Automobiles in India are coming of age. The new and young India is not only aspiring for better models but is also emerging as a good buying market for super luxury automobiles including premium bikes and cars. Over-whelmed by the response received for its super-luxury bikes - the CBR1000RR Fireblade and the CB1000R street-fighter, Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India Limited is back again with its new sports tourer model – Honda VFR1200F in India.

The bike will be imported as completely built unit in India which means it will attract 110 percent import duty featuring a price tag of Rs. 20-30 lakh. The bike has already received rave reviews from auto critics around the world for its ease of use and performance. It is the successor to the legendary VFR800 sports-tourer but with more fun and comfort of riding a luxury bike. This is one of the most versatile motorcycles from the Japanese brand, which will be able to cater to the requirements of a much larger audience.

The model is expected to be launched on August 02, 2010 and will be powered by 1237cc V4 engine. It is still not clear whether the model will be launched with dual clutch or the conventional single clutch model.

“The VFR1200F has been developed in keeping with previous VFRs; that have delivered a combination of sports and touring capabilities using the latest technologies,” says official release from HMSCI.
