Honda debuted an updated VFR800F during the 2013 EICMA show in Italy. The middleweight sport-tourer gets a number engine and chassis upgrades for 2014. Honda improves low- and mid-range power from the liquid-cooled 782cc V-Four by optimizing cam timing and valve overlap in the VTEC engine . The mill now produces a claimed 104.5 horsepower at 10,250 rpm and 55.4 lb-ft of torque at 8500 rpm. Big Red worked to improve the VTECs valve timing as it transitions from low to high rpm too and now claims improvements in linear power delivery as a result. The PGM-FI fuel injection system, with 36mm throttle bodies, was revamped according to the new engine settings. Honda also includes its Traction Control System as standard equipment, adding TCS controls to the left handlebar and stating the system will cover a wide variety of riding conditions and situations.
