According to UK’s MCN, Honda has released a sketch of a new VFR800X, a bike the Japanese firm dubs a "crossover".
The last time Honda used the term crossover to identify a machine it was with the short-lived DN-01. Thankfully this time it seems Honda uses crossover to classify the VFR800X because it is said to combine the attitude of a naked bike with the upright riding position and appearance of an adventure-touring machine.
No news if the bike will have a DN-01-like automatic transmission.
Also said to be coming from Honda is an adventure-touring bike using the VFR1200F V-four engine.
Both bikes will be revealed on November 2 at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan. We’ll keep you posted.
