Honda VFR1200F - DCT vs standard
2010 VFR1200F with DCT


   
   
VFR1200F

Radical doesn’t begin to describe the all-new 2010 VFR1200F. After they took it for their inaugural spin Cycle World called it “revolutionary.” And while that certainly describes this incredible new machine, it doesn’t begin to do it justice. The list of innovative technology is endless: the layered, MotoGP-inspired bodywork that’s literally fused in seamless perfection for optimal aerodynamics. An all-new, super-compact Unicam® design 1237cc V4 engine, fueled by Honda’s first-ever Throttle By Wire system. Combined Braking with standard ABS. But perhaps most striking of all is the game-changing Honda Dual-Clutch automatic Transmission: Six speeds, two clutches, and your choice of changing gears with a pair of F1-style paddle shifters or letting the bike shift itself. It’s a feature that has completely blown away even the most cynical magazine test rider. And if you prefer, there’s also a second version of the VFR1200F equipped with a conventional six-speed gearbox and a slipper clutch.
