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.”
