The 2015 VFR800X benefits from revisions to its 800cc V4 engine adding more top end power and mid-range torque, sharper looks all round, longer travel suspension, and new wheels and brakes. Other features include S-TCS, ABS, LED lights, self-cancelling indicators and heated grips as standard.
The 2015 VFR800X combines Honda’s unique 800cc V4 engine with an upright, street-oriented riding position for maximum touring comfort but with the phenomenal performance of its twin brother, the VFR800F. The 2015 VFR800X pushes the concept forward for a stronger all-round sporty ride and sharper modern styling.
The heart of the machine remains its VTEC-equipped 90 degree V4 DOHC 16-valve engine with increased power to 78kW.
The aluminium twin-beam frame features a lighter, revised sub-frame and new aluminium swingarm.
The rider now also benefits from the same kind of Selectable Torque Control System (S-TCS) fitted to the Crosstourer. Two levels of S-TCS are available (plus off), to sense imminent loss of rear-wheel traction, and seamlessly reduce torque to allow the tyre to grip.
The VFR800X is a true VFR – a motorcycle designed for hard riding fun, but with style, comfort and practicality. Accordingly, the seat is now adjustable, offering two height options, and five-stage heated grips. Honda’s self-cancelling indicators are both fitted as standard. New, full LED lighting adds a distinct presence and a premium finishing touch.
