I'm looking forward to the KTM390. It'll partner with my FZ-09.
Generally speaking, Honda does fetch a premium over the other Japanese brands. Their reputation for quality and attention to detail makes them feel as though they can charge a fair bit more, and whether or not that's true depends on your opinion on the matter. If you're talking dollars per horsepower, yes, the VFR has always been underpowered since the 90s. But the bike has an appeal as a "do-it-all" sportbike that few others can match, and having less power CAN be a good thing. Also, the design of the V-4 engine has its own benefits.i really like the looks of the VFR but reviews i've read keep calling the bike underpowered given the price? - for what they go for new - i'd likely pick a kawi ninja 1000 but maybe used in a few years - i'd consider something like that too.
I'm hoping to build up a stable, but based off my history it's not looking to promising Lol.I've seen them used from $12-14k on Cycle Trader.
