The distinctive VFR1200F now offers even greater performance, with significantly more refined torque from the V4 PGM-FI fuel injection system, combined with increased tank capacity, meaning the VFR1200F can now travel more than 186 miles on a single tank of petrol. The adoption of Honda's Traction Control System helps ensure the power is put down optimally, safely and securely, even on surfaces with limited grip.
Optional Dual Clutch Transmission - The world's first fully automatic dual clutch transmission for large-displacement motorcycles. This new transmission offers riders the enjoyment of full sports riding capabilities along with effortless and seamless operation, applied in a powerful, large-displacement machine. At the same time, this transmission's superior efficiency can deliver fuel efficiency equal to or better than a conventional manual transmission.
To respond to rider demands through a broad range of conditions and situations, the transmission offers three operating modes: two full-auto modes (D-mode for relaxed, fuel efficient operation and S-mode for sports riding), and a six-speed gear-select mode for full rider control via electronic trigger-shift controls that deliver the same shifting response as a manual transmission.
