Milan bike show: Honda Crosstourer concept revealed

1 of 2

Honda has just revealed the Crosstourer concept – a brand new adventure sport bike powered by the VFR1200F engine.

The Honda Crosstourer adopts the Dual-Clutch version of the VFR’s V4 engine in a unique chassis with clear off-road intentions, unlike the road-only Crossrunner also revealed today.

It has an alloy beam frame with Honda’s advanced shaft drive, and wire-wheels carrying on/off road tyres.

The styling takes inspiration from both the Crossrunner and the VFR, but is markedly more rugged. Crash bars, handguards and spotlights all feature, and the Crosstourer concept also has the obligatory aluminium panniers.

It’s only as concept for now, but unlike previous concepts this one is a rolling, complete machine – don’t expect too much change when the Crosstourer reaches production.
