From the resources, it is pretty much clear that we can expect this bike in India in the 2010 end or in early 2011.

The new Honda VFR1200F model has 1237cc 76-degree design which flaunts latest Honda innovations. The model is powered by Unicam valvetrain, developed on the CRF450R motocrosser, with a four-valve head and flatter, more efficient combustion chamber.

They are planning to get the bike to India and set a new trend for the bikers. The bike will be coming to India via CBU (attracting 110% duty) – which makes it clear that the big will be very high priced. “Honda’s Indian arm will be launching the model in a CBU format and will be pricier than its existing imported bikes like Fireblade, etc,” said company sources.

With all this, the bike will be costlier than Honda’s existing imported bikes like Fireblade, etc and will be priced around 20 Lakhs. Though it is too much but at last, this is Honda guys.
