Here is my Honda VFR Fi for sale.
This bike is a very trustworthy, reliable, extremely well built and fairly fast motorcycle and in my opinion a good modern looking one to for a machine built in 1999. This bike has been my first proper big bike after passing my full licence and it has been a great joy to ride. I originally used it for commuting but have recently taken advantage of its unique touring capabilities and have been on a glorious trip to Snowdonia and also along the south Dorset coast on it. There are many positive reviews about this bike and the 99 model in particular and I can honestly say it really lives up to those them.
Without getting to personal about the bike, as everyone of course will have their own opinion, it is an absolute pleasure to ride, it glides effortlessly along and is very controllable, I certainly felt at ease and safe on it quite quickly after adjusting from a 125 bike before the VFR. It is of course very quick and powerful with it's 781cc engine and certainly gives a great buzz of adrenaline when taking it out on the open road, you can really feel the acceleration and power of this machine as you move up through the gears. As this bike is a hybrid of a sport and a tourer designs it is ideal for long trips and also perfectly comfortable around town. I can't recommend this bike enough for an all-rounder machine.
I came to own this bike through a friend who bought it in a quite a worn condition. He proceeded to do an magnificent job of doing it up and restoring it back to its original condition, even re-spraying some of the fairings and both wheels so it not only runs smoothly with all the electrics in order but it looks in outstanding condition for thirteen year old bike. It has had four previous owners before and I have all the relative paper work and M.O.T History.
Maintenance and Repairs
As i said before the previous owner has stripped the bike and put it back to together spending good money on quality new parts, I have also replaced the front and rear sprockets and drive chain which cost £150.00 to buy. This was done at 44,500 miles. I have kept the bike clean and often thoroughly wash it down and clean in and around the chain. You will see if you come to view just how good in condition it is.

I have recently M.O.T’d it, which it sailed through. So you have a full years M.O.T until Nov next year.
The Tyres and brakes will need looking at within the next couple thousand miles but are fine at the moment. The bike is NOT taxed as I have put it in SAWN. Tax is about 100 quid for the year. 60 for six months
I am in no particular rush to sale and do realise that these bikes are in high demand so I do expect reasonable offers.
I have a few extras to go with the bike including an unopened Oxford battery charger and a Haynes Honda VFR manual which has absolutely everything you need to know on how to maintain the bike. I would be happy to discuss selling these items as well, along with a stylish dark Carberg Helmet, pad-lock and bike cover.
Thank you for reading and please get in contact to view the bike.
