When I purchased my VFR750FG, it was already 18 years old, but in good condition and cost me £1250 with Krauser hard 30L panniers.
The previous owner had bought it new and only done 31000 miles in 18 years.
A service and a taller screen have given me an excellent bike.
The brakes are below par compared to more modern stuff, but it is a comfortable, fast bike with excellent build quality.
In the 15 months I have owned and ridden it all year round, I have put another 12000 miles on it, and think it may be the best bike ever made.
It returns 40mpg ridden hard or 46mpg ridden normally.
It pulls cleanly from 3000rpm, and above 7000rpm takes off like a scalded cat to the 12000rpm redline.
I've seen 140mph on foreign motorways and think it will hit 150mph with the standard lower screen and no panniers.
