Overview

Honda Crosstourer Highlander T

Crosstourer Highlander T

The Crosstourer, launched in 2012, is Honda’s range-topping adventure sports touring motorcycle. The original design team, led by Large Project Leader Yosuke Hasegawa, set out to create a machine that gave the rider a sense of challenge and the facility to explore. Japanese phrases used during concept creation and development translated into English as ’I can do this’.’I can go to a place like that’.’This’ could be a long distance journey on fast major roads and motorways, or a sinuous ride to a remote destination in the mountains.

Driving the overall development vision was the concept of ’sophisticated hard duty’ Accordingly, Honda’s engineers wanted to create a motorcycle that was fit for all purposes - a perfect travel companion - while also offering a premium and unique design complemented by cutting edge technologies.

And it did just that. Equipped with a 1,237cc V4 engine, advanced chassis and electronic package - Combined ABS, Traction Control System (TCS) and the option of Honda’s Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) gearbox - the Crosstourer firmly planted a flag at the high-performance end of the adventure segment.

As a go-anywhere, do-anything tool it has few peers - but its real difference lies in the addictive power and soundtrack produced by its soulful V4 engine, something unique in this class. After two years and many tens of thousands of development miles, Honda’s engineers have chosen to evolve their flagship adventure sports tourer further, and the 2014 model features a host of detail upgrades to further enhance the riding experience.
