1998 Honda VTR1000F
Underrated cheap speed
Rectifier went in Brugge this year -- apparently common at this age -- cost £80. Apart from that, nothing.
Excellent cheap speed, bought it for trips to europe annually, and it's now done 3 at ridiculous speeds. Not as fast as R1's etc, but who needs to do more than 160 (indicated). Only servicing has been regular oil/filter changes.
Fit a set of Remus Grand Prix -- sounds amazing and definitely makes a difference to the performance.
Only down side is I think it looks a bit bland. Fuel consumption is OK, just the tank size lets it down, but you need a rest after 100 miles anyway.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
