2010 - Honda VFR series V4 Sports Tourer

The new Sports Tourer from Honda with variable-cylinder engine, which enables the rear bank of cylinders to shut down completely, leaving the bike effectively a parallel twin on light loads, which should dramatically boost fuel economy and emissions performance. This trend with Honda seems to continue from Cars to motorcycles these days. First time we came across variable-cylinder engine was with Honda Accord V6, now its Honda V4 Sports Tourer.
