1983 Honda VF750F Interceptor
Great bike for commuting and fun riding
Speedometer cable snapped twice.
Hooter works intermittently, despite being replaced with a new unit.
Petrol leaks from carburettor when standing on side stand, owing to plastic floaters (according to dealer).
Manual choke not very effective.
Rear-view mirrors cannot be set properly to see traffic behind if the rider is slightly bigger than average (taller, not fatter).
Bikini fairing/windscreen not effective, more for cosmetics.
Quite quick and moderately powerful.
Excellent handling ability, especially in congested traffic situations.
Great commuter - I use it daily over a distance of approx. 45 km per day, 5 days a week.
Parts still available, despite the bike being almost 25 years old.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
