About the Honda VFR800X Crossrunner

The Honda Crossrunner motorcycle has a smooth rush of progressive, linear power with abundant torque throughout the rev range and precise control at every parameter of revs, throttle position, gear position, and load. The Crossrunner leverages a sportbike-derived aluminum alloy, a twin-spar frame that provides excellent rigidity, according to Honda.

Up front, 43mm cartridge forks provide front wheel control and rider feedback, while the rear wheel is precisely governed by the Honda Pro-link rising-rate linkage system and a gas charged HMAS damper with coil-over adjustable spring. Both the front and rear Honda Crossrunner suspensions have damping adjustments.

With standard-fit ABS, the triple-disc braking setup of the Crossrunner is only powerful and safe. Twin 296mm floating discs are grabbed by six-piston calipers at the front, and the rear 256mm disc brake gets slowed by a twin-piston caliper.

Attention has also been given to the passenger on the Crossrunner. The low-slung 4-2-1 exhaust system allows an attractive exhaust design, distinctive V4 engine note, and excellent cornering clearance, as well as leaving room for a lower, flatter passenger seat.

In the two-tone combination’s, they emphasize the unique shapes and layers of the bodywork: Graphite Black / Matt Moonstone Silver Metallic; Pearl Fadeless White / Matt Bullet Silver Metallic; Candy Blazing Red / Matt Moonstone Silver Metallic
