Honda Explains the Crossrunner

11/08/2010 @ 10:46 am, by Jensen Beeler2 COMMENTS

The 2011 Honda Crossrunner 800 was finally debuted at EICMA this year, after teasing us with several sketches of the concept. Designed to be a crossover motorcycle, the Crossrunner 800 sits somewhere between a sport-tourer and an adventure-tourer in our eyes. Sitting high up with its elongated suspension and upright sitting position, the Crossrunner has some component protection, but clearly invisions a sporty priority with its single-sided swingarm and aggressive minimalist fairing.

Of course that’s just our take on the motorcycle, so check out the video above for Honda’s opinion on its own creation (did you know one of the design inspirations was the personal water craft?), and extrapolate your own conclusions. For bonus fun, there is a very well done promotional video awaiting you after the jump.

    I’d like to to know what percent of it shares part with the 6th gen VFR. It looks like a huge amount.

    Simplicity is one of the best signs of good design. This is a terrible design & overly done in every way.
