Core of the VFR800X Crossrunner is its 90° V4-VTEC DOHC 16 valve engine . It packs boosted low and mid-range torque for fluid, effortless drive plus improved top-end power compared to the previous model, and features a new 4-2-1-1 exhaust similar to the new VFR800F
In addition the VFR800X Crossrunner rider benefits from Honda Selectable Torque Control system (HSTC) - similar to that fitted to its big-brother VFR1200X Crosstourer. If the system senses an imminent loss of rear wheel traction it seamlessly reduces torque to allow the tyre to grip. Two levels of HSTC are available (plus off) and mode selection appears within the LCD instrumentation.
The evocative aluminium twin-beam frame featured a revised subframe for 2014 while the single sided aluminium swingarm - another VFR signature piece - was made stiffer and lighter. Visually identical to the VFR800F, the VFR800X Crossrunner's suspension has longer travel; 25mm in the two-piece telescopic forks and 28mm in the rear shock. ABS is fitted as standard and the front 17-inch hollow-cast aluminium wheel is fitted with dual 310mm discs, worked by radial-mount four-piston calipers.
The VFR800X Crossrunner is a true VFR - a motorcycle designed for hard riding fun, but with style, comfort and practicality. Accordingly, the seat is adjustable, offering two height options, and 5-stage heated grips and Honda's self-cancelling indicators are both fitted as standard. Full LED lighting adds a distinct presence and premium finishing touch.

We offer two simple and affordable finance options: PCP and VPL. But how do they differ?
Your repayments will be less than traditional finance. You put down a deposit on a bike, and we calculate its Guaranteed Minimum Future Value (GMFV). We deduct this from the price of the bike and your monthly payments are based on what’s left. You can then choose to pay the GMFV and keep your Honda, return it or part-exchange it for a new bike.
This is more like a simple loan. You decide on the model and put down a deposit the same way as with PCP. We calculate for you how much you want your fixed monthly payment to be, and the term. That means you know up front how much your Honda will cost each month until it’s paid off and you own the bike.
