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.

General Comments:

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
