Hello everyone,
I am kind of in a pickle here between the two bikes. The 93 VFR 750 has 50K miles on it while the 87 VFR 700 has 14K. I am new to both bikes so I dont know a lot about them except that the 750 has more power.

The price of each is 2800... which adds to the problem.

Any information will be very greatful!
Thank you,
Syfi

The earlier V-4s had huge problems with trannies and cam wear. Better avoid the older one.

BTW. The price of each is way too high.

Save your money. $1500 more (maybe even not that much) will buy an older ('99 - '02) Triumph Sprint ST, which is the British version of the VFR, but with a better motor and better luggage.

Try for the '02 and newer, because they have a "newer" EFI system and more compact motor.

How much should I offer for these bikes? Ive looked for triumph and nothing comes up in my area..
NADA online doesn't go that far back.

KBB.com suggests:

1987 VFR700F2

$1840 retail, $1210 trade-in.

1993 VFR750F

$3080 retail, $2090 trade-in.

This is for bikes in "Good" condition - worth probably half that or less in non-running/marginally-running condition.

Quotes worth precisely what you paid for them.
