Experience enhanced practicality with an easily adjustable windscreen, 12V socket and DCT mode with three levels of S Mode.

 A new special edition colour and Euro 4 compatibility compliments a machine that gives the rider a true sense of challenge and the facility to explore.

The VFR1200X is home to a 1,237cc V4 engine, advanced chassis and electronic package which features a combined ABS Traction Control System (TCS) and the option of Honda’s Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) gear box for consistent, seamless gear changes.

Honda’s Unicam technology contributes to the 1,237cc, 16-valve engine. This SOHC configuration helps to reduce the weight and size of the cylinder heads and optimises combustion chamber shape. Specially designed to provide practical functionality and smoothness of ride, VFR1200X’s vibration is virtually eliminated by a 76 degree angle between the two banks of cylinders and a crank shaft with 28 degree phasing between the crankpins.

The PGM-FI fuel injection system employs 44mm throttle bones and fly-by-live technology for concise throttle control.Style your ride with three striking colours to compliment your diamond aluminium frame. Digital Silver Metallic and Pearl Cosmic Black offer a smooth, sleek feel, or choose the Special Edition Two-Tone Red for a striking style. Make those challenges achievable with the VFR1200X.
