Honda Australia Motorcycle and Power Equipment Pty Ltd 1954-1956 Sydney Rd, Campbellfield Vic 3061 www.honda.com.au Experience the ultimate Honda. The ultimate fusion of beauty and function. A narrow waist and sculpted ergonomics for a perfect fit. Exhilarating Honda V4 performance. Instant power with every twist of the throttle. There is something utterly compelling about the V4 engine of the new Honda VFR1200F. A remarkable blend of raw power, never-ending torque and advanced mass centralisation. All expressed in the beat and feel that only a V4 configuration from Honda can deliver. The technology used to achieve this is at once both simple and highly complex in its execution. For example, by completely redesigning the engine layout, Honda were able to produce a shorter engine that allowed them more freedom when positioning it within the frame. This enabled the creation of near perfect weight distribution. The innovation of a new 28o phased shift crankshaft was simple but very effective - reducing the vibration associated with a traditional V4 configuration, but retaing the distinctive linear power delivery and physical sensation that V4 owners know and love. The closed crankcase and UNICAM transmission come from the RC212V MotoGP motorcycle and motocross race machines, while the unique voice of the new exhaust speaks a language to stir the soul. The unique cylinder layout of the Honda VFR1200F also creates a narrow ‘wasp-like’ waist, giving the rider the sensation of sitting more in than on the bike. The rider feels a oneness with the machine because of the feedback it provides and the control it gives. The V4 layout has two asymmetrical pairs of cylinders: a wider pair at the front, and a narrower pair at the rear. It is this unique layout, coupled with the 1-2-4-3 firing order, which produces the distinctive pulsing V4 note sound of the new VFR1200F. A revolution in transmission technology. For unrivaled response and feel. There is no doubting the practical advantages of a shaft drive: reliability and ease of maintenance. But what of the instant thrill of a traditional chain drive? Be prepared for something of a surprise: this is a shaft drive that performs with the instant response and power transmission of a chain drive. The moment you open the VFR1200F’s ‘throttle-by-wire’ system you will experience razor-sharp throttle feedback and acceleration. The bike’s maneuverability and ease of handling is excellent. Shown in detail on the left, the new swing-arm uses an offset pivot allowing the shaft to be mounted further forward in the frame. This compact layout contributes to stability at high speed, better cornering and improved traction control. In addition, a sliding constant velocity joint at the rear of the shaft means the drive is always responsive and there’s no time lag between throttle twist and acceleration.

Keeping you firmly on the road is a Pro-Link rear shock absorber with adjustable rebound damping. A slipper clutch ensures firm footing even during the most energetic downshifts. The new VFR1200F also features six-piston callipers and 320mm discs at the front to deliver phenomenal braking. Make your VFR1200F truly your own. The ultimate accessories for the ultimate Honda. Honda Genuine Accessories has developed a comprehensive range of optional equipment exclusively for the new VFR1200F. Aerodynamic panniers mount directly onto the bike’s integrated pannier mounting points. A high quality top box and fitted tank bag are also available. A luxurious Alcantara seat adds a distinctive and stylish touch. Your VFR1200F, your choice. Superior looks, premium colours. Colour: Seal Silver Metallic Colour: Candy Prominence Red Design, build and finish. Perfect in every way. Each component of the VFR1200F has been meticulously considered and works in harmony with every other component. The sculpted shape of the multi-layer fairing has a functional role: it both optimises heat management for engine and rider cooling, while the aerodynamic air flow helps to increase directional stability. This in turn contributes to the machine’s superb road manners and composure, even on the most demanding and rewarding roads.
