Glimmers Of Gold For Legendary Honda VFR

13 May 2009 - Honda has released the long standing VFR800 in two new colour schemes, Candy Glory Red and Sword Silver Metallic, both of which now feature gold wheels mounted on to one of the most refined sport touring packages available today.

The VFR is powered by a screaming fuel-injected engine with a unique VTEC system that effectively combines the strong low-end torque of 2-valve engines with the top end revving power of high-performance 4-valve mills.

With a lightweight, rigid twin-spar aluminium frame, single-sided Pro-Arm swingarm and HMAS cartridge type front fork, the VFR’s sporty and responsive handling makes long distance riding an absolute pleasure.

Rear suspension is smoothly compliant, with a single-sided cast aluminium Pro-Arm swingarm mounted directly to the rear of the engine cases, and supported by a progressive Pro-Link rear suspension system.

The Dual Combined Brake System enhances braking ease and control for smooth, unruffled stopping performance.

The VFR is built for touring, made easy by the low, contoured seat with easy reach to the ground and long-term comfort for rider and passenger.

With a 22-litre tank capacity, optional luggage system and powerful multi-reflector headlights the VFR continues to hit the mark after an amazing 23 years of continuous production.

Recommended retail for the 2009 VFR800 is $15,990 including GST (excluding stamp duty, registration and Dealer delivery).
