    How many.

    A few weeks ago I read somewhere on the forum that there were approx' 300 odd Xtourers registered in the UK, (can't remember if this was DCT only or manual as well),  at the time this seemed very low to me, meanwhile talking to the UK importers of Leo Vince exhausts I was told they sell 3 to 6 A WEEK for these bikes and I've just had a look on Autotrader and there's currently nearly 40 DCTs for sale, this does include a few unregistered bikes, SO, how many are there really, any guess' chaps, PS I'm writing this cos' I'm a bit bored looking at the snow hammering down in Mid Wales.  :190:

    I only have one at a time. 
    Though only having had one would explain why you think white ones are fastest :038:

    Hey that's brill' Capobob, thanks mate, since it was first introduced in 2012, there have been 6905 Xtourers registered new in the UK, 495 being the highest number in any one quarter in the 2nd quarter of 2015, so where are they all hiding ?  :027:

    That number seems too high - are you interpreting the figures incorrectly?   :006:

    The website refers to 'taxed' vehicles on an annual basis so searching 'Honda VRF1200 X' shows that last year, 1060 vehicles have been 'taxed'.  There are a number of model variants recorded such as 'Honda VFR1200 X-C' and 'Honda VFR 1200 X-F' so I added the 'taxed' total across all models - 1060 seems more likely to be a correct figure than nigh-on 7000.
