Engine [ ]

The VFR750F models all used 16-valve gear driven liquid-cooled 90° V4 engines with -based air/fuel induction; the remained the same for all 750 models at (2.756×1.913inches). The engine was made of aluminium alloy with the being divided horizontally, and VFR750K models use slightly crankcases with the lower being modified to allow for the position indicator in place of the switch.

On all the VFR750 models the drive for the cams was between the Lubrication was via a wet sump with a dual-rotor oil pump; an oil (air) was also fitted. Transmission was a with a constant-mesh, wet multi-plate and chain drive to the rear with the exception of the 5-speed which featured a spacer in of one of the gears.

The VFR750F uses a 180 degree instead of the 360 degree crank in the VF and VFR750R.
