Honda's legendary V4 engine has been a mainstay of Honda's range more several decades now and its widely seen as being one of the best power plants ever made. With a lovely throaty sound and plenty of torque which means that it's really forgiving and pulls like a train in every gear. With the huge success that Honda had with the VFR800F, it was a natural progression for them to develop a crossover variant which took advantage of V4 engine. The Crossrunner was born in 2011 and although it's original design didn't hit the mark with remarks about it looking like a jet ski, the new facelift model really did capture the hearts of the bike buying public. It looks and proportions were spot on and ever since it's been a real contender to any other manufacturer's offerings.,On offer here we've managed to secure ourselves this outstanding example of Honda's new and current shape VFR800X Crossrunner. It is equipped with ABS brakes as a factory standard option. In addition, there are a pair of Honda's smart integrated heated handlebar grips in place of the standard ones. There are controlled with a neat heat controller switch that is built in to the switch itself and offer the heat setting display in the digital clock panel itself. The owner has taken care of it by keeping the servicing up to date so it is accompanied with a full service history and even has a genuine Honda tank protector on it as well.,Having been first registered in June 2016 and having 16k miles on the clock, it's certainly a steel for someone. Being factory finished in the gorgeous Candy Arcadian Red Metallic colour option it certainly is the one to have and unlikely to hang around.,We're including it's first MOT as part of the sale price and including it on our MOT-4-Life scheme too. This should not only save you money on your annual running cost, but give you peace-of-mind as well.,(Subject to a 99.00 vehicle preparation fee).,Doble Motorcycles stock number 12264.,

Doble Motorcycles

86-92 & 103 Brighton Road, CR5 2NG

Why buy from Doble Motorcycles

Doble Motorcycles is a long established family run business founded in 1967 by Mike Doble senior and late brother Chris Doble. It all started with just one shop no. 88 Brighton road selling one or two step through mopeds and motorcycle servicing. Chris managed the bike business while Mike set up a used car showroom across the road at 103, this also took off very well and thrived as the motor industry boomed. Time moved on and expansion was inevitable for the Motorcycle shop. Honda was increasing its model range rapidly with big sellers like the Superdream and CX500. The adjacent shop no. 90 was acquired and soon become filled with exciting new models. But again the market grew and the need to expand soon arrived. Seeming to take over one end of Coulsdon no. 86 was sought and another 50% increase in size took place. Honda's market share also grew to keep customers coming back time and time again. It became apparent that car sales were not able to keep pace with the two wheeled sales, so all resources were pooled together to once again double the business size to give huge choice and diversity to the customer. Doble Motorcycles Selling and specialising in the world's leading makes from day one has been Doble's biggest strength. Mike Doble Junior and Paul Styles now run the dealership along with Mike Doble Senior, Anne Doble, and a good enthusiastic and dedicated team who all love working with motorcycles. Dobles have been nominated Honda dealer of the year four times. The award is not just based on sales, but on product presentation and more importantly, all round customer care. This is something Dobles pride themselves on and a practise, which has earned them a reputation for service & reliability throughout their many years in Coulsdon.

MCN overall review verdict: Honda introduced the second-generation VFR800X Crossrunner in 2015. The previous model (on sale from 2011) struggled to make much of an impression – its VFR800F sports-tourer base was too obvious, the duck-billed platypus styling wasn’t very compelling, and it didn’t offer the all-round appeal of rival adventure and adventure-sport machinery. The first bike’s so-so reputation tarnished this second Crossrunner variant before anyone had even ridden it, and so it’s never been a big seller. And as it’s been around a while the Honda’s specification now lacks the wow of newer alternatives, further reducing popularity. Related: Honda VFR800X Crossrunner long-term test Related: Best touring motorcycles Related: Best new and used Honda motorcycles  Overlook the Crossrunner at your peril, though. This is a great bike. Every time we test it we’re wooed by light-yet-secure handling, a soulful and engaging V4 engine, fabulous quality and refinement. The Honda isn’t quite as fast as Yamaha’s Tracer 900, nor does it have the on-trend colour dash and must-have options of BMW’s F900XR. But neither matters. Performance, ride, finish, character, and the just-so balance of involvement and usability mean the Honda holds its own. It’s a true all-rounder, with wide-reaching skills, impressive dynamic, the ability to shrink long trips... plus a unique Honda feel. The 'matt ballistic black' doesn’t do the bike any favours, but it’s classy in glossy 'candy prominence red'. At £9999 on the road (2020 pricing) it’s well priced too, though the Crossrunner’s extended incisors mean you can actually get one for under £9k. Forget fashion, this is serious value.
