"[G]enerally accepted by magazine reviews, year after year, to be the best all-round street bike built to-date"? This feels like an advertisement to me. I have read magazine reviews praising the Suzuki SV650 or the Ninja 500 as the "best street bike". Depending on which magazines you read, you could come away thinking a Harley-Davidson Sporster is the "best all around street bike".

Revert on 18 Sep 2006[edit]

A lot of the additional information added appears to have be taken verbatim from here (may redirect to main page--click the "history" link).

In addition, the formatting was horrible, and some of the information was questionable, e.g. the V30/500cc was tagged as "Magna only" yet there was a 500cc Interceptor.

Some of the information is good, however, and probably should be integrated in a more graceful manner.--18:13, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

Sorry about the mis-information and "horrible" formatting. This was my first posting. I will attempt a second "more graceful" posting.

Go for it. --Pi3832 19:52, 21 September 2006 (UTC)

Hi there. I think this page needs some help. Its title is VF and VFR motorcycles, but it includes information on RVF models. So, why not information on STs (also Honda V4s)? Yes, I can see the reason for including the one and not the other, and I agree with it, but let's figure out a way to more gracefully integrate the RVF. Note sure where to start, though...JZH

Major rewrite needed[edit]

Much of this article would seem to be in need of a major rewrite. As it is an introductory article that is not about particular VF(R) models, that function needs to be promoted. Also, a more informative history section would be useful. I propose to get revisions under way soon. Merry Christmas! Arrivisto (talk) 11:06, 25 December 2014 (UTC)

The current (unreferenced) intro begins: "The Honda VF and VFR series (VF meaning Vee-Four, and VFR meaning Vee-Four Road) ..." . VF does mean V4 (& VT means v-twin); but I don't think "R" means "Road". If anything, it means "Racing". Honda tended to add an "R" suffix once a model was revised to be more sporty; e.g. XR200 became XR200R, etc. Arrivisto (talk) 12:43, 25 December 2014 (UTC)
