'84 VF1000F with lower cowling

'84 VF1000 with aftermarket lower cowling


16" front wheel, 18" rear wheel, silver alloy painted Steel Perimeter (Twin Spar) frame (Similar to GSXR or Honda NS500 frame), Single rear shock w/ 2 sided Alloy swingarm, 1/2 upper fairing (that molded into tank covering part of the frame) with chin or belly fairing, chain-driven cams, 4/2 exhaust. The forks had TRAC mechanical anti-dive mechanisms. Since it was only slightly faster than the 750 and since it was taller and carried it's weight higher, it was not the most successful product of the VF exercise for Honda. The (U.S.) color was mostly blue (sides of bike) with a red stripe and white (on top of tank and fairing), black seat with "1000F" stenciled (in white) on it and white wheels.

Thanks to Richard Simbirski (ordiman@lino.com) for the following drag strip times: 8.156 sec for 1/8 mile, 152 km/hr, (94MPH) top speed, 0.606 sec reaction time.

Thanks to Jim Arnott ( jarnott@ednet1.osl.or.gov) for providing the technical specs for this bike.
