VFR800F / Overview

Two factors were key drivers for Honda’s engineers in development of the new 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.

Starting with the 782cc V4-VTEC engine, bottom and mid-range power have been boosted, to strike the ideal balance of enjoyable sports riding and easy commuting. The VTEC transition has been softened and the resulting power delivery is smooth, strong and linear. Honda’s TCS (Traction Control System) has also been added.

Extensive work has gone into making the new VFR800F lighter than its predecessor, a whole 13Kg lighter in fact.  A single exhaust muffler has replaced the dual underseat design of the previous model and a host of detail changes save weight.

A brand new Pro-Arm single-sided swingarm, 43mm telescopic fork, radial-mount three-piston front brake calipers and redesigned wheels hang from the quintessentially VFR twin-spar aluminium beam frame. Seat height is adjustable by 20mm, ABS is fitted as standard and – for the first time – a Honda Genuine Accessories quickshifter is available to bolt straight on.

And then there’s the styling. Considerably slimmer in the middle than the outgoing bike the 2014 VFR800F mixes a sleek silhouette with crisp, contemporary angles – and more than an echo of classic VFR design.
