The legendary VFR800F has sharp, contemporary looks, telescopic fork, Pro-arm swingarm, wheels and for 2017 a revised exhaust system and addition of a STD Power socket.
Other features include adjustable seat height, standard-fit Traction Control System, ABS, heated grips and Honda’s unique new self-cancelling indicators. 10kg lighter than the previous model, with the engine re-tuned for greater low and mid-range torque.
Two factors were key drivers for Honda’s engineers in updating the VFR800F – firstly, to retain and expand the essential VFR qualities that inspire so many, and, secondly, to update the new model with modern features and technologies.
