    Some VFR1200X comments

    Was talking with my Honda dealer yesterday when making an appointment to get my brake issue looked into.   They had very few bikes on the floor and said they will probably be into Oct before they see much inventory build.  He said normally Honda will have upwards of 700 SKUs listed they “could” order.  Currently he said there is only like 7.   And the VFR1200X was one they can still get. 
    This amazes me as I really LOVE the CT!   Think a lot of people would if they gave them a try.  Just don’t think this bike got much exposure here in the States.  Only sold here in 2016 & 2017.   I bought my 2016 “new” in 2019. 
    Had read somewhere that Honda may be selling the VFR here in the U.S. again for 2021.    Anybody got any news in that regard? 
    Have a great day and safe riding!

    Not sure exactly what the position is over here but looking online , generally, there doesn't seem to be a lot of new motorcycle stock around. I assumed it's due to Corona virus and manufacturers not being able to make them and ship them around. A manager of a big Honda dealer I have been in contact with says they have been very busy and they have done 50 bikes this month (new registrations over here in September). Another slow seller, the CB1100RS and EX seem to have dropped in available numbers considerably. A bit like when they're gone they're gone.....

    New VFR1200XDs remain available. There’s a new 2017 listed at RC HIll Honda Power Sports in Deland, Florida for $9,999. I purchased my VFR 1200XD from them for the same price last year. One of the best value for money purchases I have ever made.

    I got mine cheap and the old stock is still floating around.  Totally worth it especially for a 10K score, I paid more than that....
