Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Special Build of the Year 2018 -

Honda VFR400R NC30

Once so cheap you couldn’t give them away in a box of corn­flakes, the NC30 – even strag­gly grey im­port ex­am­ples – are now build­ing up value. UK bikes are par­tic­u­larly prized. There’s still a huge gulf be­tween what sell­ers are ask­ing and buy­ers are pay­ing, mind, but it shows how the 30 is ad­mired against the 35. There’s no com­pelling rea­son to go for one or the other; a stock NC35 has far bet­ter sus­pen­sion and han­dling than a stan­dard NC30. But a VFR400 has a marginally live­lier mo­tor; ul­ti­mately it’s a per­sonal choice.
