Honda VFR1200F becomes UK top-seller in Feb 2010

All-new VFR surprises critics with promising post winter sales

HONDA'S new VFR1200F sports tourer has becoming the top-selling motorcycle in the UK in February 2010, notching up 97 sales nationwide.

Figures released today by the Motorcycle Industy Association showed sales of the all-new 1200cc V4 more than quadrupled that of the usual strong-selling BMW R1200RT, of which just 22 units were sold last month.

The news will come as welcome relief to Honda UK, after the V4 was panned by many journalists at its world press launch for the bike's small tank range, quirky looks and £11,500 asking price.
