PERFORMANCE

1237cc V-4 ENGINE

Drawing on 30 years of V-4 technology and racing success, Honda designers gave the VFR1200X what is one of our most advanced streetbike engines yet: a fuel-injected, liquid-cooled 1237cc, 76-degree V-4 brimming with low-end torque.

ENGINEERING

TRANSMISSION CHOICES

You can choose between a conventional six-speed manual transmission or our latest, third-generation Honda Automatic DCT. With the DCT, you upshift or downshift with a pair of paddle-style buttons, or you can let the gearbox shift for itself.

HANDLING

SELECTABLE TORQUE CONTROL

Honda's Selectable Torque Control system (HSTC) is designed to help riders adapt to multiple traction conditions. With the push of a button the VFR1200X's (HSTC) lets you choose from three levels of engine-torque. The system can also be turned off according to rider preference. Available on both manual-transmission and Automatic DCT versions of the VFR1200X.

DUAL FRONT DISCS

The twin front brakes use huge 310mm discs for plenty of fade-free stopping power. Combined ABS is a standard feature.

SHAFT FINAL DRIVE

Tough, durable, silent, clean, and low-maintenance, the VFR1200X’s shaft final drive is exactly what you want in a bike designed to turn out some serious miles.

CONVENIENCE

ONE-HAND ADJUSTABLE WINDSCREEN

It couldn’t be easier to adjust the new VFR1200X’s windscreen. One hand and a couple of seconds is all you’ll need. The range adjusts over three inches from high to low.

ACCESSORY SOCKET

Need to charge your phone, run a GPS, or any other electrical accessory? This handy outlet makes it a cinch.

HANDLING

43mm INVERTED FORK

Who knows where you’ll be riding, but the VFR1200X’s suspension is up to the job. The 43mm KYB fork is adjustable for spring preload as well as rebound damping, and is plenty stiff for steering precision.

ALUMINUM FRAME

The VFR1200X’s twin-spar aluminum frame members are fine-tuned to offer very precise control over weight and rigidity, and form the foundation of the bike’s stellar handling.

PRO-LINK HMAS REAR SUSPENSION

The KYB shock on the VFR1200X’s rear suspension is adjustable for rebound damping and features a convenient no-tool preload adjuster making it easy to fine-tune the ride for varying loads.

SINGLE-SIDED SWINGARM

The final-drive assembly runs right through the single-sided aluminum swingarm housing, making rear-wheel removal a snap.

SPOKED WHEELS

With a 17-inch rear and a 19-inch front, the VFR1200X’s wheels are built to handle the rigors of gnarly pavement or dirt/gravel roads.
