Nice almost everything! Except the price tag, the 800 vs 1000 cc's, and the 'skinny' 180 rear tire

I see they've dropped the exhaust from the undertail.
I rode my 2002 VFR800 for a couple years, and it was ok. I loved the v-tec!
But this bike isn't doing anything at all for me. It's bland and boring imo.

- LED headlights
- Self-canceling turn indicators that employ wheel-speed data, not a timer
- digital tach / analog speedo
- gear indicator
- fuel-consumption gauge
- 5.2-gallon fuel tank; range in excess of 200 miles
- six-speed gearbox

529 pounds ... Ouch.

My bud just got a new '14 FZ-09, which lists for $7,990. I know these two bikes are pretty different, but this new VFR with its $13,499 (Deluxe model) list sure doesn't seem like $5,500 more motorcycle

lol gotta agree with you JD, my 06 ZX14 with heli bars was a good tourer as well as a sports bike with much sexier curves. No string down below here either.

I don't know who is designing Honda's bike lately, but they are just ugly IMO. Honda hasn't had an inspired design in I don't know say 14 years......
