Funny isn't it?

When Yamaha made the TDM way back in 1991, it got a universal panning. 20 years later and even the big H are doing it

HONDA PARTS BIN RECYCLING SCANDAL.......READ ALL ABOUT IT!!!

Well,i knew the recession was hitting even the mighty HONDA hard but scratting around the back of the warehouse and parts bins looking for all those old VFR800'S they couldn't sell,then getting the design engineer students to think they're coming up with a new MODEL called the CROSSTOURER and sell it too the unsuspecting public,well,Honda,what have you become?:blink:

Suely things aren't that bad,i mean this is a VFR800,with a new set of clothes,lick of paint and a few other new bits & bobs thrown in!

They got one thing right though.......Honda have shown the responsible side of mass industry by RECYCLING instead of throwing away.

I bet the price will be recycled and then some!? :mad:5/10

Nearly There

I don't think this is as bad most people are making out , only wish Honda would keep things a tad more simple . If they had built this with the non V tech motor , ditched the CBS and ABS the bike would come in a lot cheaper , a lot lighter and a lot less cheaper to run . Perhaps I'm a touch simple though .......

Wonder what else is the same...

Some of the good things on the VFR1200 were the 8000 mile service intervals and the shaft drive. However it was still too much for me and I hated the idea of the peanut sized fuel tank so I looked briefly at the VFR800. I really liked the idea of the VFR800 but the chain drive, high service costs and small servcie intervals put me off. Have Honda kept these but reduced the size of the fuel tank and made it ugly?

It looks like a scooter. Does it have an electric motor? What advantage does it have over a simple half faired bike? None. Honda are losing the plot. And it's too expensive- but then so is everything - especially the VFR1200- (grumpy old man moment there)

They say 10 grand - scary part is that Kevin Ash says it won't be in showrooms until the Autumn. That'll kill the bike stone dead.

Crossrunner

At least the V4 motor is going to live on, bound to be good with that pedigree looks like a multistrada which will last the course. Well done Honda ;)

Another dud from Honda!

Maybe its just me, but can anyone point to any part of this bike that looks like an 'adventure' bike? Where is the bash plate/ upswept exhaust/ knobbly tyres etc? Its just another dud like the DN01, (still don't know what it is!) VFR1200 and the new highly forgetable 750 cruiser thing. And if they can fit a 21 litre tank in this bike, why only 18 in the VFR1200 ?  Is Honda trying to get out of the bike market? The only decent bike they make is the Fireblade! And don't forget the wobbly Pan! The police didn't get rid of them for nothing.
