The VFR's liquid-cooled 1,237cc V4 powerplant is Honda's first throttle-by-wire engine, and features a more compact design with Unicam valvetrain design incorporated from Honda's offroad bikes. The engine has an asymmetrical exhaust length, and comes mated to either a dual clutch automatic transmission that can be operated in three modes (and shifted manually), or a slipper clutch-enabled standard transmission. The bike's "dual layer" fairing and bodywork is constructed so no rivets are externally visible.
The 2010 Honda VFR 1200F will be available in Candy Red when it goes on sale in Spring, 2010. Though pricing won't be announced until December 2009, expect this sport tourer to get slapped with a premium price tag.
