Looks like a cross between the Varadero, S10 and R1200C to me.

Gentlemen,
here’s the new Crosstourer, successor of our Varadero, introduced few minutes ago in Milan. Please notice that it is just a concept which may go through further changes, and will not come to the market before 2012. Interesting points:
- three alu cases with adjustable volume
- all-metal anti-slip footpegs (without gum)
- height-adjustable screen
- all-LCD dashboard without any analog clocks
- crash bars with additional lights
- lens-optic front light
- wide handlebars, switches from VFR
- engine and frame from VFR, as well as single side swingarm, complete shaft drive is from VFR
- this concept is equipped with dual-clutch transmission from VFR, but hopefully there will be a option with normal transmission
- no official technical data yet

[alb]695[/alb]
Also a new adventure model was introduced in Milan – VFR800X Crossrunner, which is equipped with 800 cc V4 engine and frame from VFR800.

Can't rescale the pics, so please visit this link:

More pics and info on A&R bright and early this morning
http://www.asphaltandrubber.com/bike...a-crossrunner/

then there's the off-roady looking version (beasts I know, but it really looks like a road bike with off-road styling to me - note the sticky tires etc).

I like this version

I had to give it a second look, I thought I was looking at an R1200GS Adv.

Incidentally, if its the same V4 as in the VFR1200, expect K1300S levels of zoomy zip.

While it probably won't take up a spot in my garage, it's nice to see Honda finally come out with an option at least.

Let's hope they bring it to the US.

I am looking forward to this coming out! I have an @ at present and would like a modern enduro too. Didn't want a gs as there are toooooo many about so that looks just the ticket! I saw on some site earlier that Feb 2012 is time for it- any truth in that? Seeing as my @ only just reaches 40mpg I would be looking to this for some euro trekking, and keep the @ for the rough stuff.

Will be pestering the local Honda guys for info!!

If I can get a high res photo of this bike, it will become my new wallpaper, and the object of my MC lust...
