FIND YOUR ESCAPE
Break free from the city.
The new VFR800X Crossrunner sets you free. Sharing a chassis with the VFR800F, it wields pumped-up adventure-sport styling with a boosted V4-VTEC engine and taut long-travel suspension. It’s practical too, with full LED lighting front and rear, 5-stage heated grips and adjustable seat height. The Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) system and Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) offers extra assurance in demanding riding conditions.
Built to deal with whatever the road ahead has to offer, the VFR800X Crossrunner’s muscular and minimal adventure-sport style puts the hardware on display, showing off the V4-VTEC engine and aluminium twin-beam frame. Increased suspension travel – front and rear – smoothes rough tarmac, while the upright riding position and wide handlebars deliver razor-sharp steering response and agile handling from city block to mountain pass. It’s made to handle long distances too, with a seat height that adjusts to either 815mm or 835mm for optimal comfort.
The power to escape
The 782cc liquid-cooled 16-valve DOHC 90° V4-VTEC engine generates more low-to-midrange torque and peak power. Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) operates one pair of inlet/exhaust valves per cylinder at low rpm, switching to four as it revs.
The LCD dash uses a reverse display against a white LED backlight. The speedometer/tachometer are housed together and there’s also a gear position indicator, fuel consumption/cruising range indicator, clock, ambient temperature gauge and twin trip meters.
The 43mm Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) telescopic fork features 131mm axle travel and offers smooth spring preload adjustment plus rebound damping adjustment. The HMAS gas-charged rear shock operates through Pro-Link and lightweight aluminium Pro-arm swingarm.
