You know where adventures start? From right where you’re standing—or more likely, sitting. Sure, some folks jet over to Everest or Antarctica for the weekend. But the real adventurers know that you can find excitement right in your own backyard—or a backyard one or two states over. Especially if you’re on a motorcycle. And especially if that bike happens to be a Honda VFR1200X.
The VFR1200X is built for people who know adventure isn’t someplace you go, it’s what you do getting there. It’s an excellent machine for exploring the world around you, and doing it in comfort, confidence, and style. Sporty, athletic, nimble enough for around-town cruising or tight winding back roads, it’s also big enough to reel in those highway miles, and see the Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore, and the Alamo all in the same trip.
And the VFR1200X is loaded with features too—the most important being its 1237cc V4 engine and choice of six-speed transmissions. Best of all, we’re offering a ton of accessories, so you can fine-tune it to how you want to ride.
Where will a 2017 Honda VFR1200X take you? Wherever adventure calls.
