Honda came out with the VFR1200 in 2009 with the DCT option. I love V-4's. Some say its a compromise between an I-4's screaming top end power and a twin's torque. I'd tend to agree, but I don't consider that a compromise...just the best of both worlds. :smileFun bikes, all of them!
I know of a guy who buys wrecked VFRs and puts the motors on snowmobiles! He deletes the belt drive on the sleds and machines his own shaft drives for them. His most recent transplants are done with big motors (1200s or bigger maybe? can't remember) & DCT autoshifts. They are wicked fast, even with the long mountain tracks he puts on them. I can only wonder what those would be like on a bike!
Welcome to the forums!
I can't imagine a 1200 powered snowmobile! But I guess some sled drivers couldn't imagine running one on the road with distracted drivers and oblivious deer. :eek
