- 2002 Honda VF750C Magna

What better engine to power a 750cc performance cruiser than a V4 derived from Honda's championship winning superbikes?

That's right. The heart of every Magna is its high-revving, short-stroke V4. Blessed with four carburetors, four valves per cylinder and double overhead camshafts, Magna's 748cc V4 spins to rpm other cruisers only dream about. Yet, with its 10.8:1 compression ratio and optimized bore/stroke configuration, the VF750's abundant low-end torque is always ready.

It may sound like a superbike, but the Magna has cruiser 'attitude' with a low 710mm seat height, a detachable rear seat and a stretched 1,652mm wheelbase.

The VF750 Magna. The power cruiser with superbike credentials.
