HONDA VFR800 VTEC
Universally considered one of Honda's most illustrious race-bred sport bikes, the VFR is also arguably one of the best all-around street bikes ever built. Featuring a fuel-injected, VTEC-equipped V-4 motor, aluminium chassis, comfortable, all-day ergonomics and confidence-enspirering handling. This is a machine, though born of the race track, whose razor-sharp performance is equally at home on any paved surface. But, despite its unimpeachable credentials and racing pedigree, directly derived from the RC30 and RC45 World Superbike racers, Honda has always presented its high-tech V4 street bikes as all-rounders, sport bikes, tourers and commuters all rolled into one sophisticated, incredibly complex, technological motorcycle.
