Finally here, the new VFR, awaited a long time at least by the VFR family fans. Will this new Honda fulfill all the wishes they had for the new version of the VFR?
Designed as a sport-tourer for the very long ride, the motor has enough horsepower and torque for every rider. The VFR is motored by a 1237cc, 16-valve V-4 with lighter and more compact Unicam heads, a valvetrain that permits the cylinders to be turned inward to form a 76º angle; the result is a very compact engine. Single side swingarm, trapezoidal muffler (leaving enough place for travelbags), Combined ABS, normal or Dual Clutch Transmision and a special double fairing design are some of the characteristics of this bike.
The bikes shape looks smaller and lighter than it really is, the seat position and handlebar height relaxed and confortable.
The first tests against the direct rivals as ie. K1300S lets the Honda look very good but not better than the competitors, we are looking forward the long distance tests.
More on this bike ie. in the web of Honda.
