Honda has spawned a new motorcycle using the VFR1200F engine. The VFR1200X adventure tourer uses the same 1,237 cc V-four, which is detuned to 127 hp. It has been available in Europe for a couple of years already and gets a few mild upgrades for 2016. It rolls on a 19-inch/17-inch front/rear spoke wheel combination, and features selectable ride modes and linked ABS. A Dual Clutch Transmission version weighs a bit more, and costs $1,000 extra.
