2015 Honda VFR800X Crossrunner
Honda Motorcycles of Europe announced a new 2015 Honda VFR800X Crossrunner.
The Crossrunner, available in the European market, offers an Adventure
Touring riding position, along with a wide-handlebar and longer travel
suspension. The 2015 VFR800X Crossrunner boasts a host of improvements,
which are the first major changes to the bike since it went on sale in
2011. Revisions include more power from the 800cc V4 engine, increased
suspension travel and new sharper adventure styling. Full LED lighting
(headlight, taillight and turn signals) provides a more modern appearance.
The Crossrunner also gets the traction control system from the bigger
Crosstourer model, which Honda calls its Selectable Torque Control System
(S-TCS). he new VFR800X offers adjustable seat height, with two height
options to accommodate riders of different sizes. At the heart of the
machine remains its VTEC-equipped 90┬░ V4 DOHC 16-valve engine, originally
adapted from the VFR800 Sport Tourer. The VFR800X Crossrunner now offers
increased low and mid-range torque. Peak power has increased from 100 hp
(75kW) @ 10,000 rpm to 105 (78kW) @ 10,250 rpm. The improved power,
increased suspension travel and additional standard equipment should make
the Crossrunner a more competitive option in the middle-weight adventure
2014 Honda CTX1300 Review
Dare we say Honda's been binging on Street Glide-style models? Some may
consider it blasphemous to include CTX in the same sentence with Street
Glide, but when it comes to motorcycles sporting fairings with low-cut
windscreens and hard luggage, Honda boasts five new ones: CTX1300/Deluxe,
CTX700 and Gold Wing F6B/Deluxe.
On second thought, it's actually unfair to the CTX and F6B to rank them
among less-performing models such as Street Glides. In commendable fashion,
Honda has taken a risk and created a niche market unto itself, the

Reigning Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Champion Gordon Shedden will be
aiming to keep off the grass when he heads to Silverstone for the final
round of this year's series on 13 October. But he took time out from his
preparations to have a bit of fun, lining up on the grid with three-time
champ and team-mate Matt Neal on a special mower created by their Team
The Mean Mower is a bit different to Gordon and Matt's Honda Yuasa Racing
Civics. It's based on a Honda HF2620 lawn tractor, but the regular 20bhp
614cc V-twin engine has made way for a 1,000cc V-Twin from a Honda
Firestorm motorbike. This delivers 110bhp, and gives a power-to-weight
ratio of 520bhp per tonne -- enabling the mower to do 0-60mph in under four
seconds and hit 130mph.
To cope with this huge pace, the regular mower chassis has been replaced
with a chromoly spaceframe. Suspension and wheels from an ATV help Boost the handling, plus there's a
body-hugging racing seat and Alcantara steering wheel with buttons for the
sequential gearbox. This drives the rear wheels via a chain to a rear axle
sourced from a go-kart. Yet this amazing machine can still cut grass.
The steel cutting bed is replaced by a lighter fibreglass version, and
isn't connected to the petrol engine. Instead, two electric motors spin a
3mm wire cable at 4,000rpm -- proper blades could be a bit dangerous at
100mph. The Mean Mower is similar in concept to a Yuasa Racing Civic, which
is taken off the production line in Swindon, Wilts, and heavily modified.
While the chassis and body are retained, the interior is stripped out and a
roll cage fitted. New front and rear sub-frames are installed, as are
racing-spec suspension and brakes. And while the 2.0-litre engine uses the
same block as the old Civic Type R, a turbocharger is added and most of the internals
are changed. Total output is around 330bhp, which allows the Yuasa Civic to
do up to 160mph.
But how would the BTCC racer compare with the Mean Mower on a lap of
Rockingham's National Circuit in Northants? The track is 1.7 miles long,
has a range of corners and plenty of grass that could do with a trim...
"The only way the mower could win round here is to literally cut corners,"
said Matt. "But if it doesn't, it has no chance. In fact, I reckon I could
give it a 40-second head start and still cross the finish line first."
Was Neal right to be so confident? The way the mower stumbled off the
starting line suggested so. Its tall first gear makes for lazy getaways --
be too aggressive and the engine will stall. But once moving, the Mean
Mower soon gets into its stride. In a straight line, it's quite impressive
-- but the narrow track makes it tricky through corners.
Still, after 40 seconds, the mower had completed over a third of a lap --
leaving the car with plenty of catching up to do. In fact, the Civic didn't
have the mower in its sights until it rounded the penultimate corner. This
was going to be close. As the BTCC racer entered the final hairpin, the
Mean Mower was exiting it and heading down the home straight -- just a few
hundred metres from victory.
But the distance to the finish line proved just enough for the Civic to
close the gap. In the end it pipped the mower at the post, by the narrowest
of margins. We checked the stopwatch: the BTCC car had taken one minute
18.2 seconds to do a standing-start lap. The mower completed it in one
minute 59 seconds -- a difference of 40.8 seconds. We know who won the
moral victory, though, as the Civic can't trim your grass! Little wonder
that these Honda stars are keen to be handed the Mean Mower to cut some
blades of glory in their gardens during the close season.
