Honda VFR 800 V-TEC RC 46 II 2005

Perfectly embodying the ideal compromise of the sport-GT category, the VFR has enjoyed a glorious success since its appearance in 1986. In addition to its remarkable design, its reputation has also been built on its indestructible engine. A V4 from the RC 45 sports car (on the 800 FI), with distribution by cascade of pinions.

A reinforced concrete block, capable of exceeding 100,000 kms while laughing. And then, Triumph released a certain Triumph Sprint ST, a machine that managed to trip the VFR. So Honda rolled up its sleeves.

For the new generation, the casing has been completely revised. From the angle, the style, more sportiness, more fun, the bike has gained in sex appeal. Do these angular shapes remind you of anything? Look to Italy. The pencil stroke has some similarities with the design of the Aprilia Futura. But the Japanese one is more successful. The architecture of the engine is reflected in the shapes of the bike, with very pronounced Vs. Moreover, on the motor side, the engineers opted for a technological transplant. The engine inherits from V-TEC. The what ? A valve lift control system. To simplify, below a certain speed (6800 rpm), only 2 valves per cylinder operate. This is supposed to improve torque and reduce fuel consumption. Beyond that, the 4 valves come into action, allowing the VFR to regain the full health of a multi-valve. Awesome, right!?! What about the reality ?
Before even judging the temperament of the mill, the first kilometers reveal something strange. Sitting differently? No – the driving position is the same as in 1998. Good point, because it is very consistent in this category. The dashboard ? It gains a 2nd digital window where speed, exterior temperature, ABS warning light are displayed … but no, that’s something else. The noise ! The whistle of the cast has disappeared; because now, it is a chain which replaces the cascade of pinions. However, the VFR is not without vocalizations.
The revs are made in a soft sound up to 7000 revs. Then, the V-tec is triggered and transforms the ritornello into a sports melody. Tripant! The ear is flattered but the sensations diluted. The transition from 2 to 4 valves is smooth. No effect on flexibility either. Most of the change can be seen in performance: the new VFR does better in acceleration and pick-up than the old one. But is this only due to V-tec? Because the transmission has also changed. The last 4 gears have been significantly lengthened and the gearbox output pinion loses a tooth. Reassure the fans: the bike retains this ease and this typical efficiency that allowed it to build its reputation.
Easy, rigid, comfortable while being rigorous, the machine drives with ease. A real treat. Cool driving or sport, nothing scares him, everything is allowed.

Overall, the VFR remains a VFR. By closing your eyes, you would hardly see a difference in driving. So much the better, its design makes it one of the best machines today. She gained sex appeal, a melody in 2 octaves and a more efficient braking.
