I did a search on here and found 44 pages about the new VFR1200 but nearly all of it was speculation or links to magazine reviews done overseas or on race tracks. I've owned two VFR800's in my time both 6th gen and I would like to hear from those that test rode it, bought one and sold it or bought one and still own it. I would like to read a real world review on it by the everyday rider instead of a whole heap of negativity by people who only looked at the brochure. I would like to know what range you get cruising at 110 versus what you get around town or what you get if your twisting the wrist a lot. Finally one last red herring. I read that Honda were able to get remarkably smooth paint on the bike by vibrating the panel as they paint it to produce one of the smoothest paint finishes yet seen on a bike. So my question is if you scratched it how the hell does a panel beater in Australia repaint a panel on it and achieve the same standard of finnish that the rest of the bike has. I presume it's impossible in Australia.
