I currently have a 6th gen. VFR800 (2007) 35K miles. Runs perfectly with no major issues. It's pretty much stock, the only thing I've done is install a Zero Gravity windscreen. Anyway...I've come across a 2010 VFR1200 (Non-DTC) with 3K miles, and with hardbags for a smoking deal. I took it for a test ride and was expecting to be blown away, but I wasn't. It wasn't a bad experience, but just different than I thought it would be. The engine seems buzzy and more noisy, I really thought it would be more throaty and growly than my 6th gen. The reason I'm really looking at the 7th generation VFR is the fact that it has a shaft drive and ABS. I'm so tired of cleaning and lubing the chain. I really love doing some trips with distance and not having to think of your chain really appeals to me. And of course the ABS speaks for it'self....it would be nice to have that little bit of safety margin. So is there anyone out there that has made the jump from 6th to 7th generation? What are your thoughts? Would you do it again? Do you regret selling your 6th gen? I appreciate any feedback that I can get.
