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 one’s even better as it’s got the rare Honda Sport Kit and Hondaline fairing with lowers!
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 Motorcycle Classics.
In addition to the fairing and sport kit, this bike is equipped with a ATK fork brace, clock, and voltmeter. It’s also got recent tires and a new battery, and the seller says that it “runs and rides like it’s the 80’s.” The seller is Dave Sorkow, who I visited last year during my Moto Guzzi road trip:
