Built to deal with whatever the road ahead has to offer, the VFR800X Crossrunner’s muscular and minimal adventure-sport style puts the hardware on display, showing off the V4-VTEC engine and aluminium twin-beam frame. Increased suspension travel – front and rear – smoothes rough tarmac, while the upright riding position and wide handlebars deliver razor-sharp steering response and agile handling from city block to mountain pass. It’s made to handle long distances too, with a seat height that adjusts to either 815mm or 835mm for optimal comfort.

LED Lights

The VFR800X Crossrunner’s distinctive x-shape headlight uses a bright ‘white light’ LED for improved visibility and beam penetration. This unique design is combined with the led taillight to reduce electrical drain on the engine.

All round performance

The V4-VTEC engine produces more torque and power, with a characterful feel and unique, thrilling howl through its 4-2-1-1 exhaust as revs rise.

Housing it is a chassis honed in the VFR800F; including the new 43mm Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) telescopic fork, featuring 131mm axle travel and stepless spring preload adjustment. This combines with the gas charged rear-shock to create a ferocious do-it-all adventure-sport tool that welds all-round practicality to focused performance.
