Honda killing the VFR ?

Rumor is that after 2007 the vfr will be no longer..Has anyone else heard of this tragedy? To delete the VFR is absurd..The reliability of the V4 powered Interceptor is lost and the beautiful exhaust note along with comfort..
I have a 99 VFR800 with 21,000 trouble free miles ..I myself dont care for 140-160 hp sportbikes as you cant use it all on the street.
Track yes ,street NO...

The Interceptor was introduced in 1983 and up until 2006 has earned many raves from motorcycle magazines over the years for best motorcycle of the year award for a all around do it all bike.

So why is Honda killing the VFR...I got it, all the SQUIDS/Stunters want 115-160 hp 600/1000cc machines /go fast , scream like bumble bees in heat and they can be posers sitting in the local hangout parking lot after doing wheelies down main street..

TRUE? I prefer a machine that i can ride on 300-800 mile trips without calling a doctor to straighten out my spine after 120 miles of riding on a plywood seat/bent over like a prison inmate.

But then again to each his own .. Any V4 riders out there who are shocked about the demise of the VFR? please reply.

keep it upright and between the ditches..lol

Sad to see it go if it's true, but unfortunately it doesn't matter how many rave reviews the mags give it if it still doesn't sell well.

The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
