Honda’s DCT Crosstourer Now Ready For Adventure
The Dual Clutch Transmission version of Honda’s adventure touring powerhouse, the VFR1200X has hit Australian shores.
Since its initial release in May 2012, the VFR1200X, or Crosstourer as it is aptly named, has been impressing riders with its flexibility and versatility.
Signifying an important expansion of Honda’s state-of-the-art V4 model line-up, the Crosstourer delivers all of the fun and excitement of a sports tourer with the comfortable upright riding position and manoeuvrability of an adventure machine.
Powered by a 1,237cc, V4 engine which has been optimised for stronger low and medium rpm drive, the Crosstourer delivers smooth power to make even the longest rides feel effortless.
Honda’s highly refined Dual Clutch Transmission system guarantees seamless and smooth gear changes. Using two electronically controlled clutches, the system offers the choice of manual gear shifting and two fully automatic modes, one for general use and another for high performance riding.
Designed to excel on a huge variety of road surfaces, the front and rear suspension systems both offer generous amounts of controlled, bump-absorbing travel. The rigid 43mm upside-down telescopic front forks offer reassuring control with precise steering and stability while the Pro-Link rear suspension configuration combines strong traction with ride quality.
Honda’s Traction Control System (TCS) and Combined ABS underline the new machine’s any-road, any-weather capability and ensure rider peace of mind, even in low-grip conditions.
Honda’s Crosstourer has been designed with stylish functionality in mind; sharp edges accentuate its rugged adventure style while a non-bulky front gives a feeling of lightness and communicates refined sportiness.
To help riders get the most out this new machine, an extensive range of Genuine Honda Accessories are available. The range includes a specially designed pannier set and top box, both large enough for a full faced helmet as well as heated grips, LED fog lamp kit, cowl ornament kit, a quarted harness, averto alarm kit and more.
No journey is too long or too demanding and no road or surface impassable for Honda’s new Crosstourer. See your Honda Dealer for more information on the DCT or standard version.
