Yeah I was reading that so thats why I asked. I'm more interested in the feeling of riding a V4 than the numbers really. For instance, is power generated exponentially like an I4? And do they vibrate any at lower RPMs? Those kinds of things.bpmull said:the vfr's are v4's so just find out how they perform compared to the I4's
i just thought it was a weird question since most bikes are not V4's... anyways, i rode my buddies 90 or 91 (not to sure about the year) VFR for about 120 miles on the highway, and i thought it was pretty smooth. not as fast as my 01 R6, but i am sure the newer ones are. it was pretty solid, being a Handa and all... also, it had a Yoshimura system and i thought it sounded really nice. i didn't really think that it felt much different. not sure if it was just cuz it was old, but as far as vibration, i think it shook more at high RPMs than on my R6. well take my opinion how you want, as i am comparing an early 90s VFR 750 to my 01 R6... but i don't think that it was a noticeable difference.Tekvicious said:Are you all retards?? He asked about V4's not radial engines or turbines or something hard to find.
VFR all V4
Suzuki Madura v4
Honda Sabre v4
Stop acting as if he asked for a nuclear power tricycle.
AMEN Smitty!Smitty said:I think a lot of young 'uns had best do as the rest of us have done for ages. We look up what the makers offer & read the specification sheets for it feeds us a lot of info & so much better then looking for which is faster then the other by a few mph.
We also buy & swamp m/c mags with the others & read them from front to back ESPECIALLY where there is info on a new bike or possibly a test.
In this way when someone asks a sensible question then you can give a sensible answer.
True I am not interested in Cruisers yet I read the write-ups. I am no longer a dirt comp rider though I keep up with what is on the market. .
I ride a 01 VFR.. the power comes in a very linear way, from the low end all the way to the top. Check out this chart, HP is almost in a straight line and torque is there even at low rpm's.King Cobra said:Yeah I was reading that so thats why I asked.
