Style. Innovation - The perfect fusion of beauty and function. The integration of
sophisticated design and Honda-renowned engineering. These are the qualities that
are deeply embedded in the all-new VFR1200F. This is a motorcycle like no other.
In pursuit of heightened levels of control and feedback it adopts the latest race-track
bred technologies, but adapted and evolved to create a machine that can be many things
to many riders. The harmonic growl of the flexible and responsive V4 motor may rekindle
the emotions inspired by previous iconic VFRs, but its unique heartbeat engine feel
and an unrivalled level of manageability set the new VFR apart, not only from its
forbears - but also from every bike currently available.
The VFR1200F also introduces Honda Dual Clutch Transmission, the world’s first fully
automatic dual clutch transmission for large-displacement motorcycles. To respond
to rider demands through a broad range of conditions and situations, the transmission
offers three operating modes: two full-auto modes (D-mode for relaxed, fuel efficient
operation and S-mode for sports riding), and a six-speed gear-select mode for full
rider control via electronic trigger-shift controls that deliver the same shifting
response as a manual transmission.
