This is the latest motorcycle that is slated for release by Honda, and a picture of it has now leaked way ahead of schedule, thanks to the internet. The bike features close to 200 HP and variable cylinder management. Of course this bike will get great gas mileage, making it a good option for commuters and bikers alike.
The bike you see here is, according to MCN, the all-new V4-powered Honda VFR1200 that will go on sale next year. The bike is based on the V4 concept that was shown a few months ago and might feature bits like selectable cylinder deactivation, ride-by-wire throttle and brakes, electronically adjustable suspension, C-ABS and perhaps even an airbag. Going by the pictures here, the new Honda, with its single-sided swingarm and shaft-drive (?) looks like a sports - touring competitor to the Kawasaki 1400GTR, which could also be slated for a major update for the 2010 model year.
