2010 Honda VFR 1200 V4 photos suggest that the new Honda with single-sided swingarm and shaft-drive could turn out to be a competitor for Kawasaki 1400GTR.
The Honda VFR 1200 is said to feature a 1200-cc engine with selectable cylinder deactivation system. This feature will reduce fuel consumption by halting fuel supply to specific cylinders under low load conditions, such as when running at a constant speed on a highway. This technology has been used in Honda’s four wheelers and has proved to be efficient as there has been noticeable increase in the mileage of vehicles.
When the cylinders are shut, the engine virtually becomes a 600cc parallel-twin engine, which increases the fuel economy.
Honda President Takeo Fukui, had said that such a technology could increase the 2010 Honda VFR 1200 V4’s economy by 30 per cent.
