Meet the future.
Revolutionary? Radical? Honda’s incredible VFR1200F is all that, and much more. The list of innovative technology is endless, and there’s even more this year since the 2012 VFR1200F showcases some significant upgrades, improvements and innovations. The super-compact Unicam® design 1237cc V4 engine is fueled by Honda’s Throttle By Wire system, and this year offers more torque and more range. There’s even a new Traction Control system. Together with Honda’s Combined Braking with ABS, this makes the VFR one of the most feature packed bikes out there.
But perhaps most striking of all is the available game-changing six-speed Honda Dual-Clutch Transmission: featuring your choice of changing gears with a pair of F1-style paddle shifters or letting the bike shift itself in either of two riding modes. It’s a feature that has completely blown away even the most cynical magazine test rider. And for 2012 it’s even better, with revised software to optimize the shift points depending on an individual rider’s inputs and riding style. Or, if you prefer, there’s also a second version of the VFR1200F equipped with a conventional six-speed gearbox and a slipper clutch.
