See, there are guys who have a whole stable of bikes to ride every day the guys who work for magazines like Cycle World and Motorcyclist. And guess what they pick as the Best 750 Sportbike and Best 750 GT?
The reason for the VFR's universal appeal is instantly apparent. Its V-four engine is unique in the sport-bike world. Gear-driven cams and four valves per cylinder give it high-rpm punch, and its broad power band makes hustling through turns a point and shoot experience.
Best of all, the VFR fits a wide range of riders, so you can run through its 5.5-gallon tank without feeling like an origami figure.
