Friend of mine has a VFR800 (98), and is looking at the new (2002) Triumph Sprint ST (955)
Why? he is looking for more torque and about the same weight, also wants comfert
Anyone been on a Sprint, all the mags. are saying this beats the VFR hands down but I would like to hear your opion
From the articles I read, the VFR lost out to the Sprint for basically two reasons. It was down a bit on power, and it didn't have the factory hardbag option. The new 2002 VFR vs. Sprint test may have a different outcome.
We have a member (SprintST) over on our site that was looking to upgrade and looked at both the '02 VFR and '02 SprintST, including test rides. He went with the SprintST (that's what he owned before). There is some discussion in our forums about it (ST.N link in sig).
