One of the readers over at Motoblog.it spotted an interesting bike tooling through the Alps, the new Honda VFR, in what appears to be production form, so he snapped a few photos. Honda technicians were huddled nearby along with another small group, probably a few invited media folks getting a sneak peak before the official unveiling.
The Honda is all set up in sport touring form with hard bags and a nice production paint scheme. For all of the anticipated high tech wizardry inside, the bike looks fairly normal, as previous spy photos indicated. Of course, with all of the variable cylinder, dual clutch action going on, this will be far from your average sport touring machine.
More than a few folks are eager to see the final package and how it performs in the real world. It looks like it’s coming soon.
