1999 Honda RC46 VFR 800 Anniversary

Vendor supplied images


  • Very, very low mileage VFR800 
  • One of only 250 Anniversary models 
  • Full history and paperwork from new 
  • Highly rated VFR, considered the last ‘pure’ version 
  • Long MOT to June 2024 with no advisories 

The Appeal 

Honda’s VFR is widely recognised as one of the greatest lineages in recent motorcycle history. Of that illustrious line the VFR800 is considered the last of the ‘pure’ models. According Motorcycle News it is arguably the best version of the best motorcycle ever built.  
Heady praise indeed. That certainly makes this VFR800 appealing. That it is also an exceptionally low mileage example and one of the 250 50th Anniversary models lifts it into a particularly rarified world.  
It is supplied with extensive history and presented in the sort of condition you would expect from such a low mileage bike. As Honda celebrates its 75th anniversary there is surely no better time to  buy this bike.
