2005 Honda VFR

Honda VFR

For nearly 20 years, Honda's world-renowned VFR has consistently been hailed as one of the finest all-round motorcycles-of any displacement-on the roads of Europe. A machine so remarkably well tuned that it feels just as comfortable and confident flying up and down mountain passes as it does cruising the motorways between your various destinations.

The VFR's unique fuel-injected V4 engine produces a seamless band of strong, accessible power. Its ingenious VTEC 2-stage valve actuation system delivers both the low-end torque of a 2-valve engine and the searing power of the highest-performance 4- valve mills, for exhilarating performance in all riding situations. Styled for a new age of riding and touring enjoyment, the VFR's fine-tuned aluminium chassis provides flawless handling for the ultimate in responsive and confident control. This control also extends to the VFR's specially configured Dual Combined Brake System, which ensures effortlessly smooth and effective stops. Designed to be fitted with matching optional luggage, the VFR also sets the highest standards of performance and pleasure as a highly capable tourer whenever one's riding enjoyment extends far over the horizon.

In its deluxe ABS version, the VFR's exhilarating blend of sport bike power and handling are further elevated by the sublime braking performance of Honda's most advanced Antilock Brake System, for confident braking control over virtually any road and riding conditions, and the most satisfying balance of performance and comfort to be found in motorcycling.
