The Honda VF500F (badged as "Interceptor" for the US and Canada market) is a 498 cc displacement sport motorcycle manufactured from 1984 to 1986. It is widely regarded as one of the finest handling motorcycles of the 1980s.
It was part of Honda's family of first generation V4 engine motorcycles (Interceptor - VF400F VF500F VF700F VF750F VF1000F). The VF500F was derived from the Japanese market VF400F (400 cc engine). It is not simply an overbored and/or overstroked version of the VF400F.
The engine as well as the cycle are entirely specific, with very few common parts. The Honda VF500 engine was also used almost entirely unchanged in the Magna V30 standard motorcycle during the same two years.
The VF500F was produced for the North American and European markets. The European market version also had a VF500F2 model which utilized a full fairing, whereas the VF500F had an upper half fairing with a lower cowl in front of the motor.
The VF500F utilized a skeleton square tubular steel frame with conventional forks and a rear mono-spring/damper suspension using a cast aluminum swingarm. It used a 16-inch front wheel with a 100/90-16 tire for reduced rotational inertia to make steering easier. The rear wheel is 18-inch with a 110/90-18 tire.
It was replaced by the CBR600F "Hurricane" motorcycle in 1987.

Words fail me. Presumably, if your pockets are deep enough to buy all the engine parts from Kitaco (how about a DOHC four-valve head?), this sort of performance is within the reach of every C90 Honda owner. All those cabbies doing their 'knowledge' would make mincemeat of London traffic with this sort of acceleration.Thu, 30 Sep 2010
Pull out the slippers and plant yourself in front of a log fire and let Mick Grant talk you through his racing career. With a foreword from our Whit', the book details Granty's life from his Yorkshire roots through to all of his seven TT wins and the intense rivalry with Barry Sheene in the 1970s. Don't judge the book by it's cover, it's not a disaster like the out-of-focus oval-pistoned Honda NR500 but a good read.Thu, 01 Sep 2011
Loris Capirossi announced he will retire at the end of the 2011 MotoGP season, closing off a quarter century of racing including 22 years at the Grand Prix level and three World Championships. “It’s an important moment in my career, and the decision I made has come about after a lot of reflection,” says Capriossi. “I’m happy that after 25 years, of which 22 were in the world championship, I’m at a point where I can still have a smile on my lips as I part ways, even if it’s difficult to think that I won’t be riding a bike next year.” The announcement was made during a press conference at Misano for the upcoming San Marino Grand Prix, the final Italian stop of the 2011 season.
