V-tec or earlier?

VTEC 800 ABS - it'll be a new one
Without the need for a commuter it makes sense to have something slightly more compfy for the open road, a blackbird or busa is probably a bit too big so I'm curious about the VFR.
How about one of these? http://www.visordown.com/articles/view/yamaha_fz_1_world_launch/6.html
the vtec is a cracking bike , even better if it was fitted with an FiW engine though....
The VFR 800 was the best engineered bike I have ever had, with an awsome engine in the pre VTEC form. There are faster bikes out there, buit how often do you want to do more than 150? Realistically?From what I have read, the VTEC is simply something that Honda did "because they could". It doesnt add any more power at the top end, and takes it away from the bottom end. Its not even a proper variable valve set up like you have in some cars. Its either full on 4 valves or 2 with no in between. Habvve a look at this month's Bike magazine where they run a comparison.
