“So here is my other review, this time about the vfr750...”

Written on: 24/09/2014 by gsx750f (3 reviews written)

So here is my other review, this time about the vfr750 94-97. Mine was first registered in 94 which now makes it 20 years old. And I must mention that this thing really stands up well to the weather. There is nothing really that will rust up as it has aluminum frame and swingarm, the paint still look brilliant and no signs of fading or peeling. So let me mention on how I got own this bike. Well, I got it for nothing. That's right it was free, and.how did this happen? You may ask. I live in… Read Full Review

“Honda VFR750 FJ-K – The best road bike ever.”

Written on: 17/04/2013 by ashford383 (1 review written)

Quite a hard title to justify, but if you're interested in my take on that statement then please read on... I'm a 50 year old guy living in the UK, and I've owned a lot of motorcycles - all Japanese - since my 17th birthday. That day brought me a 1977 Honda CB125S which is immediately rattle-can'd and fitted with drop bars. I really did think it looked like Honda had done it, and with my face kissing the clocks I can now go as fast as a car! My schoolmate then loaned me his Suzi GT380 2-Stroke… Read Full Review

“Best bike ever”

Written on: 03/12/2012

Have had six vfrs including vtech 800and VFR 800 (1998) There is little to choose between the 750 and pre vetch 800 although the carbed 750 is definitely smoother at junctions and roundabouts, although a little slower in top end speed. The vetch fuelling I didn't like as it was very snatchy on my 06 model and I didn't keep it, although the handling and brakes etc were great. I understand that Honda fixed this after 06 although I havent ridden one.of this age All in all I would rate the vfr750… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/01/2011 by Desoz (5 reviews written)

Bought last year as my daily commuter, and it does a fine job. The engine is fantastic for the road. It has been totally reliable and needs nothing other than basic maintenance. Only 50,000 miles on the clock at the moment, so it has a lot of life left in it too!

I used it last year to do the RBLR Iron Butt ride - I did over 1500 miles in 36 hours. No problem.

The only things I would like to improve are the suspension and brakes. Things have moved on a long way in 23 years! But, for… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/11/2010

I have owned my bike for the last 9 years and we are still the best of friends. 1991 FM, Now with 48,000 on the clock, but as sweet as ever. My bikes in pearlecent white, very tidy and still looks great. The build quality of these bikes was brilliant. Stays with most modern tackle on our "real roads", and in comfort too. The collector boxes do rot, a stainless version is the answer. I borrowed a bike lift to do mine, I would have struggled without. The regulators can fail, a smelly… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/07/2010 by Big Neil (1 review written)

I've been a biker since 1973 including 10 years as a Motorcycle courier in London and this is the best bike I have ever ridden.
It handles beautifully when fitted with Michelin boots and with a top speed over 150 mph it's quite fast enough. Build quality is second to none. It always gets admiring looks. This really is an all round super bike! Look out for rusty down pipes as they are expensive to replace but most VFRs will by now have stainless pipes fitted… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/06/2010 by zppara1 (1 review written)

I have 2 VFR750's one 1990 and 1 1970 both are fantastic bikes the first I have had for 15yrs and it was written of 2 yrs ago with 235,138 miles on the clock, it never had a rebuild and serviced once a year just before the MOT. The 1997 bike had 10,000 miles on the clock when I got it now it has 57,000 in 2years again one service a year.

