The first redesign of the 781cc V-4 engine. This model marks the end
of an era in the VFR lineage; gone are the gear-driven cams. 2002
models now use timing chains to drive the camshafts.
We see a number of new features show up here, too. The V-4 engine now
has VTEC. The fuel tank has grown to 5.8 gallons (up from 5.5 gallons).
The high-exit pipes leave the rear wheel and single-sided swingarm
unobstructed. There are 4, yes, 4, bulbs in the headlight assembly
(2 H4 low/high-beams and 2 H7 high-beams).
Word has it there will be
available for this bike, from Honda.
