Features of the 2010 VFR1200F include Honda MotoGP’s engine technology and architecture, a 1237cc liquid-cooled 76-degree V-4 engine, Unicam valvetrain, an optional dual clutch automatic transmission with manual mode and automatic mode with two D/S modes and paddle-style shifters as well as a Honda slipper clutch in the manual-shift and GP technology layer-concept aero fairing.
