Milan Show: Honda Crossrunner

800cc V4 Adventure bike

This is the new Honda Crossrunner 800. Honda are at pains to point out that it's not an off-roader or even a soft roader but a new type of adventure sports machine.

The biggest clues to this tarmac-only focus are the 17in road wheels and street tyres, short travel suspension and an 800cc V4 engine. Honda say it's all the best bits of a naked bike (upright riding position) coupled with the best bits of an adventure bike without the massive seat heights and boingy suspension.

Other important bits? It's got a 21 litre fuel tank, passenger-friendly ergonomics and a reworked V-tech system to get rid of that massive kick at 6,000rpm.

We'll get some pics of the rear of the bike when they let us....
