General: Honda offering touring extras alongside VFR1200

The Honda VFR1200F has been taking the critics by storm since it hit Australia earlier this year, offering benchmark performance for its sports touring class.

Now both the standard and the VFR1200FD (dual transmission) version come for a limited time with an exclusive top box and pannier valued at $3185 to make this stunning motorcycle even more usable.

The Top Box offers 31L of carrying capacity, and can store one full-face helmet plus extras. Its features a locking quick-detach mounting system with double link hinges and integrated sealing creating a beautifully smooth design.

The specially designed, aerodynamic and fully integrated 29L panniers are fitted directly to the bike in a matching colour, and are conveniently operated with the motorcycle key.

The VFR1200 was built as a machine that can tick all the boxes for a wide range of riders with the concepts of mass centralisation, rider control and aerodynamic efficiency, being key to its design.

The VFR1200’s engine provides its rider with incredibly quick acceleration with a torque curve focused in the low and mid range, making it possible for the rider to simply roll on and off the throttle while powering through bends.

A slipper clutch aids control under intense deceleration whilst the high-volume, twin outlet chrome muffler produces fantastic growl that is unmistakably Honda V4.

The patented layered fairing design is a perfect match of form and function offering a uniquely beautiful shape and, at the same time, offers optimal air flow and heat management for a cool, comfortable ride.

The VFR1200FA is also equipped with the most highly developed brake technology for all-round sports bike use. The addition of a compact and lightweight ABS supports both the motorcycle’s sports riding potential and its touring proficiency.

For those who prefer a choice, the VFR1200F Dual Clutch Transmission version offers both manual as well as automatic shifting.

Knowing that it’s a Honda means every customer benefits from the standard-setting quality and reliability for which the manufacturer is world renowned.

Top box and pannier deal runs from 1 October to 31 December 2010.
