Hello everyone, my name is Dimitris and I am looking to bye a Virago 750cc. Now this is more difficult than it’s sound. First there aren’t many bikes available to start with here in Greece. And there is a strong opinion that I will have to get certain model 1994 to 1997 I think to be a solid purchase. I don’t know the differences between models(if any) and I am looking here for help. I am posting

Dimitris,

The choice is really yours to make.

Me, I would go with the 1997 for it will have the latest upgrades over the 1994 model.

For example: the Regulator / Rectifier under the Left passenger foot peg has a more robust design, it has cooling fins that the 1994 does not.

There may also be other upgrades that the 1994 may not have.

Do your own research and compare the two model years for differences.

See picture number 14 to see cooling fins on the Regulator Rectifier

I would pick the blue one, it looks nicer, not rusty. The 1981 Virago is probably the best, it doesnt have the air injection which can give you headaches and they look nicer as well. They can be easily made to look more sportier if you want it but the 90s ones will always be a cruiser style no matter how hard you try.

Thanks a lot both of you for your answers. I will soon get one of them and start working with “her”

I am reading everything I can get to help find out what I should pay attention to. Here in Greece the legend says that the one with the rims with spokes is the best model but it sounds crazy to me we will see 💪🏻 Thanks again
