Bikes for sale

Produced between 1988 and 1994, the Honda VFR400 (or NC21/NC24/NC30 as they were commonly known respectively) cashed in on a sportsbike-mad '90s UK biking culture and is effectively a shrunken version of Honda's VFR750R homologation-special superbike.

Combining gorgeous looks with great handling and usable power, the dinky VFR was part of a wave of 400cc supersport machines that Brits simply couldn't get enough of. Producing a respectable 60bhp from its six-speed, liquid-cooled, 16-valve V4, it would make a worthy addition to anyone's garage and will only ever go up in value.


Cheaper than its brother, the RVF400, it was the weapon of choice for riders wanting a slice of poster exotica at a fraction of the price. Capable of 128mph, the bike combined decent performance with quality touches like a single-sided swing arm and legendary Honda build-quality.

Like many other 400s at the time, some of these machines came to the UK as grey imports and so it's important you check out the history of any potential purchase. Find a good one though and you certainly won't be disappointed.
