My VIN number ends in "900156", so I am assuming it is the 156th RWB-abs made. Bought the bike in July, 2007. Must have been sitting in the warhouse for awhile.
Given the size of Honda, I'm surprised they even fool with the VFR at all. 1000 bikes is nothing to a company the size of Honda. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the VFR line, but I don't see why they don't promote it more. How long has it been since you've seen an ad for one. They splash the CBR, Wing and VTX all over the place, but never a VFR.
Is this the bike you seen at Sportbike N.W. ? I met this guy around St Helen's and he said he was going back to Canada after returning from Sportbike Northwest...
Dang, you beat me, picked mine up Dec 30th, 00023, the other one that was in town was 00078
Wheres the 1st one?
I just ordered one yesterday, it's coming from the Longbeach warehouse to Hollister, CA. I'll post the VIN later this week.
just picked it up today, 900312 ABS
I've got 518 (RWB non ABS). Purchased September 07 in Auburn California.
900674, bought at Bell's Honda in Georgetown KY on 19 Oct
Did Honda make colors other than the RWB scheme for 2007?
If this is the case, comparing your VIN's is pretty useless, since they are not making "color runs" - the bikes coming off the end of the assembly line would most certainly be varying colors. In addition, sometimes the VIN sequence does not match the build sequence.
In other words, say they made black and red '07's in addition to the RWB scheme. If the day's production started with VIN # 901120, the first two off the line could be red, the next one black, the next 15 could be RWB. In order to get the info you guys are seeking, you would need to know:
A.) Total 2007 VFR 800 production (1400?)
B.) Color breakdowns across the board (or, how many RWB's?) If the statement about there being 1000 RWB's is true, the regualr colors are the rarest. Just a thought.
To have a "low number" bike does not mean that you have the "earliest" RWB, you might have the "first" RWB bike. (hawkman)
And 007 may not be a RWB(if other colors exist).
Just speaking from experience here - I maintain a Saab 9-2x (bastard three-way child of Saab, GM and Subaru (FHI)) registry and have run aross these issues before. This registry is 10,400 cars over two model years, with two trim levels and 8 colors. Pretty complex, much more so than a VFR registry would ever be.
Just my two cents.
That does make a lot of sense. I can't really see Honda making ALL the RWB at the same time, then ALL the reds or whatever.
Another question? Are all the VFR 800's made in the "M" factory? If not then the numbers will be really askew.
OOOH MAN!!!! I THINK IM WINNING SO FAR!!!!
I am the PROUD owner of #5!!!! Noooo idea how I got it but it is the only one the dealer had at the end of last year, they had it for display for a while and then I came along and bought it. I noticed it a while back... I was like, holy crap, I have the 5th one!
someone has to have #1!!!! where are you #1!
I now have 390. 008 lost it's life earlier this year in a flood we had. VFRs don't float.out:
Bet some dude at Honda has it.. or it's in there museum. If they made 4 reds in front of you, you cold have number #1
Poor Viffer, bet it didn't see it coming...
No way to save it?
Didn't want it back. It was under water for nearly a week. Luckly it was not at my home but at my brothers house parked next to his 2 NEW harleys. I had only made 2 payments on it.:frown:
Every time a VFR dies like that, an angel get shitcanned.
NOOO!!! Say it ain't so!!!:hurt: :sorry: :angel: :violin: :rip:
well work this out then i got mine in Aus in Sep and vin is 050008. Dealer said only 100 were made for Aus.
