Leave the gridlock behind and head for the twisties with the all-new VFR800X Crossrunner.
Athletic, adventure styling meets thrilling V4 performance to make an all-rounder with attitude.
FIND YOUR ESCAPE
Break free from the city.
The new VFR800X Crossrunner sets you free. Sharing a chassis with the VFR800F, it wields pumped-up adventure-sport styling with a boosted V4-VTEC engine and taut long-travel suspension. It’s practical too, with full LED lighting front and rear, 5-stage heated grips and adjustable seat height. The Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) system and Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) offers extra assurance in demanding riding conditions.
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.
We’ve spent years developing technology that makes your ride effortlessly enthralling. And we believe a greater awareness of the road should come with greater control.
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.
Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC)
The Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) system carefully monitors rear wheel traction, using smooth engine management to ensure that the tyre maintains grip in slippery conditions. Controlled from the handlebar, it features three modes selection, which appear within the LCD instrumentation.
The power to escape
The 782cc liquid-cooled 16-valve DOHC 90° V4-VTEC engine generates more low-to-midrange torque and peak power. Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) operates one pair of inlet/exhaust valves per cylinder at low rpm, switching to four as it revs.
The LCD dash uses a reverse display against a white LED backlight. The speedometer/tachometer are housed together and there’s also a gear position indicator, fuel consumption/cruising range indicator, clock, ambient temperature gauge and twin trip meters.
The 43mm Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) telescopic fork features 131mm axle travel and offers smooth spring preload adjustment plus rebound damping adjustment. The HMAS gas-charged rear shock operates through Pro-Link and lightweight aluminium Pro-arm swingarm.
Stylish Fine Die-Cast (FDC) hollow aluminium wheels use 120/70 and 180/55 front and rear tyres for maximum grip and mid-corner feedback.
The VFR800X Crossrunner is an all-seasons machine, with 5-stage heated grips offering modulated control – including dash indicator – for use in a variety of conditions.
Peace of mind
Dual 310mm front discs are gripped by radial-mount two-piston brake calipers and managed by Honda’s Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) for consistent stopping power on slippery road surfaces.
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 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.
