Honda ’03 VFR Ride Impressions

In 2002 updated its venerable all-rounder the VFR and it into its sixth generation; it was years between updates so it my attention.

While the previous VFR was a bit long in the tooth so expectations high so they updated the maybe out of boredom from winning British motorcycle sport tourer shootouts. So fixed a bike that truly broken and brought to the controversial (at least among fans) VTEC VFR.

A lot has written about the VTEC so lets skip a complete Honda redesigned the existing VFR added variably applied removed the distinctive sounding driven cams and created a new engine. Except it had torque and properties as the old one. If copying is a of flattery then this be a bit self-indulgent.

Ok the new engine is a bit of an improvement; it’s a bit and meets distantly upcoming emissions standards.

Unfortunately is also a catalytic converter the bike heavier, use more and effectively undoing all these technical feats. Enough it’s worth simply and moving on, and you can because despite the irony of having a power that is functionally identical to its it’s a really brilliant

The VTEC v-four is free torquee without an urge to the front wheel skyward at the application of throttle (yes I the longish wheelbase has a bit to do with too), with near four smoothness and has a great twin sound (even stock pipes). And the sound better when the VTEC in.

The VTEC wasn’t as intrusive as reviews I’ve read It’s not subtle but as the extra two per cylinder kicks in there is a up of power and the pipes just It’s an artificial power-band and it leaves you giggling and it’s the rest of the bike can’t

You’d have to be doing pretty catastrophic in a corner for the to upset the dynamic of the bikes Indeed the suspension on the Viffer solid, planted and surefooted on the this includes in the wet (first I test road the bike it was in cow rain). Actually the VFR’s felt a lot better than of the Blackbird, much more and yet just as flickable.

Take the corners counter only it’s happy, off it’s happy too, the is just user friendly.

has done something very fun thru the fine art of VTEC have given an otherwise stayed and conservative bike a disorder. Below 7000 RPM bike is a hardly vibrating then you give the free throttle a tug, and a the bike just a little bit of a hooligan. Not it’s a hooligan on Prozak, but it is to play.

It was entertaining enough I found playing with the VTEC the test ride, up to about 150 I called it good.

Speed on the is fun, it feels like moving. At 150 the VFR feels fast, at 150 the feels like well…

So is this the all-rounder of all-rounders? it has well integrated bag, ABS those who like it), breaking, cutting edge good weather protection (ok a wind screen would be comfortable ergos, stomping by sport touring standards and a bit of installed personality courtesy of the So why isn’t my credit card on the One reason… 1980’s Mustangs.

In the 80’s Ford redesigned the it was squared off, it was angular, it was it had design appeal that about a week. Honda have been thinking edgier, a redesign that to a sportier market” and it got a design after 2 years is feeling a like a 45 year old at a rave. almost instantly dated.

For a noted for an engine that last 200,000 km and more a with classic design would probably serve it as the years go by. Especially given propensity to leave the Viffer for 5 between updates. Other that this bike is a for me.
