    I bought my 2016 CR a year ago and bought a two year Honda Warranty at the same time. Needless to say nothing has gone wrong with the bike during this period (its a Honda!!).
    As with all insurance, it is impossible to know if you get value for money. Peace of mind, yes. But the CR was new to me and looked mighty complicated if it were ever to break, so I got the insurance. Knowing what I know now I would probably not bother. These bikes are very reliable.
    Who in their right mind would design a vehicle that falls over when it stops?

    This new model (14+ VFR800F and 15+ VFR800X) appears to be the most reliable of all the incredibly reliable VFR800s.

    However, that doesn't mean there isn't the odd issue flying round here and there; I am currently working an engine management light issue related to the front wheel speed sensor, fortunately under original warranty.

    Is it a case of "I'd rather have it and not need it, than need it and not have it"? You can only answer that for yourself; your financial position is unique and your own as is your interpretation of what the reliability of the VFR800 is like.

    All we can give you is our opinions. Mine is that I have never considered it necessary.

    YMMV  :031:
    98 VFR800 - 130,000 miles, 08 VFR800 - 76,000 miles, 15 VFR800X - 44,000 miles (all sold)
    14 VFR1200 - 20,000 miles
    18 VFR800X - 16,000 miles
    01 VFR800 Fi-1 - 9000 miles

    Bought a honda genuine warrantee  which starts to run at the end of the dealers warantee. Some dealers will let you buy a warrantee which removes their need to give you that 3 months. Its a big profit maker for the dealer so negotiate, but for me it was worth it.
    15 months warrantee for a few hundred quid.
    Of course nothing has failed, its a crossrunner. Its like this forum, its very quiet because nothing bad happens. Now if you take a look at any  r1200gs forum, ouch.....

    Ditto for Kawasaki Z900 forum. In fairness the Kwaker is reliable but seems to initiate an endless need to throw money at it, for 'blingy' modification reasons.
    Our quiet CR forum reflects satisfied ownership with a bike that is fundamentally right and a pleasure to ride.

    Beemers really are "exciting"....
    Had quite a few of them and had my share of teutonic error. Never again!
    Allthough my beemers where quite aged.

    I wouldn't bother about warranty with a vfr.
    Stop making sense

    Warranties are like any other insurance policy; they are based on the potential cost of repair and balance against the probability, plus a margin so they make a bit of money out of it. On average, if you have a warranty policy for the life of the bike you'll spend more on it than if you kept some money aside for the odd repair . . . but that's on average, there are exceptions if you get a lemon that has several expensive repairs needed. Biggest benefit is if financially you'd struggle to pay the money for a serious repair (e.g. engine out job and some innard replaced) as you don't have to worry about finding the cash, but if you think you could manage to cover such an eventuality, I wouldn't bother with extended warranties. In practice, most tend to have caveats around wear and tear anyway which excludes quite a bit.
