“For many, bike journalists included, the Honda VFR750 is the best road bike ever built.” MCN didn’t mince words when it came to their praise of the VFR – it’s one thing for a journo to be excited about a bike for a few hours for a first ride, but this is the kind of machine that people love to live with.
Reliable, practical, and possessing the lovely whine of gear-driven cams, the VFR represents a great bang for the buck nowadays. 1997 was the last year of the RC36 generation (and the last year of the VFR750 in general). A revision in 1994 resulted in a larger (5.5) gallon gas tank, 12 pound weight loss, and a restyle that was supposed to evoke the legendary NR750.
This example has under 30,000 miles and the seller claims it’s in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. It’s never been down and comes with a tank protector, tank bag, Micron carbon fiber muffler, and two seats – one that lowers the seat height and a Corbin that raises it. Find this VFR for sale outside of Boulder, Colorado for $2,200 here on Craigslist.