I dont look after the bikes but they look after me never let me down in any weather and I ride them in all weathers, I use the bike before I think of the car… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/06/2009

The Honda VFR750 is a magic Bike. 79000kms on the clock and still purring like a cat. Have owned a blackbird in the past and my 1990 VFR750 is all the bit as comfortable and well handling, with a touch less power but much more satisfying note to the exhaust. The gear driven cams and single elf swing arm are great. I can not honestly fault the bike it is an alround comfort, sexy sports machine… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/03/2009 by Fat Frank (2 reviews written)

The best motorcycle that I've ever owned. I've owned 23 and have currently got a 96 VFR 750 in red and a 2006 Norvil Norton Commando mk3 also in red.
The VFR is my 2nd one as I threw the other one down the road back in 1996 turning my foot round till it pointed to 6 o'clock. Ouch!
Ive toured France,Belgium, Holland and the UK on it 2 up and it was comfortable and handled well with Givi Panniers packed to the gunnels.
Love the Norton as its got loads of character… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/02/2009 by skote (22 reviews written)

I picked up a very tidy Honda 1995 VFR750 recently with 20K on the clock and FSH recently. It cost me a paltry £1200 (well it is a nasty emerald green!) and I have to say it's probably the best bike for all-round use I have ever owned. I've tried everything from Hayabusas to Hornets to BMW F800s and this bike is the closest do-it-all bike I have ever ridden. OK, so I haven't tried a VFR800, but I expect it is more of the same, but without the natty Testarossa louvres in the fairing!

It's not… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/02/2009 by rocketrodney (1 review written)

The Honda VFR750 748 is a great all round bike. It sounds like a mini V8.
You can pick a good mid 90's model up from $4000 to $5000.
But be prepared to wait a couple of months and then pounce on it when it comes up for sale. You won 't be disappointed! If you are over 30 and are tired of having you bum above your head then grab a VFR.
Have cash ready. These babies are loved so much they rarely come up for sale. I just picked up a 1995 model, red with only 40000 on it. SWEET!
Good luck.

Written on: 06/02/2008 by GrantS (1 review written)

I recently bought a Honda VFR 1989 'Pearl White' 750 with only 17500 miles on the clock. I couldn't resist it at the price and the great condition it was in. Boy am I happy with my buy. Biking is quite big in South Africa and the GSXR and Blade pros are all appreciative of the bike and its heritage. I'm still quite an amateur but thouroughly enjoy the power and handling. I get a bit of bounce when gearing down at high speeds approaching a corner and my arms and hands are tired after a few laps… Read Full Review

It has got to one of the best bikes ever made!

The power is great. The comfort is spot on, and the speed keeps with the best of them. Fuel consumption is just great for a bike of this age, and I am still getting 48mpg, and that's on a bike with 48,000 on the clock. It burns no oil, and it runs clean and smooth… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/09/2006 by astrokan (2 reviews written)

My first Honda VFR750 748 was the 1986 FG model and what a machine it was, had been stood around for much of its 20 year history but fired into life on the touch of the electric start, only needing the front fork seal and rear mono shock replacing. The engine was bullet proof and provided a decent amount of power. The bike was a bit heavy but was forgiven when on an open road, the engine roared as you hit the magic 100 bhp at 10,000 rpms! It took corners like a proper sports bike and cruised… Read Full Review

I found this review helpful because...

<br/>Bought a VFR750FG with 25k kms two weeks ago (Japanese Import). Find it reasuring that I made the right choice. I had considered a CX650 as I was looking for a commuter/touring machine. Cant fault the bike as yet except for manovers while parking, ouch have learnt to move hands out of way of tank (-:

I ride a 1986 Honda VFR750 and would recommend it to anyone, being 20 years old it is relatively cheap to insure (depending on your age and licence duration). Especially compared to new bikes in the same class.
It handles beautifully and delivers its power very smoothly all the way up to over 150 mph… Read Full Review

Easyjet's Response to highlandermcleod's Review

Written on: 21/02/2006

I also have a VFR 750 from 1986 and I love it !
Its coming up to 93,000 miles now and the motor has never been opened. I live in the French Alps and don't use a car in the summer time -- only the VFR. The 16 in front wheel really helps in the tight hairpins around here although it is getting harder to find good rubber to fit. Metzeler have stopped making the O.E tyre for it. I have had to replace the regulator, radiator fan motor, and the electonic black box gave up (my fault - I replaced the passenger handle and used too long bolts.....) All in all an extraordinary 'bike .
