. which you can see if you that link.

Here’s the of the extensive media pack:

To a degree, pure function the VFR1200F’s form. Mass consummate rider control and efficiency provided the key underlying criteria and from this point the machine’s form The remarkably narrow cylinder and clever cylinder spacing a very narrow waist, lowering the seat height making it easier for the rider to both feet flat on the at rest.

This wasp-like also gives the rider the of being ‘in’ the bike than perched on top crucial for and control. The fuel tank’s yet complicated contours have as well as eye-pleasing aesthetics in Its shape and form supports and the rider to add extra elements of and heightened levels of feedback the riding situation.

The ergonomically styled fairing in harmony with the fuel to provide extra support and weather protection for the rider and Even the hand controls and with their revised positioning are engineered to ergonomic The pillion’s comfort and security not been overlooked, either.

The vacuum-moulded dual-seat has a flat and area for the pillion and strong, grab handles and footrests with comfort and security in

Layered Fairing technology

The layered fairing design of the is a perfect match of form and Designers and engineers worked to create a uniquely beautiful and, at the same time, air flow and heat management. The design incorporates two layers, harnesses the benefits of flowing air to the dynamic and mechanical advantage.

has two functions; air entering between the and through two oval-shaped spaces in the of the fairing is channelled in exactly the needed to enhance the bike’s at higher speeds. By effectively the speed of the air by channelling it through apertures before it reaches the engine cooling is optimised and the exhausted air is channelled away the rider and passenger for a cooler, comfortable ride. The heat by the powerful, enclosed V4 engine is channelled away to keep hot air from the rider.

A balance of and negative surfaces gives the of the motorcycle a light, open while also creating a that slices through the with the least possible A strongly defined X-shape the front of the machine. Concave direct the eye and air up towards the windscreen, incorporates another air-directing at its lower edge. Even the of the screen have been to enhance stability at speed.

The powerful single line-beam is the same type used on the Fireblade. Its light streams two tinted LED-look strips frame the sides of the headlight, the illusion of lightness and space.

colour options were to emphasise the highly-polished look, texture and unique shapes and of the bodywork.

In 2010 the VFR1200F make its debut in:

— Prominence Red

— Seal Metallic

— Pearl White

The VFR1200F engine was to provide its rider with speed, quick acceleration and a engaging feeling coming the engine’s power characteristics. also wanted to deliver the engine sound and feel characterise V4 sports bikes, but an additional focus on comfortable, power delivery. The new V4 engine’s is delivered where it’s useful and most enjoyable.

Its torque curve is focused in the low and mid making it possible for the rider to roll on and off the throttle while through bends. The bike is of staying in top gear (in the same between 130 and 195 km/hr, meaning the rider only needs to on braking and steering allowing the of their focus to be channelled reading the road and assessing the This effortless control the bike great fun to ride is a sports bike with usable power.

Smooth delivery

There several challenges involved in the strong V4 power for use in an all-round that can be used for weekend commuting and long-distance touring. Key of the VFR1200F’s power characteristics are its response and strong torque To allow full enjoyment of the power while still a high level of comfort, needed to be carefully managed.

A cylinder layout was developed for purpose. Instead of the traditional V4 configuration, with the cylinders spaced front-to-rear, the VFR1200F an ingenious solution in order to mass and at the same time a compact, space-saving solution. The cylinders are placed side by but close together, while the cylinders are more widely

This layout allows for a compact ‘waist’ that comfortably between the rider’s It also supports mass thus contributing to the bike’s feel and ease of control. no right-left couple imbalance, the for a balancer is eliminated and friction is

A new Symmetrically Coupled Phase-shift (S.C.P.C.) complements the advantages of the layout. Operating with a 28 throw, it effectively reduces vibration and noise, eliminating the for a power-sapping balance shaft. The new V4 produces more than 80% of its torque (115.3Nm/8,500 rpm) at

To allow the rider to comfortably full advantage of this delivery is smoothed by four dampers, which further uncomfortable vibration and backlash.

The VFR1200F utilises the single overhead camshaft head design from the CRF motocrossers. The logic was straightforward: in an where space, performance and are at a premium this technology was for a project where mass and ergonomics were prime criteria.

Also borrowed the CRF range is the sealed crankcase where mechanical pumping are eliminated by the use of a scavenge pump to the unwanted crankcase pressure to atmosphere. This system has been used on a road before but the gains for the rider are — electrifying throttle and improved fuel consumption.

New layout and ground-breaking shaft system

A compact new transmission contributes to high-speed stability, cornering and improved traction In the new configuration the output shaft is in front of the counter shaft to road-holding. Moving the output forwards leaves room for a swing-arm without extending the length thus improving and traction simultaneously.

The VFR1200F a revolutionary shaft drive that delivers all the characteristics of a drive in terms of its dynamic without the time-wasting maintenance associated with chain drive. This highly shaft drive system an offset pivot point eliminates ‘rise’ and a sliding velocity joint that up any variations in length during the wheel’s arc of travel.

At the output shaft a clutch absorbs any backlash. The results are regardless of how aggressive the rider is the throttle, this shaft system always behaves a conventional chain drive.


A throttle-by-wire system the rider’s connectivity with the Providing light, precise metering at all engine parameters highly developed accuracy the rider increased levels of whatever the situation. It is another aspect that adds to the feelings of response and control.

To aid under intense deceleration a clutch is fitted, similar to the on the CBR1000RR Fireblade. Even the most excessive downshifting the is designed to slip, thus the rear wheel from locking up, allowing the rider to firmly in control.

The VFR1200F suspension and drive components are together in a unique configuration facilitates both sports power and smooth stability. Its aluminium twin-spar diamond frame is both lightweight and The swingarm and driveshaft length are without extending the overall of the motorcycle.

A short wheelbase the bike compact for great around corners, while the remains long for improved of traction. Meanwhile, the long contributes to balanced, confident and incredible high-speed stability.

The swingarm is complemented by a compliant rear shock absorber adjustable rebound damping. At the sturdy 43mm telescopic with adjustable preload smooth and assured control. these systems ensure a ride, even with a and luggage on board, and add to the overall of total control.


The VFR1200F is equipped with the highly developed brake for all-round sports bike Powerful new six-piston calipers act on discs (320mm at the front and at the rear). A Combined Braking creates the optimal balance of and rear braking forces.

The of a standard-fit compact and lightweight ABS both the motorcycle’s sports potential and its touring proficiency.
