Honda Sports Touring Range
In 2012 the engine was updated to offer even greater performance, with significantly more refined torque between 2000rpm and 4000rpm. Changes to the PGM-FI fuel injection system, combined with increased tank capacity, meant the VFR1200F can now travel further on a single tank of petrol. The optional Dual Clutch Transmission was improved, with new functionalities. The adoption of a reassuring Traction Control System and along with a more comfortable seating position, further enhance the bike’s all-round capabilities. For 2015 a new white colour scheme has been added.
The legendary VFR800F has sharp, contemporary looks, telescopic fork, Pro-arm swingarm, wheels and for 2017 a revised exhaust system and addition of a STD Power socket.
Other features include adjustable seat height, standard-fit Traction Control System, ABS, heated grips and Honda’s unique new self-cancelling indicators. 10kg lighter than the previous model, with the engine re-tuned for greater low and mid-range torque.
Two factors were key drivers for Honda’s engineers in updating the VFR800F – firstly, to retain and expand the essential VFR qualities that inspire so many, and, secondly, to update the new model with modern features and technologies.
