New Screen 03

We know it’s not going to make ‘story of the year’ or anything, but it’s interesting to see that Honda is updating the VFR1200X Cross Tourer for 2017.

Gone is the bike’s stubby beak to be replaced by a new fairing ‘shoulder’ to improve weather protection for the rider. The bike’s screen has also come on for some serious work with a new, left-handle-operational (item 37 on the last image on this article, below) manual adjustment and a screen area much larger than what is on the current bike. The new bike is also getting engine protection crash bars as standard.


Here’s the current bike:


And here’s how next year’s machine will look:
