The best bike ever made Diamond review Review with images

AdvantagesSpeed, comfort, handling, reliability, economy, class

DisadvantagesNone

"How did Honda do it? Back in 1986 when the VFR750 was first introduced Honda was on the slippery slope to motorcycle oblivion. They had proved to one and all that they couldn't make a reliable V4 engine. The early eighties V4 engined models, the VF500 and VF750, both blew up if ridden hard, and wore cam chains out at an alarming rate regardless Honda's in line four cylinder bikes were failing in comparison to faster rivals from Suzuki, and more ..."

Very Fast Red used bike

AdvantagesFantastic engine, perfect build quality, lack of flashy graphics

DisadvantagesCome on, it's a VFR, there are none. Ok, brakes a bit lacking in feel

"The Honda VFR 750 has, in its later forms, been rated as the best all rounder of the two wheel world. How does a used example stack up against the seductive charms of newer flashier models.? I've had mine for 18 months now , it being a late model 750, made just before the fuel injected 800 was produced. It's the bike I got back into biking for, a combination of restrained styling and swiss watch like engineering. The heart of the bike, the wonderful ..." Read review

VFR FS my dream :D

Advantageslooks performance economy

Disadvantageselectrics

"...hearing of this VFR... the honda jewel. My lecturer always banged on about how when I got a shot of one id be hooked (tall words I thought). To cut a long story short, the chance to buy one at a very reasonable price came up, so i took it ( it was nealy two hundred miles away though). it had no service history and 20k miles, but the guy assured me it was mint! I did all my checks on it, and took it for a test drive (my lecturer was right, the bike ..." Read review

Commuter, tourer and track day tool

AdvantagesCan an all rounder do anymore than a VFR?

DisadvantagesQuite heavy

"1996 VFR 750 bought second hand a year back. Since then I've done just under 10,000 miles (now 30k on the speedo) which have included regular commuting, touring France, track day at Cadwell Park, advanced training around Wales (two up in the rain) and it has been great on every occassion. Being 166cm (5'5" I think) I find it just a little heavy especially with the top box packed. But generally no problems. I have dropped it 3 times all at stationary ..." Read review

VFR Class Speed

AdvantagesCost, speed, reliability, handling, understated

DisadvantagesCan't find any

"Acquired this aged and classy machine but a month ago. Its a VFR F of 1989 with braided hoses, 4 into one stainless can and scotoiler, with 39K. It's so well made it feels lots younger. Advantages, smooth power delivery, lovely hydraulic clutch, neutral safe handling and a beguilingly ordinairy image. Torquey engine piles on the power wherever its needed for effortless overtaking. It's rather quiet but with an appealing exhaust burble and the cam ..." Read review

Girl on a motorcycle

AdvantagesReliability and all round excellence

DisadvantagesRelatively expensive for a good second hand one

"Yes, I know girls on biggish bikes are fairly rare but I bought a VFR 3 years ago and it's one of the best buys I've ever made. I'm quite tall for a girl (5'10") so I don't find the height a problem. I mainly use it for commuting to work (30 mile round trip) and it's never let me down. I haven't done huge amounts of touring, just the odd day, but it's just so great to ride. It's a 1997 model, incidentally, the last year before they made the ..." Read review
