Honda VFR1200 blog: Dearly Beloved

Wed, 25 Nov 2009

FOR WHAT we are about to receive...

We all know motorcycling's a religion, which may be why Honda chose a defunct church to launch the 2010 VFR1200F - the bike the company reckon will take the sports-touring market by storm.

Rain-soaked Spain is the venue for the European launch of the all-new Honda VFR1200F. Tomorrow's 300km route on the new 160bhp machine will take us along some of the country's twistiest tarmac; a generous smattering of fast motorway and maybe a heavy dose of Spain's rush-hour madness, which should provide us with a rounded picture of Honda's latest V4 baby.

Check back tomorrow for more info on the new 1200cc machine.

PS: Honda bigwigs reckon new shaft drive is as good (and as slick) as a chain.

Should be interesting...
