Honda Vfr800x Crossrunner for sale in Uppingham

Crossrunner V4 VTEC 800cc
Honda describe the Crossrunner as having 'taut long-travel suspension' and it’s a bloody good description. The forks and shock might not have the option of high-tech semi-active damping and automatic electric preload, but the VFR800X doesn’t miss such embellishments. The suspension is firm, composed and lets the bike scurry through corners with impressive pace and composure, yet has deliciously plush damping and generous wheel travel that hide potholes and deliver a sumptuous ride. The riding position is great too, with a wide, deep, soft seat that’s got a pleasing '90s feel to it. You’ll happily perch in it all day. Overlook the Crossrunner at your peril, though. This is a great bike. Every time we test it we’re wooed by light-yet-secure handling, a soulful and engaging V4 engine, fabulous quality and refinement. Performance, ride, finish, character, and the just-so balance of involvement and usability mean the Honda holds its own. It’s a true all-rounder, with wide-reaching skills, impressive dynamic, the ability to shrink long trips... plus a unique Honda feel. Honda have made the 800 feel chunky and reassuring, yet nimble and effortless at the same time; handling is neutral, the chassis flowing wherever you place your gaze, while feeling accurate. Clever. The four-piston front brake callipers don’t have the initial grab of newer big-brand fitments on some rivals, but in normal riding offer more than you need. And with a big panicky grab the Crossrunner stops as swiftly as the opposition. There’s a unique character to Honda’s VTEC-equipped 782cc engine. Though VFRs haven’t used gear-driven cams for a while (boo) there’s still a whirring clock-like sound to the V4, backed up with a glorious exhaust sound. VTEC isn’t actually variable valve timing. Timing is fixed; what the system does is change from two valves per cylinder at lower revs to four valves per cylinder at higher revs. It gives the V4 a distinct powerband, and with more top-end revs than a rival twin the Honda feels urgent and engaging...''
