The Crossrunner is powered by a 782cc 90 degree V4 VTEC engine similar to that found on the VFR800, claiming 100hp at 10000rpm and 54 ft-lb. at 9500rpm. Fueling the engine is a 5.7 gallon tank for longer rides before needing to refuel. Honda says the Crossrunner has a curb weight of about 530 pounds.
Translation: - you know what happened to all those VFR-parts we had left after the VFR1200 was designed?.........

The Crossrunner (800cc V4) is basically a 6th-generation VFR (2002-2009) with different plastic. Complete with Pseudo-VTEC, single-sided swingarm, linked brakes, yada-yada. As a VFR, the ABS model weighed 550lb with a full tank.

The Crosstourer (1200cc V4) is basically a 7th-generation VFR (2010-). One blurb I read said it will be equipped with the too-clever-by-half dual-clutch transmission. As a VFR, the ABS/DCT model weighs 613lb with a full tank.

Honda = fail

I have three of them in my garage, but they haven't introduced a model I'd be interested in buying in many years.

There's good images of both the 800 and the 1200 at Sport-Touring.Net. In my mind, the 800 is a clone of the MultiStrada, and the 1200 looks so much like the Tenere that if it were blue....you'd never know the difference.

Looks "busy", too many styling cues without a clear purpose
