Among its numerous technical credentials, the VFR1200F features a clever and effective bit of Honda engineering: the use of a Throttle By Wire (TBW) system. Thanks to this setup, the throttle valve layout in the Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system is now freed from the restrictions imposed by a mechanically linked/actuated throttle-grip system. As a result, this TBW setup is more compact and lighter than conventional cable-operated systems.

The annual MotoGP event at Laguna Seca is a special stop on the GP calendar, and not just because of the idyllic setting in the rolling hills of Monterey, California. Laguna is steeped in GP history, and Honda’s race record here dates back three decades to the early years of Freddie Spencer’s career. Perhaps it’s only fitting that the 2013 Red Bull MotoGP was won in commanding fashion by 20-year-old Spanish phenom Marc Marquez, who earlier this year became the youngest rider in history to win a MotoGP, breaking a record set by Spencer some 30 years ago.
