The Honda VFR1200F was a sport-touring motorcycle that first debuted in 2010 and kept the V4 architecture from the previous VFR models, while the engine and transmission were completely new designs, with a displacement increased from 800 to 1200cc.
The bike was primarily designed in Honda's Italian and German design studios under the supervision of the Spanish designer Teofilo Plaza. The Exterior featured an aerodynamic bodywork borrowed from the Honda MotoGP machine with a dual-layered fairing that pulled heat away from the rider and an X-shaped nose that kept the bike stable at high speeds.
The Honda VFR1200F was the first motorcycle that featured Honda's Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) system, which offered smoother gear changes in any riding mode. The system offered the choice of manual gear shifting and two fully-automatic modes, such as the general use D-Mode and the S-Mode for high-performance riding.
In 2015, the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer released the Honda VFR1200F, a futuristic sport-touring motorcycle packed with loads of advanced technology developed from the MotoGP world and created with Honda-style innovation.
Also, the bike was available with optional Honda Genuine Accessories, such as a 29 L saddlebag kit, a 31 L top box with a quick-detach system, nylon inner bags, a 7 L tank bag, a sporty three-position adjustable screen that integrated with the standard windscreen for more wind protection, heated grips, a center stand, and a wind deflector set.
As for performance, the 2015 Honda VFR1200F took its muscles from a 1237cc four-stroke four-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that delivered an output power of 170 hp with maximum strength at 10,000 rpm and 129 Nm (95 lb-ft) of torque at 8,750 rpm.
