Honda's release of its limited production, road-going, "works racer" VFR750R made headlines on the motorcycle scene in 1987. The VFR750R is a legal counterpart to the formidable RVF750 drag racer that showed remarkable potential in championships. worlds of resistance This bike follows the concept seen on the RVF750, including the use of space-age technology and components like titanium, carbon fiber, Kevlar, and magnesium. It improves on previous bikes by a wide margin. The VFR750R also uses a twin spark aluminum box frame, Pro-Arm (rear swing arm), and a center-lock hub rear wheel. These superlative features and the RVF's racing reputation have made it a collector's item even before the first unit rolled off the production line. The liquid-cooled, 748cc V4 valve engine has been kept compact to keep the VFR's overall dimensions very close to the current 500cc Grand Prix racers, for the minimal frontal area. In addition, this motorcycle departs from the typical practice of Japanese mass production by using a large amount of human labor in each unit, such as the FRP cowling and windshield that are attached by hand. The Honda VFR750R is a powerful package and has been designed to be very competitive on the race tracks in stock form, yet remain street legal.
