Description

Click here for an VINData Motorcycle History Report on this 1985 Honda VF1000R Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

When it was released, the VF1000R was a bit of a revelation: it was Honda’s flagship, designed to showcase what the Japanese firm was capable of. It was also a huge tease to US riders, because it was initially only released in Europe only – America got the VF1000F instead, which was designed to be more of a touring bike.

The R was Honda’s first road bike to benefit from gear-driven cams and came decked out in fully faired, racer replica bodywork with rearset footpegs and adjustable clip-on handlebars for a more racer-ready riding position.

Manufactured March 1985, this example is VIN: JH2SC1608FM001855. The seller purchased the bike two years ago from Burn Up Company Vintage Motorcycles.

During his ownership the seller has covered approximately 200 miles. The odometer shows 14,459 miles.

Maintenance:
The seller states, “I had the fluids flushed, the carburetors rebuilt, and a new battery installed within the last month for the bike to be sold. The tank has been sealed by Burn Up Company while they owned it”

Modifications:
European variant tank.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Bridgestone Battlax tires with date codes of 4413 and 0214.
