    During a recent discussion at the local watering hole someone asked "how many of those (VFR12's) things were sold in the states" - I had no valid answer aside from "I don't think there were all that many from 2010 to '13"

    Anyone have any idea?

    Due diligent research uncovered this:

    Honda is recalling the VFR1200F from model years 2010, 2012 and 2013 (there was no 2011 model year version in the U.S.) because of a problem that can cause the driveshaft’s universal joint to separate or break. The recall affects 1,825 units in the U.S. including both Dual Clutch Transmission and manual versions. (UPDATE: Honda announced the same problem also affects VFR1200X models in Japan produced from March 2, 2010 to Sept. 2, 2015. The VFR1200X isn’t expected to arrive in U.S. showrooms until May 2016 so the problems should be rectified on American models before they get here.)

    Located here:

    which piqued my interest further leading to this which shows detailed information provided to the Honda dealership network:

    https://honda.oemdtc.com/Recall/RCRIT-15V821-3985.pdf

    It's a safe to quote 1825 units which covers all model years available in the U.S. - not very many at all for a single year let alone three, so yes I believe they qualify as being relatively rare birds here in the states.

    Although not a collector bike to some, values for the used VFR12’s 2010,2012,2013 have been about the same as I can remember over the years...:drink1:
