The D suffix after the usual VFR1200F badge stands for the Dual Clutch Transmission. Becoming increasingly popular among Honda fans, the DCT systems provide the convenience of either automatic or manual shifting, reducing power gaps and offering a smoother ride even when a lot of shifting is involved.

The 2012 VFR1200FD is the benchmark for V4 sport-touring machines, but it is also a handy commuter which will make navigating the urban clutter much easier and by all means, funnier.
