In the late 70s, Honda offered both a CB750F and a CB900F, but per their marketing department the US only got the 750 and Europe only got the 900. Both markets were upset about this because humans always think the grass is greener on the other side. It took a few years, but Honda eventually satisfied the US by bringing the 900F over as well, and the press loved it – Cycle magazine called it “one of the best performance buys on the market.” This example has been sitting most of its life, but the seller has put in “a ton of work into the bike to get it road worthy and it is running as new” so that you can enjoy it next.
The 901cc inline four engine put out 89 horsepower and 56 pound-feet of torque, good for a top speed of about 135 miles per hour. For more on the 900F, check out this profile from Hemmings.
This bike (VIN: JH2SC0103CM106235) is claimed to be in “wonderful condition” as it has been given a a mechanical “overhaul” of sorts – the brake system, carbs, and suspension have been rebuilt. The fuel tank was sealed with RedKote, and everything is said to work well. The sole flaw is a small dent on the right side of the tank.
