Those VFRs are NICE bikes. Extremely comfortable, reliable, and I love the single-sided swingarm look. Gear drive rather than belt, with all kinds of nice extras. But the 600 will be cheaper, and easier to ride in my opinion.
gear driven cams...rather than HVO CHAIN driven cams . Is what he prolly meant to say . The VFR or Intercepter was born outa the days when Honduh had real bad press with the cam-chains that were installed on some of their rides . The V65/V45 magna's the Sabre etc etc , experienced cam chain probs,and cam shaft probs etc . The Sabre had SHAFT final drive. None of these had BELT final drive. Honduh's answer was to start buildin gear driven cam bikes . The Magna and the Sabre came out in 1982 I think...then a year or so later they pooped out the VF 750 or the Intercepter . Now its the VFR .
Its still TURD-ON-WHEELS , if you ask me...but then again,no one was askin. That single sided swingarm bullshid,thats for posers...and BMW riders . YUK.
It was like '86 , when Honduh trotted out the VFR7-somthing... it was a 700 , if mem serves , cause of all that International Trade bullshid . Whats it now...a 750 or an' 800? O well....turd on toast....eat up.
hav a good 1.....RSD.
