Honda has confirmed that the Crosstourer concept shown at the 2010 EICMA show in Milan will go into mass production. The Crosstourer uses the V4 engine from the VFR1200F, plus long travel suspension, a more upright riding position plus the option of a Dual Clutch Transmission.
Though images of the Crosstourer concept from last year area available, Honda is giving away very little information at this point about what differences the production model will have to the concept.
The only statement released by Honda on the bike so far comes from the leader of the development team, Yosuke Hasegawa:”The Crosstourer offers a high-level fusion of vibrant off-road styling, upright riding position, V4 engine power and Dual Clutch Transmission that offers more direct power transmission and easy operation. We are convinced that we have successfully brought out new value in what can be termed the true Crossover Concept.”
