“Honda VFR750 Gen 4 1994-97”

Written on: 07/02/2021 by Cheshirecat2 (1 review written)

Had this bike for over half its life and it's my everyday transport whether touring or local shopping. Occasionally I look at changing but haven't found any other bike that does what this does.

First must be that awesome Honda V4 engine with its gear is driven cams. it pulls easily from 3000 rpm upwards with good torque from 4500 right up to its redline at over 12,000rpm. 100kph is some 5000 rpm and there's ample torque on hand for normal use. On the open road, one can be in the upper range then hit tight hairpins with minimal gear changing, it pulls right out of them. Irs that all-around versatility that makes it and did I mention the sound of those gear-driven cams.

In the age of almost total electronic control whether traction, riding modes or fuel injection it's refreshing to actually ride a bike with basic get you there electronics, carbs and all.

lastly, the sheer reliability is astonishing. I picked my VFR up with 67,000k on the clock. It was virtually mint with a larger QEM rectifier fitted and full-service record. Now at over 208,000k, it's needed just the usual maintenance and consumables. The valves have never needed adjusting since its first check around 1995 and of course there's no cam chain to worry about.
