2010 Honda VFR1200F: lives!

The 2010 Honda shown here doesn’t cylinder deactivation or the dual transmission. those are being for a higher spec version premier at the Tokyo Motor later this month. it does have is a 76° 1,237cc V4 172.72bhp at 10,000rpm and 85lb/ft of at 8,750rpm. It’s going to that power becuase it a shocking 267kg/588lbs (wet).

specs below.

Update: information, analysis, official and video below.

It turns out 588lbs weight is for European-spec and that the US market version, guessing due to those stupid evaporative emissions canisters, in at 591lbs. More importantly, US is also quoting a weight for the clutch-equipped model – 278kg/613lbs. that option will a price premium and no performance over the existing sequential we predict poor sales for so equipped.

There’s no word on a price

Official Honda options include hard panniers, a top centerstand, Sat/Nav, fairing (in front of the handlebars) and a flip-up

We’re guessing that, us, you’re a bit underwhelmed with the of Honda’s new flagship. All the technology we expecting – the fancy gearbox and deactivation – appears to be optional and (increased cost without a benefit) and the spec sheet is underwhelming compared to presumably competitors like the Kawasaki

That bike is big and comfy, yet 187bhp and 113.5lb/ft before ram air in and weighs just 257kg/566lbs It does lack shaft The BMW K1300S does have drive, but is also lighter and makes equivalent power and more torque (103lb/ft).

That BMW’s optional (ESAII electronically adjustable with unprecedented variable rate) deliver a clear for their extra cost.

is really pushing the V4 engine and its heritage as this bike’s selling point, but this is a big touring machine, not a race Is the association with GP bikes going to sell a long road bike?
