 :400: from Yorkshire. Was your VFR1200 a DCT? Have you had a test ride on the Crosstourer? How do they compare?

thanks all

ment to say im from Ayrshire in Scotland 

telbert my vfr is Manual i had a test ride on the DCT vfr and the manual crosstourer
just found the DCT gearbox perfect for the big V4  :152:
love the vfr just about perfect bike but want more of a touring machine as we do a fair bike of touring/ camping

Thanks for replying Ally. How do the motors compare, does the Crosstourer feel torquier? Does the VFR feel like it has 50hp more? Sorry for all the questions but when manufacturers claim to have re-tuned an engine to give it less grunt and more torque i'm interested to know how the changes make the engine feel.

hard to say both bikes pull really well i got my vfr fitted with power commander 5 and dyno tuned so it felt really strong from the off
the vfr did feel faster but it could be down to riding position, when i fitted helibars onto vfr it felt slower for some reason  :187:
but wasn't     :169:
when i went for test ride on crosstourer i just kept the speed down i wanted to see what the bike felt like just rolling on and out of corners.
