this is probably a dumb question, but what are the differences between the vfr's and rvf's? other than the rvf's look more badass

Not much. The rear wheel size, fake air scoops on the RVF (along with slightlly different plastics), and I think the carbs on the RVF are slightly different (I want to say slightly smaller). This is all from memory and I didn't google so I may be remembering incorrectly, but I used to be more up on it when I had my VFR400.

Oh well, I went ahead and looked it up...here.

If I remember my Honda venacular correct the RVF would have been the factory
homologized version of the VFR for a supersport racing class, probably a Japan class.
It would have had the trick bits that couldn't be changed because of the rules.

Or I may be speaking from my smelly orfice....

Oh yeah, super nice scoot but the high exhaust, pillion peg delete but still has the pillion pad looks odd...

Desmorider..... GREAT BIKES!...Nice collection and good work on the restos...


TexasTornado.....I also love the musclebike era..... I got wood over that GS1150....Always wanted a Vmax....I can remember the battles between the Vmax and Magna V65, as well as the 85 GSXR1100.... I was a kid in the mid 80s but remember them like it was yesterday.

I freaking loved those 400's. I thought the only ones in the states was the FZR 400...?? That was the only one I spied from time to time. The Hondas, Zooks, and Kaws were all from either Euro, or Japanese bike mags.

Sold here in the U.S. dealers? (Or were they gray import?)

Many of them made their way in to the west coast of the US. A lot also came in through Singapore, via Great Britain.
