2010 Honda VFR1200
« on: January 28, 2012, 07:16:10 pm »
Anybody owns one?  Tell me good and bad about the bike.  I was thinking about buying one, as they can be had for mid 10k's brand new right now.

The performance numbers should be close to that of C14.  I like the shaft drive on the bike.

Nobody wants one cause other than the engine.......they suck!!!!!!! Small gas tank, no luggage, few accessories......etc: HONDA screwed up bigtime on that bike. It isn't like the VFR, and it isnt like the ST....it is a sucky in the middle bike that has been a total flop for big red. But by all means go and buy one. ;)

I agree it sucked for the MSRP price of $ 17k+, but when they start selling them new for under $ 10k, then they start looking awfully good for the money.   :)
