While it's based on the 35 kg heavier standard VFR750 there are a number of key differences which, along with the very low numbers around, keep the price sky high. Firstly it's a proper race bike which happens to be road legal and it dominated the Isle of Man TT race in the late 80s.
The engine features gear driven camshafts, Titanium conrods, 360° crank setup and close ratio gearbox with very tall first gear (up to around 80 mph). It also features a specially designed clutch, water pump, oil pump, cylinder head, valve train and pistons.
The 6-spoke 17" front wheel takes a 120/70 tyre and the 8-spoke 18" rear wheel a 170/60 tyre.Did You Know?
