Honda VFR1200: old vs new

MCN, 17 May 2012 15:30

Honda’s V4s have come a long way since those early, flawed, chain-driven cam 750s of the early ‘80s. That first VF750S led to the VF750F and on to the VF1000 in all its forms spawning junior siblings such as the VF400F and VF500F along the way. After that came the VFR dynasty which prospers to this day. And along side ...

To find out we pitted the new bike head-to-head with the outgoing 2011 version on both road and dyno. And even though our test took place in cold and damp December ...

Staff bikes: Honda VFR800X Crossrunner - It's time to retyre

Phil West, 05 October 2011 17:01

Time for a change. The turning of three-thousand-odd miles has seen both the fading of Crossrunner's OE Pirelli Scorpions' ability and my faith in them. Don't get me wrong: the Scorps aren't a bad tyre. They've been consistent and predictable enough (in a humdrum sort of way) in all sorts of riding, from routine 30-mile work commutes in all kinds ...

2011 Honda CBR250R first ride - 'the Ninja 250R has a real rival'

Matt Shields, 14 December 2010 11:24

Although we’re likely to be waiting until February until the first shipments of Honda’s new CBR250R lightweight arrives in the UK (perhaps no bad thing considering the current icy snap), the newcomer has already been launched in south-east Asia.
