With the reconfiguration engine V4 is a feature specific to Honda, almost 40 years old. A unit is a complex, yet compact, has a unique power delivery and spirit all its own. RC213V Honda MotoGP machine currently using V4, as well as the flagship Sport-touring VFR1200F. This is a tightly woven into the Honda engines in the techniques of DNA.
V4 engine and was more at home than in the legendary VFR800F series motors are true all-round sports and always done a tour, and all areas in between, with or without a pillion. It has inspired great loyalty among owners over the past two decades and it is estimated there are still 75,000 VFRs are commonly used throughout Europe.
The VFR800F’s 782cc, liquid-cooled 16-valve DOHC 90° V4-VTEC engine has received significant development – mainly focusing on cam timing and valve duration/overlap – to deliver the required increase in low-to midrange power and torque. Peak power of 77.9kW is delivered at 10,250rpm, with peak torque of 75.1Nm arriving at 8,500rpm.
VTEC valve timing still operates one pair of inlet/exhaust valves per cylinder at low rpm, and then switches to four as revs rise but the transition is now seamless. Combined with the uprated torque, the effect is a remarkably linear power delivery and effortless overtaking at highway speeds.
Bore and stroke is 72mm x 48mm, with compression ratio of 11.8:1. The PGM-FI fuel injection – with 36mm throttle bodies – has been remapped to suit the engine’s new performance parameters, and fuel economy is 50.3mpg (WMTC). The single exhaust design saves 7kg weight.
Traction Control System
Honda’s Traction Control System (TCS) is fitted as standard. It’s operated from the left handlebar and a single mode covers a wide variety of riding conditions and situations.
The diamond triple-box section aluminium twin-spar frame is unchanged; a revised die-cast aluminium subframe is 3kg lighter than the previous model. In total, kerb weight is reduced by 10kg to 239kg. Rake is set at 25°30′ with trail of 95mm and 1,460mm wheelbase.
Completely new are the aluminium single-sided Pro-arm swingarm and 43mm Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) telescopic fork. They feature stepless spring preload adjustment and 108mm wheel travel; the HMAS gas-charged rear shock operates through a Pro-Link suspension linkage with remote spring preload and stepless rebound damping adjustment.
Wheels and Tire
The fork lowers have been redesigned in two pieces to accept radial-mount four-piston brake calipers. New Fine Die-Cast (FDC) hollow aluminium wheels employ dual 310mm floating discs up front and a 256mm disc at the rear. The front rim is a 17M/C x MT3.50, the rear a 17M/C x MT5.50 with 120/70 ZR17M/C (58W) and 180/55 ZR17M/C (73W) tyres. 2-channel ABS provides consistent and safe all-weather stopping control.
‘Elegant Sport’ is the essence of the VFR800F. Its stunning new bodywork provides a contemporary outline, with a mixture of sharp angles and soft curves it pays respect to design elements from the VFR’s history – details like the small air intake duct on the fairing’s flank.
The VFR-signature ‘X’ headlight shape is updated and now features LED lights – a first for Honda. Positional lights are integrated with the wing mirrors, just like the VFR1200F. At the rear, the wide, angular tailpiece offers plenty of room for a pillion and features an LED rear light unit with combined indicators for a clean look. With fuel economy of 50.3mpg (WMTC), the 21.5L fuel tank offers a 215 mile plus cruising range.
At 500mm the width around the middle cowl is reduced by 40mm giving the VFR800F a slim and compact feel. The seat is height adjustable (789mm or 809mm) using the tool provided and a handlebar height spacer, adding 15mm is available as a Honda Genuine Accessory.
– Pearl Glare White
– Darkness Black Metallic
– Victory Red
– Unique to Honda is the VFR800F’s self-cancelling indicator system. Rather than using a simple timer it compares front and rear wheel speed difference and calculates when to cancel the indication relative to the riding situation.
– A new dashboard houses a digital speedometer/tachometer plus gear position indicator, ambient temperature gauge, fuel consumption information and clock. There’s also an indicator for the 5-stage heated grips, which are fitted as standard. A compact automotive-style ‘wave’ design key – with internal grooving – reduces the chance of breakage.
– For the very first time Honda Genuine Accessories are offering a shift assist system. Designed to bolt on and plug straight in, it provides race-style split-second upshifts with no need to use the clutch.
– A new rear hugger protects the shock and Pro-Link suspension from water and the colour-matched 45L top box and panniers have been redesigned to accept the wave key. Other Honda Genuine Accessories for the VFR800F include:
– Colour-matched top boxes
– Pannier and top box inner bags
– Averto security kit
