What Is It?

The Honda VFR800 is a popular premium sports tourer and is powered by a liquid cooled 781 cc V4 VTEC engine, producing 100 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
  • 43 mm fork with pre-load adjustment and 109 mm travel
  • Adjustable rear shock with 119 mm travel
  • Side mounted radiators (20 mm taller)
  • Engine/air temperature display
  • Colour coded pillion seat cover
  • 6 speed gearbox

Improvements over the 1998-2001 model include the addition of a VTEC system to the engine; one pair of valves per cylinder operates below 6,800 rpm for fuel efficiency and two pairs above for peak performance.

The styling also sees an update with a new front headlight design, the dual, mufflers now sit under the seat, the toque curve is more linear, the cam chain is a new quieter design, the screen is 10 mm higher, the swingarm 20 mm longer and the now Steel sub-frame has been beefed up to cope with the under seat exhaust and new hard luggage. The 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre up front and a 180/55 at the rear.

Options include hard panniers, 45 litre top box, tall screen and ABS (£700).

Colours: Red, blue, silver
