VFR vs K1200RS
I had a VFR before I sold it an got a 1999 K1200RS.
As far as power, high speed stability and riding 2 up, the K1200RS has the VFR beat.
Handling is about the same. Worse gas mileage, ( and K1200RS uses Premium Gas) by about 10-15%.
Also, for the K1200RS, be prepare to pay 100% more for maintainence and serivce compare to the VFR.
With the K1200RS at 51,000 miles....it will be an expensive bike to maintain.
If the clutch has not been been replace recently, be prepared to spend $2000 on the clutch (I am not kidding..it is 8.5 hours to replace the clutch.. Also, would need new shocks front and rrear. Check out the rear disc, as they tend to be worn to the limit (4.5 mm ) by 50-60,000 miles. A new rear disc will set you back $200-$400. If all those items are replaced recently, and the bike is in good shape, then it is a awesome ride.
A VFR with 3,700 miles on it is basically new with no need for repair.
Having said all that, the K1200RS is a better ride ....if you can stand the repair cost.
