The low speed handling of this bike is the squirreliest and most unstable I’ve experienced in twenty years. And it wasn’t just me. This was a rental bike and both side bags were rashed all to hell. If there’s some point to this bike it completely escapes me.
I rode one in the Summer of 2011 and I absolutely loved it! The riding position seems a lot like a supermotard to me. I've always loved the VFR and I thought Honda had done an awesome job with the V-tec on the Crossrunner.
