Honda VFR750 F – MY MOTORCYCLE
The Honda VFR 750 F sports-touring motorcycle appeared in 1986 and existed until 1997.
A feature of the motorcycle was a 4-cylinder V-shaped liquid-cooled engine, producing from 98 to 104 hp. (depending on the year of manufacture) power and 76.5 Nm of torque. The motor was based on the VF700 engine, which had a rather low reputation for being unreliable. Honda engineers did a great job to facilitate and improve this engine, the result was a motor that became not only more productive, but also had a huge resource of work. Instead of a timing chain, gears were used.
The Honda VFR 750 has won numerous awards and has been named the best sports bike in the 750cc class for 6 consecutive years. The bike’s reliability, endurance and performance were so outstanding at the time that the Honda VFR 750 was often used as a police bike – even a special version was developed for this – the Honda VFR750P.
The Honda VFR 750 motorcycle existed until 1997, after which it was successfully replaced by an updated injection model – the Honda VFR800F.
A brief history of the model
Over the entire production period, the Honda VFR 750 model has gone through several stages of development:
1986-1987 – 1st generation motorcycle (model index – Honda VFR750FG / H; frame – RC24). The models of these years differ in wheels of 16 and 18 inches, plastic design, and produce 104 hp. power.
1988-1989 – 2nd generation motorcycle (model index – Honda VFR750FJ / K; frame – RC24). These models have a slightly different type of plastic, 17-inch wheels and a dry weight of 203 kg (instead of 199 kg).
1990-1993 – 3rd generation motorcycle (model index – Honda VFR750FL / M / N / P; frame – RC36). Models of this generation received new plastic, frame, swingarm and wider tires. The engine power is 98 hp, and the fuel tank is 19 liters (instead of 20 liters).
