Honda Crosstourer – more details

It actually doesn't look at all bad. Trouble is the V4 motor does add a lot of weight.

We all knew the Crosstourer was coming but now we have some new pics and details released via the EICMA show.

More Super Tenere than GS, no?

It’s based on the VFR1200F, but with the motor detuned to 129hp (@7,750 rpm), with 93 ft.lbs of torque on tap. The Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) is optional, which would offer two modes – regular and sport, but Combined ABS and traction control come as standard.

Drive is by shaft (apparently compulsory for all 1200 adventure bikes) along with a 19″ front and 17″ rear wheel (thankfully cross spoked for off-road use and tubeless tires).

Curb weight is a chunky 275 kg (285 kg with the DCT option), which is a substantial 46 kg heavier than BMW’s R1200GS! Hmhh.
