Ordinarily, the motorcycle industry is in a head-spinning technological arms race. A mad dash to feed technophiles their traction control and XM Radio; serve up ego-maniacs their astronomical engine-displacement figures; and deliver to mobile couch potatoes their heated seats. But there must be a few people like me left out there-people who just plain like to jump on something and ride it.

Like any of us who’ve been around for a while, Honda’s VFR has changed. Meet one on the street and you’d never guess it was once the VF750F that tossed the sportbike world on its collective head in 1983. There’s no hint of Fred Merkel’s ’85 AMA Superbike Championship, Wayne Rainey’s five-straight wins in ’86, or the 190-mph RC45 that won eight of 10 races under Miguel DuHamel in ’95.
