1996 Honda VF750C Magna
Dependable power that handles the twisties
Nothing has gone wrong with this bike in almost 10000 miles.
Could use a bigger gas tank, but after 100 miles I want to strech the legs anyway.
Bought the Magna with 1600 miles on it, and I have enjoyed adding 10000 in a year and a half.
It runs like a champ, with only my buddy's Vmax giving me problems in the 1/4 mile (low 12's).
I added a few tricks that makes it look good and run even better. I want to hang onto this bike for a long time.
The former bike I owned, the Kawi ZL600, was fun, but wasn't good on the long hauls (short wheelbase and too light). The Magna could use a seat, but it's WAY better than my Kawi seat. Rode the Magna 8 hours and it didn't tweak my butt much.
If you want a fast, dependable, corner hugger cruiser, this is the bike for you.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
