I called a Honda dealer yesterday. They told me that Honda was supposed to release 2 new mystery bikes in US, but did not know what they were. Could the Crossrunner/Tourer be them?

I had one when I lived in Paris. I'd have another in a heartbeat, honestly.

The 2 models are on top of the CBR250 and CB1000R or are you talking about those 2 models that are due in April?

The VFR1200T seems to have dropped off the radar. Same thing for news about the revised Gold Wing.

These could be the mystery bikes.

Thumb I like

This bike pretty much offers exactly what I want in a future replacement for my V-Strom DL1000. I'd like to see this engine put in the Cross-runner as well.

The way Honda stores are folding their tents in Canada, no thanks. They make nice lawnmowers though...

It looks like the Crossrunner is going to be available in Europe this year.. even though it's a repackaged VFR800, it would make a good touring platform with upright ergos. Will it come here? I doubt it.

Sorry to post this guys. UK price has been released. £9000 GBP. About the same ball park as the Kwak Z1000SX. All the dealers i have spoke too have said if it was over 10 grand it'd be dead in the water. As a concept, it's probably still too oddball for a conservative market like the UK, but i like it and will be having a go asap..

So basically a repackaged VFR for a grand less than the VFR. Seems like a reasonable deal, if it floats your boat.

I'm quite fond of the concept - like a higher displacement Versys, or mini-Multistrada. Not sure why people are bashing it just because it's a reconfiguration of previously used components, especially since the outcome is a great looking road-based tourer that this forum should otherwise be supportive of.

I've never ridden a VTEC VFR though (had a 99), so I have no first hand experience with the systems.

Really nice video. It's in French but I think everyone can appreciate. Looks like a great machine. I definitely want one. A Red one. Mr. Honda USA, are you listening?

$14,500 (approx)

If Honda brings it to market in the US for $11k with ABS, I'll be seriously considering one.
