Honda Introduces 2016 VFR1200X Adventure Bike | FIRST LOOK
Honda's new VFR1200X for 2016
The new VFR's rolling stock: 110/90-19 up front with 150/70-17 at the rear.
How wrong we were to think Honda’s 2016 model lineup was complete, headlined by the all-new Africa Twin. Instead, Honda will add another X model to the line, the VFR1200X , known as the Crosstourer in other parts of the world. Based on the basic VFR1200F platform , the X goes all BMW GS, rolling on ADV-sized laced wheels, which are the “older” sizes of 110/90-19 front and 150/70-17 rear, not the larger tires popular on the current BMW GS and KTM Adventure bikes. The VFR-X also retains the F’s single-sided swingarm and shaft final drive, and is clothed in adventure-y plastic.
Prices have not been set, and it’s not clear that American Honda will bring in the “adventure” packages it sells in other markets, made up of hard luggage, bash guards, driving lights, and other ADV-ish farkles. Honda says the VFR1200X will roll onto our shores in May 2016.
