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.
PGM-FI fuel injection employs 44mm throttle bores and fly- by-wire technology for precise throttle control. Peak power of 95kW arrives at 7,750rpm, with peak torque of 126Nm at 6,500rpm.
