What Is It?

The Honda VFR800 is a really popular premium sports tourer and is powered by a liquid cooled 781 cc V4 engine, producing 110 bhp at 9,000 rpm and maximum torque at 6,750 rpm.

Features include:

  • Aluminium frame with single sided swingarm
  • Dual 296 mm discs up front with Nissin three piston calipers
  • 256 mm disc at the rear with Nissin three piston caliper
  • Linked braking system
  • 41 mm fork with adjustable pre-load and 119 mm travel
  • Adjustable rear shock with 119 mm travel
  • Colour coded pillion seat cover
  • Engine/air temperature display
  • 6 speed gearbox

It isn't a VTEC engine like the later VFR800 models but does gain funky side mounted radiators and fuel injection over the VFR750. The 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre up front and a 180/55 at the rear.

Colours: Black, red, blue, yellow and 1999 Anniversary Edition in red/silver

Did You Know?

The V4 engine was derived from the RC45 race bike.
