Report Indicates New Honda V4 Has Semi-Auto Gearbox

A report posted on the MCN web site states an inside source at Honda has revealed that the long-rumored 1200cc V-4 sport tourer expected this fall will feature a dual clutch automatic transmission with both manual and automatic modes selectable by the rider. According to MCN, the “VFR 1200″ will be a technological marvel that also features the ability to run on two, three or four cylinders depending on performance/economy needs. If this amazing motorcycle is indeed a 2010 model, we can expect Honda to announce it within the next two months. Stay tuned.
