The Dawn of a New Era

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. A machine that can be many things to many riders. From the distinctive X-shape headlight to the flowing lines of the unified aerodynamic surfaces, the VFR1200F surpasses everything before it. So special, it’s in a class of one. The ultimate road-sport machine. The ultimate Honda.

Beauty is nothing without intelligence – When you climb onboard the new VFR1200F, you will immediately sense something very striking. It seems to have been created specifically for each rider. You find yourself sitting more in it than on it: the result of ground-breaking, ergonomic design and intelligent engineering. The uniquely sculpted shape of the dual-layer fairing embraces you while efficiently guiding the flow of air around you: increasing stability and keeping both you and the engine cool. Ease open the throttle and you experience a seemless blend of power and poise. Effortless harmony between rider and machine, mile after mile.

Power to move you – A Honda V4 engine moves you in so many ways. The tangible aura of power. The raw, compelling note that only a V4 can produce. The VFR has a completely new power plant. Inspired by the track, perfected for the road. The enticing pulse at idle, giving way to an invigorating unmistakeable growl from the uniquely designed muffler at full throttle. The acres of responsive torque and useable power to take you effortlessly away from the crowd, or smoothly through the graceful curves of a mountain road. A rush of pure adrenaline, or the serenity of a day’s relaxed cruising. A revolutionary cylinder layout and UNICAM configuration makes the engine broader at the front, narrower at the rear, to give the bike a slimmer waist and you a narrower seat. Perfect mass centralisation with superlative feedback, control and comfort. The VFR’s V4 engine has it all.

Instinctive, effortless control – Everything about the new VFR1200F has been designed to put you in control. It responds like an extension of your own instincts, creating an invigorating blend of precise riding feel and effortless handling. To achieve this, we created a completely new low-maintenance shaft-drive system that any experienced biker would swear feels just like a chain-drive. A unique new ‘throttle-by-wire’ system enhances rider connectivity. Throttle feedback is instant and decisive, for razor-sharp acceleration, superb manoeuvrability and enhanced fuel economy. Onboard, the ergonomic hand controls and intuitive instrument panel are function and elegance personified. Instinctive and effortless control: the defining character of the VFR1200F riding experience.

Exhilarating freedom of choice – Show the VFR1200F a pulse-quickening mountain road and you will quickly discover the soul of a performance thoroughbred. Take it on a long and leisurely ride with a passenger and you will experience refined road manners and relaxing comfort. Versatility that is more
than rewarding, it is simply awe-inspiring.

‘Ma’ and ‘Tsuya’ – Two Japanese values that find their perfect expression in the all-new Honda VFR1200F. ‘Ma’ describes the space around an object that reveals a new perspective: the unique connection between the visible and the invisible. Each component of the VFR1200F has been meticulously considered and works in complete harmony with every other component. ‘Tsuya’ describes the lustre of an object: its visual charm, how it captivates the eye. How the lines, curves and
angles of a design come to life. Ultra-modern materials and an unprecedented, mirror-like finish make the VFR1200F the embodiment of ‘Tsuya’.
