Honda's shock new 700cc auto scooped

1 of 2

These world exclusive spy shots show a radical new Honda with an all-new 700cc parallel-twin engine and the advanced dual clutch transmission of the VFR1200F.

The bike was snapped in the Alps last week as it underwent final testing with the Honda Research and Development team. It is expected to be officially shown in November at the Milan show and will be on sale next year.

The new middleweight is an intriguing mix of high and low tech, which seems likely to appeal to less-experienced riders – particularly those progressing from twist and go scooters – or city commuters demanding ease of use and low running costs.

You can read the full story, with more images of this naked version, a fully faired scooter variant and full details and images of the production version of the Honda VFR1200 Crosstourer in the May 25 issue of MCN on sale now.
