Honda VFR 1200 F: How it Works (Video)

Honda VFR1200F Video

This video was obviously produced for the 2011 Honda VFR 1200 F model, which was only available overseas, but for some reason was recently uploaded on Honda’s US YouTube channel.

Regardless, the video tutorial explains all the basic technological aspects of VFR1200F, Honda’ sport tourer that debuted in 2010, replacing the 800cc VFR era.

The machine was an immediate success throughout the motorcycle industry, mostly due to its torquey 1237cc V4, revamped chassis and the option of a fully-automatic Dual Clutch Transmission, a first of its kind from Honda.

For 2012, Honda made some revisions to the VFR 1200 F, most notably traction control, a second-generation Dual Clutch Transmission, increased MPG and a more comfortable seat.
