    Just like with my 07 Anniversary Edition there will be leftovers. I paid 6500.00 new.
    In my area the 1200 can be had for 10,000.00 - 12,000.00 new. ( leftover 2010 models)

    Oh, I don't know. The reception this bike is receiving, just by looking on this forum, is FAR better than the VFR1200 ever got. A big reason there were deals to be found on the '07 is because the economy tanked right after that.

    I can't dissagree about the economy situation but a big reason was Honda gave the dealers the incintive to move the 800s out was because the new 1200 had been introduced. Over a two year period of trying to deal on a 07 ,The dealer called me in 2010 with the deal I wanted with the reasoning of having to move them. We are fans of the Interceptor on this site, but seems a lot of buyers are more into the cbr race replica bikes and over look the VFRs all around performance. Almost every bike I've ever bought new I bought as two year leftovers at great discounts . Maybe I'm just the lucky one but I'm betting there will be leftovers two years from now. :-)

    Just sat on (and made vroom vroom noises) on the new FJR…. Although it looks super nice, its way to big and it costs a whole bunch of pesos to own. I think I would still prefer the VFR if they stay true to the 2009ish style.

    Does it have a six-speed transmission now? Sure hope so, but I doubt it.

    Think I'll stick to viffers, can't get enough of the V-4 symphony, but if the FJR had a six-speed transmission it would be a contender for my money.

    I paid $10k for my brand new 1990 3rd gen!!! Waay back when it hit the streets in 1990. Since then a 35% increase over 24 years doesn't look bad on paper. The difference is in my disposable income which has actually shrunk over that time period as the cost of houses has more that tripled while incomes have flat lined. Of course the wife and kids entering the picture doesn't help either but I wouldn't change a thing if I had another shot at it.

    Luckily for us, there is an abundance of used machinery out there that can be had for a fraction of new and they come with options if you so desire. While it is nice to see a new model arrive on the scene, this recycled 6th gen with new clothes looks more like a CBR than a sport touring machine and used CBRs are also plentiful if that styling is what you crave. The VFR12 was a step in the right direction for the breed. It wasn't perfect but it was a stronger and more versatile all day ride than this new machine will ever be. I would have preferred a revised VFR12 over this recycled 800. Perhaps an option which kept both bikes so we have a proper sport touring machine and then take the 800 and install inverted forks, lightweight everything and make it a track weapon VFR to honor its heritage.

    For now my cash rests safely in the hands of the tax man as always so my 07 will have to suffice and I'm ok with that.

    I wouldn't mind trying to use that gauge cluster on my 6th gen. Given how little has changed I would put money on it being a direct swap as far as the wiring harness is concerned.

    Knowing honda it will have a different connector and the signal levels would be different. ;)

    Now im interested in an updated ecu. The 6th gen ecu programming sucks, the engine starves waiting for the ecu to notice. If thats a direct swap, and I will be asking for ecu pinouts, then im going to try one.

    15k $ ill find a new 6th gen for a quarter that price. Only reason I paid what I did for mine was simple. Just look at the tank and smile. That and I have bike 19 off the line.

    If only they kept the under tail exhaust. Besides looking great it also didn't block the rear and showed off that single sided swing arm. One of my favorite things about the look of the 6th gen.

    Sure. I'm doubt it would make much of a difference to your every day rider. I'm also sure it Honda could do it without adding that much weight.

    Except that the haven't. Look at the weight difference between the 5th gen, 6th gen, and the new 800.

    I've also weighed the parts when I put the 6gen tail on my 5th.

    I'm with toe and tink. Not sure where the sticker-shock about the price is coming from. Price is in-line.

    On the other pictures I saw, I liked it, but it seemed a little too much "vanilla"....aka....gixxer fever, or R1-itis.

    I just cant justify selling a 6th gen for it, i can take or leave the look and they haven't made any adjustments to the engine. I just wish they would have removed the vtec, mine was fun for the first couple of years, However after riding other bikes I longed for the constant surge of acceleration not the twitchy bang of the vtec. I still love my engine and my bike, i just think more people would have bought the bike with the lower hp 5th gen engine for a couple extra $$ off msrp.

    can't wait to try the 2 bros carbon and its less than 4.7 pds when using just the one can, I am trying to strip some weight off. -maybe I should take the center stand off? The stock headers weigh a ton too-but its expensive to ditch those.-not high up weight. I am thinking of a lighter weight sprocket and chain kit.

    I think I like the one piece radiator the best. I have never been too keen on Honda's split, sideways radiators.

    I will definitely look into it when it hits the dealers. Price is about rite. Sure there are other bikes coming in a little cheaper but they aren't V4s or Hondas. I paid $12000 for my 13 Repsol 600RR & $13700 for my 13 Tuono but they can't give me what the VFR can. It's all in the eye of the beholder.

    8k seemed like a lot when I signed for a new 96. Since then I've learned that Honda lost money on VFRs year after year just to have the best tech in the market. Not unlike Cadillac, the viffer often foreshadowed tech that would appear on other models in subsequent years. Fast forward almost 2 decades and the 4th generation is still the quintessential vfr. I like the 1200. Will probably own one some day, but till then, center gears and carbs are just fine over here. The 97 in my stable cost less than a similar year civic, but smokes 94 percent of the cages on the road at only a slightly higher cost to operate. Life really is good.

    Dealerships here are selling brand new CBR600s for more than that, so I don't think 12,500 is a bad price at all. Think you guys should just keep looking in the used market if you don't like new prices.
