2011 Honda Crossrunner

Exceptional stability and impressive performance, all year round

Take the flexibility and exciting attitude of a Naked performance machine, and give it the upright riding position and rugged appearance of an adventure bike; what you’re left with is something special. The Crossrunner.

Along with a unique, stylish image, the Crossrunner’s 800cc V4 motor provides a thrilling riding experience, in all conditions, throughout the year – in and around town or on long rides out across country.

A motorcycle that reflects the riding conditions of this new decade

The Crossrunner – a motorcycle that delivers a uniquely adaptable experience to suit different riding moods. We gave it a wide-barred, upright riding position to offer an experience that magnifies the impressions of speed, acceleration and lean angle. All the while feeling in complete control.

It was the 120 sessions in the wind tunnel that helped us build a motorcycle with such unwavering stability. In fact the airflow technology in the Crossrunner even adds to its trend-setting appearance – which is helped by aesthetically pleasing low slung 4-2-1 exhaust system.

Designed to maximise pillion comfort and create a feeling of unison between rider and passenger, the Crossrunner also addresses the aspect of another strong consideration at initial stage. The engine.

With most sport tourer machines using an in-line four cylinder engine and most adventure motorcycles using a twin cylinder powerplant, the design team had an exciting opportunity. A smooth, flexible and soulful 800cc V4 engine, specifically tuned for a machine that helps a rider find a flowing rhythm.

With the attributes of both a Naked performance machine and an adventure bike, the Crossrunner is a new kind of motorcycle. One that can effortlessly adapt to many different styles of riding.

 

Honda’s exciting new entry into the adventure touring category

The Crossrunner represents the best of two biking genres: the flexibility of a naked performance machine with an upright riding position as well as the rugged appearance of an adventure bike.

The Crossrunner is powered by a liquid-cooled 782cc, 4 cam, V4 engine with VTEC that delivers a smooth curve of power with excellent torque throughout the rev range.

This provides the rider a precisely controlled experience, be it for short urban trips or for covering vast distances.

Thee rider’s level of control is further enhanced by the wider than normal handlebar configuration, responding accurately yet quickly to small steering inputs, whilst its aluminium alloy twin-spar frame provides excellent rigidity.

The Crossrunner has also been designed to maximise pillion comfort. The passenger is seated on a level, low platform to make mounting and dismounting easier whilst maximising wind protection.

The bike’s low-slung 4-2-1 exhaust system leaves room for a lower, flatter pillion seat as well as allowing for an attractive exhaust design, excellent cornering clearance and that distinctive V4 engine note.

Crucial machine data is provided by a ‘floating’ instrument binnacle, placed high for optimum visibility at all times, including a digital LCD speedometer, tachometer, twin trip meters, a coolant temperature gauge, an ambient temperature indicator and a clock.

A 43mm cartridge-type front fork provides supreme front wheel control and excellent rider feedback.

Cast aluminium Pro-Arm swingarm, Pro-Link rising-rate linkage system and gas-charged HMAS damper with adjustable rebound combine for comfort and precise control.

Braking is of the highest standard and includes high-performing Combined brakes with standard-fit ABS to create powerful, assured braking with optimised control and feedback.

The Crossrunner will make its debut in the second half of 2011 in two striking colour versions including Graphite Black / Matt Moonstone Silver Metallic and Candy Blazing Red / Matt Moonstone Silver Metallic.
