These guys have amazing skill. I cannot believe they are riding the same beast (Honda VFR) that weighs hundreds of pounds.

Amazing control. How the hell does he remember which turn to take ... man must have practised this for months I guess...

VFR's in general sound different (sweet to my ears) as they have a V four engine, as opposed to horisontally mounted inline 4 cylinders on most other japanese bikes. Some after market exhausts change the loudness but the basic engine, drive, & valve flapping sound remains to be sweet on a VFR.

Yes, I know, but it appears to be a 1990-93 VFR, and I've seldom seen such small (and restrictive?) exhaust canisters on them.

I cannot really say from the video about the exhaust, like you said, it does appear to be smaller than the popular after market exhausts. Also my guess is that it is not the VFR 800, its the smaller version of the VFR - 400. Should be a lot more lighter.

Prasadee, with all due respect, after my experience with a VFR800 and the yamaha VMAX1200 ,i just cant digest a V-engine's exhaust note.
I'd compare it to a guy with a girl's voice.
Butt, this google video's bike does have a different note.
