  1. I've said this before, but I would not recommend frame sliders to anyone on this bike. I had these same R&G sliders on my first 2010 VFR1200F. I was t-boned by a car at slow speed and low sided with the bike sliding about 10-15 feet down an urban road. My frame was tweaked at the slider mount point and the slider was ripped right off. The bike was about 45 days old at the time and written off due to damage the sliders caused on the opposite side of bike, not where the car hit me. The insurance adjuster said that frame sliders do this often with many of the bikes he writes off. Additionally, the plastics were all scratched and cracked on the side it landed on (opposite where the car hit me). So the slider didn't save sh1t. I bought a second VFR1200 (a dual clutch version), 60 days later and never installed them on any bike since then including my new 2018 CBR1000RR SP1. If you want protection for a tip over, get some some panniers. They make better sliders than these things.

  4. When the bike came out, a couple of euro magazines like Motociclismo of Spain/Italy said it looked like a pissed off buffalo and referred to the bike as La búfala (spanish feminine word for Buffalo). Vee (for V4)+ falo (shortened buffalo)=veefalo. Just search for the word buffalo on this site for more details.
