• Only 4 miles from new

Always the innovator in motorcycles, Honda liked to showcase their technology that had been used in world racing circuit, both for factory prototypes and production series machines. Featuring a 16 valve double overhead cam 998cc V-4, the VF1000 series introduced three main models, the VF1000, the VF1000F Interceptor and the VF1000R in March of 1984. The 90° V-4 liquid cooled engine produced 130 horsepower at 10500 rpm. While the standard VF1000 wore a half fairing, the more aggressive VF1000R wore a full fairing befitting a motorcycle whose history was translated from the track. The VF1000R also benefitted from major engine upgrades, improved suspension, body work and attention to rider ergonomics. Straight cut gears operated the cams instead of chains, and the heads received redesigned modeling to improve power. The frame was fabricated from square section tubes and suspension included Honda's TRAC anti-dive technology. Stopping power came from 4-caliper brakes on dual floating discs just as with the six cylinder CBX, all on Honda's composite wheels. With a full fairing, rear set foot controls and adjustable handlebars, the VF1000R had all the visual cues of a street legal race motorcycle.

This Honda VF1000R comes to you virtually brand new, with only 4 miles registered on the odometer although a few easily replaceable parts were scavenged from the motorcycle years ago. The motorcycle is an example of the highest display of street motorcycle technology by Honda for the 1980's, with a direct heritage linked the race tracks of the world.
