The official unveiling of the new vfr1200 happens tonight at 1 am (ok Thursday morning). You can see the new bike at
Us VFR fanatics have been waiting for this moment since 2005. Honda made effectively zero changes to the bike since the vtec came out in 2002, until now. We are extremely excited. The new bike gives me the impression that it will be similar to the FJR1300. We hope it is smaller and more agile though.
It is funny to me that many of the vfr fans have been hoping upon hope that honda would come out with a faster vfr, which is funny to me that a pretty agile touring bike with ~105hp would be thought of as underpowered. It is also funny to me since approx 100% of the street riders would never be able to max out the handling and sporting characteristics of such a "slow" bike. But to be fair the current vfr's are dated in the motorcycle world currently carrying an 8 year old model with no significant changes.
Anyways, for us VFR fans, today is a big day. And as soon as I pay off my truck, I think it will be very soon that I own one of these new bikes.
