The Honda VFR1200FA is one of the most technologically advanced motorcycles built by the Japanese manufacturer. It is powered by a compact 1,237 cc V4 Unicam engine that combines Throttle By Wire and Traction Control systems to deliver mind blowing performances and maximum safety. The engine is fed by a 19 litres fuel tank and its power is kept in leash by a six speed transmission.
The motorcycle’s speed is kept under control by a sophisticated braking system especially tuned for the needs of a sport bike. It includes powerful new six-piston calipers for the front and a dual-piston caliper at the rear that bite on large full-floating discs (320 mm front; 276 mm rear). Moreover, you also get a lightweight Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) that helps you maximize the safety of braking on difficult surfaces.
The Honda VFR1200FA is offered with a starting price of $15,499.

Milan, Italy may be known for its high-end clothing shops and expensive super cars, but Honda is planning something completely new for the city. The Japanese manufacturer is planning on unveiling eight new bikes, and we have our first hunch on at least one of those machines.
Here we have the VFR Adventure Concept, a 1200cc monster designed for people who like speed and long rides on the interstate highways. The new Honda is similar to the Ducati Multistrada.
It seems that the new VFR will get a higher stance over the current model with more ground clearance. Although, there isn’t much besides that, as Honda has been fairly sneaky with this new machine. We have to wonder if we will see it in the United States, but sports bike fans will just have to wait and see.
The new VFR should be going on sale around 2012 or later.
After taking the wraps off its all-new 2010 VFR1200F sport touring motorcycle designed from the ground up as “a ten in every respect,” Honda sits back and enjoys its latest VFR’s success. The bike’s most outstanding feature is the V-4 engine, but only because the dual-clutch automatic transmission is optional.
The 2010 Honda VFR1200F has to be the most aggressive, refined and most likely comfortable new entry in its segment, a bike claimed to adapt to any style of riding or riding situation naturally. It looks like a Honda from every angle, but this motorcycle has also come to show its manufacturer’s achieved goals as it is “a futuristic sport motorcycle for the sheer joy of riding”.
Honda has released a video showing the VFR1200 being assembled at the Kumamoto factory, the mother ship of Honda motorcycle factories and one of the most modern and environmentally factories in Japan. There, on a 426.5 ft (130 meters) long production line, the complete assembly of a motorcycle takes only 90 seconds.
Just when we thought Honda finally had the best VFR recipe designer John Keogh laughs at the current production bike and brings in his own rendering towards what he apparently considers a great idea – combining the best of Honda’s Blackbird and VFR800 models. Claiming that the VFR1200 ’s designer Teofilo Plaza has canceled the engineering and styling features, Keogh fixes that with eight must-have features for a veritable VFR1200F . Please read about those after the jump.
Honda has taken the 2010 Honda VFR1200 to the alps for some nice action pics ahead of next month’s official unveiling and this is where it was spotted by a very dedicated MotoBlog reader, who got the chance to take a few pictures with the bike before it blasted down the tight mountain roads.
Although it was initially thought that the new VFR will have generous dimensions, it hasn’t, so that the innovative technologies such as the dual clutch transmission and variable cylinder management can make a strong point in this industry. Also, we reckon it doesn’t weigh much either.
Although Honda has been gradually releasing information about the new VFR1200 engine and dual-clutch semi-automatic transmission, we never got the change to actually hear that V4 running until now, when we’ve come across this video.
The engine has a healthy idle grunt and, although revved probably not higher than 3000-3500 rpm, it sounds insane. The fact is that no exhaust will ever replace a potent engine of large displacement.
