Honda made a remarkable motorbike even better in 1994 by giving it RC30 HONDA VFR750R aesthetics while keeping the iconic VFR characteristics of legendary dependability, steady performance, and unmatched comfort.

The dry weight of the RC30 HONDA VFR750R was reduced by 10 kg (22 lbs) thanks to the revised frame, swingarm, wheels, and exhaust, but it is still very much a sports-tourer rather than a sportster.

But because of that, as well as the comfortable seat and easy riding position, you arrive feeling thirsty for more.
The RC30 HONDA VFR750R exquisite V4 still impresses, despite having less power when it was first introduced than more modern vehicles.

This bike rewards riders of all skill levels with a forgiving ride and a silky smooth power delivery.
The VFR represents the pinnacle of Japanese superbikes. The suspension gets mushy after 20,000 miles, but other than a few bad alternators, the build quality is excellent. Do not be deterred by huge mileages; VFR heads over 75,000 with impunity.
