Honda adds value to bike

NT News - Motoring - - NEWS -

THE tech­no­log­i­cally ad­vanced new Honda VFR 1200 has just be­come bet­ter value.

Honda Aus­tralia has added a top box and pan­nier sys­tem val­ued at $3185 with ev­ery new stan­dard and dual-clutch mod­els.

While deal­ers re­port sales as slow, Honda Aus­tralia mo­tor­cy­cles mar­ket­ing man­ager Glyn Grif­fiths de­fends the pro­mo­tion.

‘‘We have value added the VFR1200 man­ual and auto ver­sion to help en­cour­age cus­tomers to come and con­sider the VFR1200 if they are in the mar­ket for this style of mo­tor­cy­cle and price bracket,’’ he says.

‘‘We are nat­u­rally try­ing to have a com­pet­i­tive edge over our com­peti­tors with this pro­mo­tion and also not to harm the pric­ing on this model, both new and sec­ond­hand.’’

Honda’s VFR 1200 pro­mo­tion runs un­til the end of the year.

The VFR1200, with ABS stan­dard, is listed at $24,990 with an ex­tra $1000 for the du­al­clutch man­ual/auto trans­mis­sion model.
