Aside from featuring a V4 engine, the new sports tourer also benefits from a fully automatic dual clutch transmission and available in three color schemes, namely Candy Prominence Red, Seal Silver Metallic and Pearl Sunbeam White.
As we said, Honda also announced increased servicing intervals of 8,000 miles, or annually, after the initial 600 mile ‘running in’ service, therefore reducing ongoing servicing costs and maintenance. The VFR1200F also comes with three years AA roadside assist cover.
“The new VFR1200F is the ultimate machine for style and great all-round riding appeal. We’re very pleased to be able to offer currently industry-leading warranty cover as well as increased servicing intervals to reduce annual running costs for our customers,” stated Steve Martindale, General Manager of Honda Motorcycles in the UK.
“We’ve worked hard to ensure the VFR1200F is priced attractively to reflect its quality and uniqueness, but also market conditions and customers’ expectations, whilst further taking into consideration the forthcoming VAT rise. This, coupled with the after-sales added value and reduced cost of ownership to customers will add to the already desirable nature of this bike and we look forward to seeing it in our dealerships and out on the roads next Spring,” Martindale added.
Those who want to take a closer look or test the machine are invited to visit any one of Honda’s motorcycle dealerships nationwide on Saturday 13 or Sunday 14 February 2010, for the ‘Start Something Special’ Valentine’s weekend official launch.
