Richard Palmer

“The brakes are good but the sus­pen­sion’s a bit too hard for a VFR and it takes the fun out of country roads. It’s a bit gl­itchy around 6500rpm too, which is the VTEC. And the new VFR isn’t any more pow­er­ful. All in all, it’s a bit bland, re­ally.”

Dave Bai­less

“It’s my first ex­pe­ri­ence of the VTEC and when it comes in it’s like, what the heck is that? It’s a lovely ride, it sounds and feels like a V4 – but it’s a dif­fer­ent seat­ing po­si­tion; higher up and sportier. I can’t see it be­ing very com­fort­able on a long run.”

Mal­colm San­di­son

“Love it. Re­ally love it. It’s every­thing I thought it would be and I’d buy one; in fact I prob­a­bly will. I won’t be sell­ing mine, be­fore you ask, but I’ll sell my boat and get the new one. The brakes in par­tic­u­lar are just as­ton­ish­ing!”

Tony Nu­coll

“The new VFR is ab­so­lutely ex­cel­lent, but it’s not a big step up from mine. The big­gest dif­fer­ence is you sit on it more than in it. It’s still comfy and would do the job, but it feels a bit more sporty.”

Jon Ri­ley

“It’s lighter, but other than that it’s much the same. A bit more power, a bit more nim­ble in the cor­ners, brakes are a bit bet­ter. But there’s not so much in it. It’s ba­si­cally the same as my bike, with a sportier rid­ing po­si­tion.”
