While I like Hondas in general, Honda has a habit of releasing models nobody asked for. The VFR1200 in 2010 was one of them. They "sold" those in the USA for a mere 3 years before they dropped it due to lack of sales. The Crosstourer is just a reincarnation of that bike in an ADV form. So it is heavy and thirsty and detuned for torque. The other Honda flop was the VFR800 in 2014. They were still trying to sell 2015 models in 2018! And Honda being Honda, they were not discounting them heavily so the bikes sat and probably still sitting in a few showrooms in the US. Probably one of the worst bikes Honda ever released in memory. Heavy, low powered, expensive. Having said that, Honda does hit home runs....AT is one, CBR500x is another one. Goldwing too.
