    Default Honda VFR1200



    Honda Brings Dual Clutches to Motorcycles



    NEW YORK — The biggest news to come out of an otherwise lackluster New York Cycle World International Motorcycle Show was Honda’s announcement that the sculpted VFR1200F sport-touring motorcycle will come with an optional dual clutch transmission. Although the technology is becoming increasingly common in automobiles, this is the first time anyone’s bolted it onto a motorcycle.

    Putting a dual clutch gearbox on a motorcycle offers the same laundry list of benefits you find in automotive applications. That means independent clutches for odd- and even-numbered gears, über-rapid shift times, thumb-operated shifting, no discernible clutch grab and smoother shifting without driveline lurch. As if that weren’t enough, the system offers two automatic modes (“D” for drive and “S” for sport) if you grow weary of running through the gears manually. Long story short, Honda says the system shifts faster and more seamlessly than anyone who isn’t named Dani Pedrosa. On paper, it offers the best of both worlds — the performance of a manual with the convenience of an automatic.

    “With the dual clutch in the manual mode, it is literally milliseconds,” says Jon Seidel of American Honda Motor Co. “As quickly as you can use the paddle shifters, the gear engages.”

    Just like in your car, choose “D” mode and the dual clutch transmission defaults to gearing that optimizes fuel economy. If you’re feeling saucy, flip the switch to “S” and you’ll be able to rev that sweet V4 engine higher in each gear to milk more power from it. Manual mode gives you total control — the engine won’t shift up until you tell it to, even if you’re at the redline. The ECU keeps you from downshifting too soon and over-revving the engine.

    Some automotive purists winced as race-inspired semi-auto gearboxes flooded the automotive marketplace. The fact that you can’t buy a new Ferrari with a proper gearshifter seems to some as shocking as it is blasphemous. But consumer demand for the technology has seen it move from high-end Ferraris to more mainstream cars like the Volkswagen Golf. Only time will tell if motorcyclists also embrace dual clutch semi-auto gearboxes.

    “Difficult to say at this early point,” Seidel said. “As this is the world’s first application of this technology on a motorcycle,the initial response has been extremely positive.”

    Honda hasn’t said what the optional gearbox will cost, saying that depends on the value of the Yen when the VFR1200F (pictured above) is released in March. And because this is the first time we’ve seen it on a motorcycle, Honda was hesitant to predict its penetration rate.

    “The dual clutch transmission is an innovative new technology,” Seidel said. “Will it replace manuals? Probably not. But it is technology that works and adds fun and excitement to riding. Riders will also appreciate the fully automatic mode for stop and go city driving”

    Hi Brother FiveFive,

    Honda VFR 1200 cost around 40k OTR, Including Side Panniers.

    Side Panniers Cost around 2k plus with GST.

    INsurance for 1st party 1.2k plus, got it for around two weeks now. Kinda must say I am impress with the Technology that the Ride has to Give. The only down side of this ride is the Tank is only 18.5l which I find SPort Tourers deliever not enough mileage b4 it blinks, if in Sg roads it's alright, for long rides up NS high ways I guess it gona give you abit of a prob.

    Well this ride is Darn Heavy to be honest, and it's my first Ride that heavy. When Riding the weight becomes unnoticeable, tilts into corners like a Sport Bike and it's weird but true it feels awesome. Not only that the Breaks are crazy, it's effective and soft which make me feel that I am in control. (I am saying this because my ex ride Fazer 8, I did change some accessories like Brembo RCS 19 and hell break line hose. I could not control it and felt like I will anytime have wheel locks if I am not careful)

    The heat wise is superbe, I could not feel any discomfort during long or short rides, usually fairing bikes are SUPER DUPER AWESOMELY DEADLYFULLY HOT. But this Rides proofs that FULLY FAIRING BIKE can also be as enjoyable as NAKE BIKES. VFR 1200 lets both PILLION and Rider have different pose during each ride, Pillion could either choose up right postion or like sport bike leaning on the Rider.

    For the Rider you can choose sport pose or touring pose both are comfortable and FUN.

    Well Done HONDA, this is my FIRST EVER ride from you guys and I am Proud of HONDA VFR 1200. CHEERS MATE hopefully I have shared points which some rides needs to know, If I have left out any other points please feel free to post question here and I will try my best to reply ASAP.

    Mine is the DCT Vers. =)

    Pretty Fantastic on the road, there's 3 modes to choose from:

    1) Drive Mode
    2) Sports Mode
    3) Manual Mode

    Different mode fits differently on your choice and perferance, only thing is it's trottle response is pretty sensitive. =)

    Pretty Fantastic on the road, there's 3 modes to choose from:

    1) Drive Mode
    2) Sports Mode
    3) Manual Mode

    Different mode fits differently on your choice and perferance, only thing is it's trottle response is pretty sensitive. =)

    Bros .. planning to get a VFR1200 (manual) .. but was informed that only year of manufacture 2010 available now .. ONR $34k. You think this batch is affected by the recall about metal shavings in the engine? Compared to the Fazer, im jus a bit concrened about the riding posture .. will it be too sports-like? Your views appreciated.

    if you are concerned abt the riding posture, then this bike is not for you.
    but if you are a sports person who enjoys touring w wife/gf/buddies & fuelled by e adrenaline of a sportsbike, then this is for you. because this innocent looking bike is no hellboy, it's actually an angel in disguise. it's deceptively fast. you're always going faster than you think you are. you have to ride it to understand it.

    I so agree to this. I use to ride a '03 CBR 600 but always got left behind by my friends who are on Higher capacity bikes when we ride up North.
    The posture on this bike is slighty more relaxed to a sports bike..

    Anyway, anyone here bought Panniers from Boon Siew or ebay?
    Or anyone willing to let go their panniers?
    Ride with me..

    Tks bro ... sat on it a few times and then tried the Fazer again. Seems like I am able to cope with the VFR's posture. Not as upright as my Fazer but surely not as bad as other sports bikes like the Hayabusa.

    Looks like I may get the manual gear either white or dark grey.

    Dudes, Leo Vince Pipe power wor.

    Haha... =) attached my CF pipe last month it's sooooooo light, compaired to the stock one. Well been riding the DCT around town due to work, most of the time I switch on the sport mode give u better response and great power.

    This bike saved me couple of time due to the ABS I am extermly glad to add on an ABS riding experenice. Those out there who are deciding if this is the ride, this ride is not for the faint hearted =)

    Woots

    Pounds from UK site then compare it to our sg bike price.
    Reason for checking is, for the VFR1200X, UK pricing just released yesterday and its 11475 pounds sterling....
