Crossrunner / Overview

Exceptional stability and impressive performance, all year round

Take the flexibility and exciting attitude of a Naked performance machine, and give it the upright riding position and rugged appearance of an adventure bike; what you’re left with is something special. The Crossrunner.

Along with a unique, stylish image, the Crossrunner’s 800cc V4 motor provides a thrilling riding experience, in all conditions, throughout the year – in and around town or on long rides out across country.

A motorcycle that reflects the riding conditions of this new decade

The Crossrunner – a motorcycle that delivers a uniquely adaptable experience to suit different riding moods. We gave it a wide-barred, upright riding position to offer an experience that magnifies the impressions of speed, acceleration and lean angle. All the while feeling in complete control.

It was the 120 sessions in the wind tunnel that helped us build a motorcycle with such unwavering stability. In fact the airflow technology in the Crossrunner even adds to its trend-setting appearance – which is helped by aesthetically pleasing low slung 4-2-1 exhaust system.

Designed to maximise pillion comfort and create a feeling of unison between rider and passenger, the Crossrunner also addresses the aspect of another strong consideration at initial stage. The engine.

With most sport tourer machines using an in-line four cylinder engine and most adventure motorcycles using a twin cylinder powerplant, the design team had an exciting opportunity. A smooth, flexible and soulful 800cc V4 engine, specifically tuned for a machine that helps a rider find a flowing rhythm.

With the attributes of both a Naked performance machine and an adventure bike, the Crossrunner is a new kind of motorcycle. One that can effortlessly adapt to many different styles of riding.
