Rise of the Interceptor – 1984 Honda VF1000F

In Japan, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

The Honda VF1000F (VF standing for V-Four) was launched in 1984 as the flagship of the V4 line. Featuring a DOHC 998cc engine that produced 113 horsepower, adjustable Pro-Link suspension, and triple discs, this bike was released in response to America’s demand for an even bigger Interceptor.

Retailing at $4,995, this bike entered a competitive marketplace, but it struck the perfect balance for most riders. As Motor Cyclist put it,

“It’s currently the only machine that gives a sport rider good sporting handling and the overall engine performance that you’d expect from the newest generation of superbikes.”

This specific Honda VF1000F is completely original, and comes with the OEM shop manual, owner’s manual, and original tool kit. In addition to the painted rims currently on the bike, you’ll also receive a second set of OEM wheels. It’s claimed to be a daily rider, which is impressive, and it’s in good shape. For the money, it’d be hard to find a more reliable classic.
