I just bought a new VFR a month ago and have now covered over 1000miles on it. It's very comfortable (though i'm 6' 2") and its got plenty of pull for me, but maybe not for other people. My last bike was a CB1300S and i had an SV650S before that and this probably has more pull than the CB, though it's not as good low down the rev's, which isn't really a shock. The only issue i have with it is the throttle response can be very snatchy below 6k rev's. Also, in lower speed limits, such as 20's & 30's it's almost impossible to keep the throttle smooth, even on the smoothest of roads... don't even mention norfolk's finest bumpy, pot-holed ones! It really can be a nightmare at times to be honest, but i'm currently trying to get honda to sort it for me, and if they do, it will be an excellent bike. With better fuelling and a better throttle response, i would definately recommend it. But i have heard of ones that are very smooth... so i live in hope! lol. I think whichever of the three you pick, you'll be happy with though. Good luck choosing!
