The smallest of the Interceptors, the VF500 is claimed by some to be the best, thanks to absolutely incredible handling. The 500cc engine was a mutt of Honda parts – the bottom end from the non-US VF400F combined with two top ends from the VT250. This got you 70 horsepower, enough for 128 miles per hour through the 6 speed transmission. Redline was at an impressive 12K, and the entire package weighed about 440 pounds when ready to roll.

In their first ride review, Cycle World summed up the baby Interceptor by saying: “a bike that looks this good, handles this well, has such a wonderful engine and costs no more than its competitors is more than just a “nice bike.” It’s damn near irresistible.”

Manufactured in December of 1983, this example is VIN: PC1216EM0001251. The seller purchased this motorcycle two years ago from the original owner.

During his ownership, the seller has covered approximately 6,000 miles. The odometer shows 20,547 miles.

The seller reports that he has serviced the clutch master cylinder, cleaned the carburetors, changed all of the fluids, and installed new Dunlop RS-310R tires with date codes of 2520 and 4320.

Kerker Systems exhaust.
