I've been a VFR aficionado for more than a decade. All it took was one ride on a friend's yellow 2000 model and I was hooked. Precious few motorcycles are as aurally stimulating, thanks to the V4 engine configuration and geardriven cams. And it wasn't just a neat bike to listen to, but highly competent all around. When the opportunity arose to secure my first-ever long-term testbike for Motorcyclist in '06, I quickly chose a VFR800 Interceptor. The VTEC-equipped, sixth-generation model was a great companion for 12 months; every bit as versatile as the previous generation. Fast-forward five years and Honda's new technological flagship, the VFR1200F with Dual Clutch Transmission, emerges. Unless you've been living under a rock, you know all about it. And as the VFR guy here, I had to have it!
