    'Crossrunner'. Do you like it? I have to say I am not keen on it. It does not captivate the spirit of the bike for me  :151:
    It's a bit of a 'runner', but there is nothing 'cross' about it!  :015:

    I use VFR800X. Only a Hondarider knows the difference between Crossrunner and -tourer

    Often thought about this before I sold mine..don't think Honda are very imaginative apart from the Fireblade when it comes to naming their bikes. Maybe the "elements" should be the common thread in naming bikes
    I would therefore have gone for CrossFire!!

    As a guy who was known as quite a good writer said What's in a name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet

    The trouble is if you call it a VFR800X most people envision the sports bike (most insurance companies do too!).  If I call it a Crossrunner I then have to explain that it's sort-of a VFR800 with a more upright handlebars.
    If only everyone could ride one, then they'd understand!
