U.S. Colors were white w/red & blue stripes (R/W/B), Europe got all white or white with a large red stripe through the mid section and on the front fender w/gold pinstripes on the edges of the red. This model dropped 49 pounds off the (VF700/750F) weight at 215.9 kg (476 lbs). Honda claimed 105 Hp. The weakest part of the package were the 37mm forks with wimpy springs. The forks still had TRAC mechanical anti-dive mechanisms. This bike needed a fork brace and progressive springs before it left the showroom. Brakes are now "gold" painted instead of black. Typically it had about a $1,000 price penalty for the extra 50cc's. A $4k (USD) engine race kit was available from HRC which included a Titanium exhaust system.
