The Crosstourer's styling suggests great strength allied with a refined sportiness. Recurring design themes like sharp edges accentuate its rugged adventure style; a lack of bulk at the front of the bike gives a feeling of lightness.
The headlight configuration consists of a stacked headlight arrangement, with the main beam headlight positioned above the high beam unit. The headlights and effective windscreen are positioned towards the middle of the machine to help centralise mass while also offering great wind protection. Channels in the fairing at the front of the bike reduce frontal area, while ducting cooling air into the radiators.
The rear of the machine is highly functional with an integrated luggage carrier and grab rail, to which the optional panniers attach directly. The LED indicators, used for the first time on a large capacity Honda motorcycle, ensure optimum visibility.
