Honda’s epic tour gets underway

Honda’s Epic Tour is underway, with seven lucky participants and their choice of pillion passenger en-route to explore some of the best motorcycling routes across Europe, aboard Honda’s new V4 Crosstourer.

The Epic Tour pan-European competition began at the end of 2011 with seven winners drawn recently from a selection of countries. Yesterday evening (13 June) the lucky competition winners gathered from all over Europe at a hotel close to Honda Motor Europe headquarters. Bags were packed, bikes were polished and panniers were filled in expectation for the trip of a lifetime!

The riders departed the UK this morning (14 June) on an eight-day expedition across Europe, incorporating some of the ‘must do’ riding routes on the continent. From the high-speed autobahns of Germany, to the stunning coastal roads of Italy and the beautiful mountain passes in the French Alps, all culminating with a ride into Rome on 22 June.

All riders were provided with Honda’s Crosstourer; combining sublime power delivery, superb manoeuvrability and above all versatile capability, the Crosstourer is the perfect touring companion and adventure maker.
