Honda VTR1000F Firestorm

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' started by p_o_s, Nov 23, 2005.

  1. I get my unrestricted license in 2 weeks time, but as soon as I have it I will be going overseas for about a month.

    I have pretty much decided on the Honda VTR1000F Firestorm for my second bike, based on it's looks, sound and price.

    Is there any reasons why I shouldn't order the bike before I go overseas so that it is ready for me when I return in the New Year?

    Any feedback about the Firestorm would be well accepted too.


  2. Ride it first, and ride a 4 pot screamer and a few naked bikes as well. You need a bike that feels and steers right as well as the looks and sound and all that crap.

    Some people dig the broader power range of the twins, others leeeerve the slingshot feeling of a 4 cylinder litrebike hitting its powerband - and riding position is going to be a big difference to you after coming off a cruiser too.
  3. No reason at all. I've had my storm for 4 weeks now straight off the floor and i'm loving every minute of it. I giggle like a little kid every time i jump on it cos it's so fun to ride.
  4. I can definately recommend you don't listen to Deano. I make it a policy not to take advice from people who go around sniffing bicycle seats for sexual gratification.

    What I mean is, don't rob yourself of the joy of going for heaps of test rides, that's the best part about buying a new bike!!!
