My brother just bought one of those a couple of weeks ago.
Last weekend he insisted I ride it. Well, what was I supposed to do, he is my brother. :D

He rode my FJR. He had ridden it before but had forgotten what it was like. He had many great things to say about the FJR. 'Course we already knew all that. :yahoo:

Nice! Most of the dealers have them discounted pretty good too. I test rode one at a Honda Demo day last fall. I was impressed!

I love your 2010 VFR. Great power, terrific handling and an absolute blast to ride. Yes, in case you have not guessed already, I also have a 2010 VFR1200F along with my 2006 FJR. I must admit, the riding position was a bit tiresome at first, but now that my body has had time to adjust it almost feels wierd when I get on the FJR after riding the VFR. I bought mine
in October, 2011 and got $5000 off suggested retail. I just hope I don't end up underneath the jail because the power is so
addicting I just want to twist the neck off the throttle everytime I ride. ENJOY!!

Congrats... nice looking and well designed bike.

Here are some intesting Specs:

"Rated at 170 hp at 10,000 rpm, with a hefty 95 lb-ft of torque at 8750 rpm, the VFR’s 1237-cc V4 engine has an unusual cylinder layout. To keep the area where tank and seat meet as narrow as possible, Honda put the two cylinders from the center of the crankshaft at the rear of the vee, with the two outer cylinders located at the front.

...Honda’s Unicam valvetrain, which employs one camshaft per bank, acting directly via bucket tappets on the inlet valves while controlling roller rockers that actuate the exhaust valves. Unicam thus requires valve-lash adjustment by shims at the inlet side and by screw adjusters at the exhaust side."

Thanks guys, I'll try to stay out of trouble. My SO reminds me every time I leave for a ride. :angry2: I can get in just as much trouble (ticket wise) with my little 650cc Versys, really :huh: ... I can prove it. :lol:

Nice ride, congrats.
Sat on one in the dealership 2 weeks ago, didn't note the price, but it did
have a discount sticker on it.
I guess it's an In-betweener or hybrid....touring-crotch rocket.

Enjoy and always be safe.

Nice looking scoot, Petey! I was over at a local Honda dealer a couple of weeks ago and they had one in the showroom. "Interesting" looking.

So, what're ya bringing to NERDS? The VFR or the Versys???

And when's the VFR going to Alaska? I haven't seen any pictures or anything so I think you've never been there. :assassin:

Very nice Petey.

I rode one when they first hit the dealership. I remember two things about the ride, the seat was lower [could flat foot the bike] and that the motor was a beast [very quick and very smooth].

Congrats!

I hate it when the voices in my head go silent ... I never know what those bastards are planning ...

Nice bike, Petey. Hope to see that one at NERDS in August!

PS - now I see why you asked about V4 engine smoothness in that other thread. ;)
