But therye are alot of people looking for a replacement for the 750 And IMHO ,this ain't it. And for that matter neither was the vtec.
I think you might be right.
Sadly you will not be getting a 'replacement' for the 750 while Superbikes and the like are racing 1000cc's. There is no reason to try to make a 'class leading' 750 any more.
The V-four engine had to be astonishingly expensive to manufacture and it can only have been worth doing that while 'racing' was bringing in the Yen.

price..i think about 12k?

It wouldn't surprise me if the new VFR came in at £10k+.
My guess? Getting on for clsoe to £15,000 (perhaps 'only' £14.500) and that will be too expensive - but the DN-01 is £9k and that has fuck all 'technology' bolted on to it. The 'Blade with C-ABS is best part of £11k already.
Are these people sure its the new Honda?
I only ask because that shaft drive hub is identical to the ones on the current BMWs, doncha think?
Apart from that I think its about time Honda made a really good all - round big inch V4.
A .will the later 750,s become collectable.
For sure. (Everything becomes 'collectable' eventually)
B is it viable to spend ,maybe a grand getting it back to good condition? or will I just spend my 3or4 grand on something else(Honda) that maybe doesn't suit quite as well.
It's awful. Fugly at the front, BMW at the back. It'll cost a fortune and have more unessary baubles, whistles and bells than a Jap saloon car. Pants. Never thought I'd say this, but maybe a BMW 12 would be a better buy? After all, they're the ones with shaft drive experience. And they don't get the tea boy to design the fairing on their bikes..
Guess I'm keeping the Sprint then....

If you like the VFR why not fix it up? New bearings, suspension and pair of tyres will make if feel like new. A clean it up and replace anything that is 'tatty' will make it look like new. Fit stainless fasteners, brake (and clutch) lines and get a stainless exhaust system and it'll last for ages too.

Stainless headers are good but about £600 fitted I believe,
HOW MUCH???? Eek!
Apparently you can get good ones from Sandy Bike Spairs for a couple of hundred quid and it is only an afternoon of fiddling to get them fitted.
There will be rusty studs that could be a pain - but other than needing a 10mm 1/4" drive with universal joints and extension bars to get to the rear clamp nuts it is not going to be that hard..
