The VFR1200X Crosstourer, launched in 2012, is Honda’s range-topping adventure sports touring motorcycle. The original design team, led by Large Project Leader Yosuke Hasegawa, set out to create a machine that gave the rider a sense of challenge and the facility to explore.
Equipped with a 1,237cc V4 engine, advanced chassis and electronic package – Combined ABS, Traction Control System (TCS) and the option of Honda’s Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) gearbox – the Crosstourer firmly planted a flag at the high-performance end of the adventure segment.
As a go-anywhere, do-anything tool it has few peers – but its real difference lies in the addictive power and soundtrack produced by its soulful V4 engine, something unique in this class.
In 2014 the VFR1200X Crosstourer received improved comfort, evolved its existing technology and applied new touches. With Honda’s Selectable Torque Control, the system allows the rider to select three different levels to control engine torque and resultant drive to the rear wheel; the system can also be switched off. Honda’s six-speed DCT gearbox received software refinements to deliver an even more intuitive and natural performance, whether on highway or back road.
Honda’s unique new self-cancelling indicators were also fitted.
The seat was modified to improve rider comfort and facilitate easier ground reach and a ‘wave’ design ignition key was set as standard.
For 2016, the VFR1200X Crosstourer is now EURO4 compliant, and gets enhanced practicality with an easily-adjustable windscreen, 12V socket and three levels of S Mode in its DCT version.

We offer two simple and affordable finance options: PCP and VPL. But how do they differ?
Your repayments will be less than traditional finance. You put down a deposit on a bike, and we calculate its Guaranteed Minimum Future Value (GMFV). We deduct this from the price of the bike and your monthly payments are based on what’s left. You can then choose to pay the GMFV and keep your Honda, return it or part-exchange it for a new bike.
This works like a simple loan. You decide on the model and put down a deposit. We calculate for you how much you want your fixed monthly payment to be, and the term. That means you know up front how much your Honda will cost each month until it’s paid off and you own the bike.
