I have a K1200RS and a VFR. Bought the VFR after having the K for about a year. The K is the long distance bike with cruise control, hard bags, heated grips, blah-blah-blah. The VFR is my "go out for a few hours and blast throught the twisties" bike. Add Honda hard bags to it, throttlemeisters and a Sargent seat ( I added the last two) and it's long distance bike. Gets better mileage and has a greater range than the K. The VFR will pull hard but you've got to get it over 7K RPM (where VTEC engages) for it to happen. It's lower weight and higher pegs become apparent when you hit the twisties. I've unintentionally dragged the pegs on the K.
