Remarkable new direct air induction system feeds
straight from nose of fairing through massive hollow steering head casting and
directly into aircleaner box for maximum intake efficiency.
intake port built strong enough to act as sole upper cowl stay. Intake port
features electrically operated valve to reduce air intake at lower speeds for
stronger low-to-midrange performance. Valve opens at a predetermined engine
speed and throttle angle to provide optimal air intake for maximised high-speed
Large-volume 18-litre fuel tank features built-in
electronic fuel pump to provide steady flow of fuel to injectors.
High-performance engine designed to use high-octane fuel ONLY.
Newly designed V-twin engine features over 90% all-new parts, larger bore,
shorter stroke and new cam geartrain for higher speeds and dramatically increased,
competition-ready power output.
New 100mm pistons (replacing VTR1000F’s
98mm units) the largest ever made by Honda. New 63.6mm stroke reduced from VTR’s
66mm while achieving big 10.8 : 1 compression ratio. Pistons ride in new aluminium
ceramic composite sleeves, like RVF/RC45 and other high-performance engines.
New PGM-FI fuel injector system features dual-injector throttle bodies
mounted with quad-jet injector nozzles and higher pressure fuel pump feed for
optimum atomisation and distribution of fuel into intake flow.
Higher-capacity dual side-mounted radiators meet cooling requirements of higher-power
engine with 120% larger volume than units mounted on VTR1000F.
aluminium ‘Combined Pivot’ frame features massive triple-box-section twin spars
and longer lower extensions that enclose ends of swingarm pivot shaft to provide
enhanced rigidity in both road and racing applications.
innovative new cast aluminium steering head casting with large hole in front to open
directly channel air to aircleaner for maximised high-speed power potential. Section
surrounding steering stem moulded in aerodynamic tapered shape to minimise turbulence
in air flow.
Responsive 43mm inverted telescopic front fork breaks with
Yagura-style Hybrid swingarm features massive
dual-box-section extruded spars mated to large cast aluminium cross-member pivot
section. Rear suspension features full damping adjustability for smoothly progressive
