Honda’s New Adventure Touring Bike Crosses The Divide

Posted:

Debuting at EICMA in Milan this week, Honda's exciting new entry into the adventure touring category - the Crossrunner - represents the best of two biking genres: the flexibility of a naked performance machine with an upright riding position as well as the rugged appearance of an adventure bike.

The Crossrunner is powered by a liquid-cooled 782cc, 4 cam, V4 engine with VTEC that delivers a smooth curve of power with excellent torque throughout the rev range.

This provides the rider a precisely controlled experience, be it for short urban trips or for covering vast distances.

Thee rider's level of control is further enhanced by the wider than normal handlebar configuration, responding accurately yet quickly to small steering inputs, whilst its aluminium alloy twin-spar frame provides excellent rigidity.

The Crossrunner has also been designed to maximise pillion comfort. The passenger is seated on a level, low platform to make mounting and dismounting easier whilst maximising wind protection.

The bike's low-slung 4-2-1 exhaust system leaves room for a lower, flatter pillion seat as well as allowing for an attractive exhaust design, excellent cornering clearance and that distinctive V4 engine note.

Crucial machine data is provided by a 'floating' instrument binnacle, placed high for optimum visibility at all times, including a digital LCD speedometer, tachometer, twin trip meters, a coolant temperature gauge, an ambient temperature indicator and a clock.

A 43mm cartridge-type front fork provides supreme front wheel control and excellent rider feedback.

Cast aluminium Pro-Arm swingarm, Pro-Link rising-rate linkage system and gas-charged HMAS damper with adjustable rebound combine for comfort and precise control.

Braking is of the highest standard and includes high-performing Combined brakes with standard-fit ABS to create powerful, assured braking with optimised control and feedback.

The Crossrunner will make its debut in Australia in the second half of 2011 in two striking colour versions including Graphite Black / Matt Moonstone Silver Metallic and Candy Blazing Red / Matt Moonstone Silver Metallic.
