The VFR is a great bike- but people are weird. They'll pay big $$ for a bike with a European nameplate, but somehow feel that despite their deep-rooted knowledge of Honda quality, can't see themselves paying too much for a "Japanese bike". I've seen it- I don't know if it's latent racism, mere snobbery from marketing way back- but I will tell you that the VFR possesses plenty of trick bits- but it's not cruiserish enough, and it's not being ridden by Spies et al. so it's hard to be a poseur. It's simply a decent motorcycle with high build quality- and sadly, it's been a financial downer every time I've stocked them.

Great bike- but sadly ignored by legions of pirates and stuntaz who make up the bulk of the market.
