Here are the first pics of Honda’s new adventure / road bike hybrid, the Crossrunner. Based on the VFR800 engine, it will make 100bhp and 59ftlb of torque.  Read the full story in the next issue of MCN, on sale 3 November.

Can't decide

Hmm, I can't decide if I like the looks or not, some parts I like, and others I just don't. I shall wait untill I see it in the flesh untill I commit to judgement.

As far as I am aware, Honda didn't design this bike to go off road, or even attempt it. Honda released that this was a bike designed to look like an adventure bike, but be road going. I'm still not sure who the bike is aimed at, or who it will attract, but you never know, bike buyers are a funny creature.

Cheers, Chris

Boring!

Can't believe Honda can produce that looks like a derivation of a Deauville, call it a Crossrunner (whatever that is supposed to insinuate) and claim it to be an adventure road bike. What a load of tosh!!! Boring old Honda at it again. Can't see who this bike is targeted at and I bet it will cost an arm and a leg!!!

My eyes!

Kind of looks like a duck... an angry duck... ok on a serious note this is one ugly dull looking bike, actually even worse than being dull it is just very ugly. Shame because it will probably be a really good bike

Obviously

Its Hondas' version of the GS. Why else would it pretend to be able to go off road, be so big, and ugly enough to make small children cry. It does improve on the GS in having a chain and not having its cylinders sticking out the side to make it more ugly. The Tiger 800 will be far better in every way.

Its all gone quiet

Now 8 months since above ill informed garbage postings from folks who show exactly what is wrong with so many of the biking fraternity - full of opinions noy worth hearing.

And this was way before any of them even clapped eyes let alone actually got on one and rode it.

The VFR800X is actually a class machine, typical of the quality that comes out of Honda, and was never intended to be a competitor for GS - the crosstourer launching this year will be.

Do us a favour guys - kep yer heads up yer arses a little while longer in future - yer gobs being given open season is embarrasing for all of you.
