    I really like the VFR which has basically the same engine as my Crossrunner. Is that a standard colour or a paint job? whichever it is really smart

    That was one of the two colors available in the US for 07. It is the 25th anniversary color scheme. Believe it or not these didn't sell well and I picked it up in 09 new in the crate for under 8k

    Is the crossrunner the v-tech engine (runs on 2 valves per cylinder up to 6400 rpm then switches to 4 valves per cylinder?). The crossrunner isn't available here in the states so I don't know much about it other than in looks sweet and has a great powerplant. I've never really cared for I-4 engines. Owned several and have never 'connected' with one. To me they just don't have any soul. Probably one reason I dig the nc with it's parallel twin

    What a coincidence.

    I have HAD the Ninja250 and also the ACE1100.
    I am a 1-bike hero (for now). 4 months now with my NCX, I only clocked 3000km, so...

    Today I just bought my wife a new helmet and new jacket.
    I am betting if she likes coming along for my weekend day trips or evening rides, I may be looking at a 1200cc soon (2nd bike).

    Goldwing (which I refer to as Big Bird, it's bright yellow)
    Piaggio MP3 500 (which I call the Tricycle, it has 2 wheels in the front)
    I'd post pic's, but I'm on a iPad and it doesn't let me.

    You would never know that up until June 2011 I had't ridden a motorcycle since I was 14 years old (53 now) and then only trails never on the street. Now i log about 500 miles a week with my 86 mile round trip commute and weekend riding.
    I guess you could say I'm hooked .

    Nice! I have actually decided to sell the Ninja 250 to a friend who needs a cheap commuter bike. (his Dodge Ram is killing him in gas costs!) My son wants the black fairing/plastics for his Ninja, so he'll put his midnight blue ones on my frame. Once I install the new fuel pump on the FZR, it's gone, too.


    Basically looks like I'll be down to 3 bikes soon, all HONDA!

    Yes the crossrunner has the V-Tec engine. However the V-Tec has been improved over that used in the VFR800 and comes in much smoother. i'm no lover of in line 4s for rir the reasons you give. My favourite engine configurations are Vs either 4s or twins and the air head BMW boxer twins. As an ex Wing owner I also like the flat 4 or 6 as it now is. My perfect bike at the moment would be the Honda crosstour with it's VFR 1200 engine in a Crossrunner style bike. I really loved the engine in my VFR1200DCT. However I will not be buying one because it is so tall I struggle to get on it let alone be safe riding it (:

    If you are referring to the early v-tech (02-05) then yes. They moved the engagement point and smoothed it out in the VFR in 06. Mine is butter smooth with a PC III.
