    Going to buy a 2015 vfr800 in March, this will be my first street bike, I am wondering about the factory quick shift option? It sounds cool will it be worth it? Any other advice welcome.

    VFR is a big bit of bike for a first road bike, take care.

    Bad idea unless you have prior riding experience, at least 100 miles riding in city traffic. A big bike won't forgive common beginner mistakes easily, and bodywork is uber-expensive. Like jumping in the deep end before you've proved you can swim. A VFR is best as a ride you graduate into after you've passed your exams on smaller bikes. :smile-new:

    It's a topic debated here over hundreds of posts and dozens of years.

    Sorry slightly misunderstood I said first street bike, currently riding a wr250r dual sport, spent a year on this bike deciding what to get well gaining some experience. This will still be a large step up.
