OK, OK. I wrote the "The Bomb" review. I finally sold the VX (what a sad day that was) to get a 900RR. Now I know what a fast bike is. I also know what one with character is: the VX800. I wish that I could afford to keep two bikes. The VX had personality that the RR just doesn't have. I love the CBR for it's performance, but miss the VX's sense of character. Great bike.

Being a new rider I really don't have much to compare my VX800 to, but all the positive comments I have read are true. Runs smooth, great stability, good mid range torque, etc. Mine had 11,600 miles when I bought it last month, and after putting another 1,300 on it in five weeks I swear its running better each day. Maybe it's just now getting broke in? Could be as I have read of others going strong at 60,000 miles plus. What I like best is the way I can be riding in traffic and not have to worry about shifting all the time. With the torque being what it is, I can get up to 65mph, slow down as low as thirty five because of slow traffic or whatever, and go back to sixty five plus without shifting!! A great plus for a beginner.

Why buy one of the new standards when you cane have a torquey 800cc v-twin for under 3000 bucks. It rides/looks good. People can't believe that it is 10 years old. All and all, it is a good compromise between a crotch rocket and a laid back cruiser. I wish I had two.

Just a quick review on my second bike after my pristine SECA 550 was totaled by a car. Although I am on the short side of 5ft. 5in. this machine feels is as easy to touch my feet to the ground as my previous one. Being a mature rider who is returning to motorcycling, I appreciate the smooth nature of this beast with its ample power and torque. So far my trips have been under 200kms and I have plans for a larger one this summer. With an Air Hawk GT windshield and a set of soft bags, this machine can go a far distance and seems to be comfortable. It does not have the shortest turning radius and can be a bit top heavy. Still it tracks very well is capable in the corners at a comfortable speed. The VX 800 Web site is very helpful.

I've had two! It has great torque, its comfortable and looks good. I went canyon riding with it, I took long trips. The current cruisers are a step backward because they don't roll-on as well or are as comfortable. I got about 45 mpg and it was smooth. I've had about 25 bikes and this one is near the top. There are faster bikes but overall I give this one a 5-star. Note: the 90's had a fuel petcock problem that caused the bottom-end to flood and could bend a rod; there is a recall. My first one had that and threw a rod through the cases. Suzuki fixed it under warrantee.

The VX800 with a liquid-cooled V-twin and shaft drive is a solid machine that does as well in the twisties as on the daily commute. The styling in now being copied by newer standards. You'll find it to have a very strong roll-on in all bands with great mid-range power. The front suspension needs reworked as the stock springs are too soft. Over, this is a great value, if you can find one.
