New 1200 Crosstour?
« on: December 15, 2011, 11:36:48 AM »
With the new 1200 Crosstour due out next year I was wondering how many of us would consider it as a possible replacement for the Crossrunner as it is a similar type of bike
I shall certainly be taking a test ride but with my short legs and dodgy knee I fear it may be too big

I would be interested if I was more into adventure biking, but for everything else, the CR seems to be the perfect bike.

Voted.

I will test ride (am already on Blade Honda, Stratford on Avon, list to contact when it comes on Demo) - looks really great (even in that sweety colour :001:) - but I suspect it is too big for me as well - but you never know - CR carries 250kg's (full tank wet) pretty well.

Would like to try a shaft bike before I hang me boots up and time is running out so.....

Shaft drive is one thing I miss with CR having owned many shaft drive bikes in the past. Shaft drive is a real boon when touring in my opinion

I suspect its going to be much like the vfr 1200.  too heavy, too expensive.
I think as a do it all road bike the crossrunner will be the better bike of the 2.  and given how much its going to cost, its in multistrada territory.  I know what id have in my garage......

I have no interest at all in the Crosstour, same reasons as others, price, size, wieght. For me the XR gives comfort and fun all round. It also has a good mileage in the tank, why the need to change ?

No real reason I just thought that if anyone was thinking of changing then the Crosstour might have been one bike that they might be looking at. I for one loved the engine in my VFR1200.

I have to admit that if it wasn't for my dodgy knee I would still have my VFR1200 DCT. As to expensive I guess it depends how much you want something. I don't smoke seldom drink and work long unsociable hours. All my disposal income goes on enjoying my bikes and football. having said that the latter is not always enjoyable if your a Spurs fan :008: :008:

I suspect it will more likely appeal to those looking to upgrade from a Varadero.
