Enough of a diifference to make a diffference? :)

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.

I agree with Pete. The VFR barely lost and that was before the new upgrades to the VFR. Although personally I like the new Duck ST4s

Ride the Pace,

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).
