The original design team set out to create a machine that gave the rider a sense of challenge and the facility to explore.Equipped with a 1,237cc V4 engine, advanced chassis and electronic package – Combined ABS and Traction Control System (TCS) – the Crosstourer firmly planted a flag at the high-performance end of the adventure segment.As a go-anywhere, do-anything tool it has few peers – but its real difference lies in the addictive power and soundtrack produced by its soulful V4 engine, something unique in this class

Engine

The Crosstourer’s engine continues Honda’s proud heritage with V4 technology, with its uniquely smooth, flexible delivery of impressive power and torque. Offering precise control of this power thanks to its throttle-by-wire system, and an engaging, characterful sound - due partly to carefully-sized chambers in the exhaust - the Crosstourer’s engine is integral to its appeal.The V4 configuration is slim and compact, reducing frontal area and aiding mass centralisation. It also features a very closely set pair of rear cylinders, making the engine narrower at the back. Further contributing to the 1,237cc, 16-valve engine’s compact dimensions is Honda’s Unicam technology, also used on the CRF range of motocross machines. This SOHC configuration helps reduce the size and weight of the cylinder heads, and optimise combustion chamber shape.A combination of a 76° angle between the two banks of cylinders and a crankshaft with 28° phasing between the crankpins virtually eliminates vibration. Since there’s no need for a power-sapping balancer shaft the result is higher output and uneven firing intervals give an intimate connection to the engine.
