Bikes: Honda slashes pricing on ever popular VFR800

Honda has just announced a sizzling new price on the ever popular VFR800.

For just $13,990 (including GST, plus on-road costs), riders can now own one of the most refined and best balanced motorcycles of any displacement.

Setting it apart from every other motorcycle in its class, the VFR800’s unique fuel injected V4-VTEC engine delivers power in two optimised stages of valve actuation for a seamless band of accessible acceleration.

A lightweight twin-spar aluminium frame, single-sided Pro-Arm swingarm and HMAS cartridge type front fork all contribute to the VFR’s sporty and responsive handling.

Chassis and bodywork are also top-of-the-class in both design and execution. Its striking 4-beam headlight system is arrayed in an unmistakable ‘V’ pattern around a deeply angled windscreen, and its distinctive European looks combine sharp angles and edges with sweeping curves that terminate in a remarkable tail design.

For safety and peace of mind, the VFR offers a specially configured Linked Braking System to ensure smooth and effective stops whilst its U-section cast-aluminium wheels are kept light in order to reduce unsprung weight.

In true sport-tourer style, the VFR also offers a matching luggage option for those who want to explore the wide open road for days on end.

Pillions have also been looked after considerably. With the bold ‘Centre-Up’ exhaust system located under its thickly padded seat, room has been made for a more comfortable position for passengers.

Wider, comfortably shaped cast resin hand grips can also be easily attached or detached for the ultimate in riding comfort.
