Product Release

Honda VFR800F

Posted:

Returning to the evocative look and feel of VFRs of the past, the 2014 Honda VFR800F will capture the hearts of riders with its sharp contemporary looks, overhauled suspension and new technology.

This true all-round motorcycle shares an engine configuration with the RC213V MotoGP machine and the legendary VFR1200F, but has built its own loyal following in riders who appreciate the VFR800F's unique power delivery and adaptable capabilities.

Honda's V4 engine has always been at home encased in the VFR800F's bodywork and for 2014, the 782cc V4-VTEC engine's bottom and mid-range power has been boosted to strike the ideal balance of enjoyable sports riding and easy commuting. The VTEC transition has been softened resulting in smooth, strong and linear power delivery and Honda's Traction Control System (TCS) has been added.

The Pro-Arm single-sided swingarm and the 43mm Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) telescopic fork are completely new and feature stepless spring preload adjustment. The HMAS gas-charged rear shock operates through a Pro-Link suspension linkage with remote spring preload and stepless rebound damping adjustment.

Radial-mount, four-piston front brake callipers are complemented by standard fit ABS ensuring consistent and safe all-weather stopping control. Redesigned wheels enhance the quintessentially VFR twin-spar aluminium beam frame.

Extensive work has gone into making the new VFR800F lighter than its predecessor. Among a host of detail changes, a single exhaust muffler has replaced the dual underseat design of the previous model allowing the 2014 model's kerb weight to be reduced by 10kg.

Echoing the classic VFR design, the styling of the new VFR800F is considerably slimmer in the middle giving the machine a sleek silhouette with crisp, contemporary angles. The VFR-signature headlight shape is updated and now features LED lights, a first for Honda. At the rear, the wide, angular tailpiece offers plenty of room for a pillion and features an LED rear light unit with combined indicators for a clean look.

With Honda's race DNA pumping through its engine, the 2014 VFR800F is in essence an elegant sports touring machine. Reminiscent of VFRs of the past, the new VFR800F will arrive in the second quarter of 2014* in two inspiring colours; Darkness Black Metallic and Victory Red.

See your Honda Dealer for more information, details regarding price will follow in the coming months.
