1998 VFR800Fi in Red
I'm now 50 and have owned numerous bikes over the years. Ive always bought from new and they've always been naked bikes. I bought my 1998 red VFR 800 2 months ago and its left me wondering why I never before considered either an older or a faired machine.
I simply cannot fault it mechanically or ergonomically and its astonishing value for money. Superb engine, slick gearbox, good brakes and solid build quality. Even as a 15 year old bike it looks fresh and eye catching, sounds great ( fuel can ) and rides very well on plush but firm suspension.
If your looking for a fun, practical and reliable machine, I'd recommend this, the 5th gen VFR as an excellent choice.
