V4 Cruise Missile: 1993 Honda VFR750 Interceptor

The Honda VFR750 never fails to pop up in forum posts and old magazine articles seeking to name the best all-around motorcycle available. Inevitably, there’s some dentist from Portland who chimes in with 43 photos of his immaculate VFR and a long tale about how he’s put 175,000 miles on it from new and only ever changed the oil and tires. It’s a fact of Internet life, and it gets pretty old. But, if you spend any time at all around the bikes, you’ll discover that those Aerostitch-clad Boomers are on to something. These bikes are, quite simply, phenomenal.

1993 Honda VFR750 for sale on eBay

Of course, I am biased. A red ’97 model sits in my garage, and I sought it out after reading too many dentists telling me how awesome it was. They were right. The gear driven cams make a gorgeous whine on top of the small-block lope of the V4, the power is electric and the handling, while not exactly sprightly, is impressive for something so large and perfectly stable.

This 1993 Honda VFR750 appears to have been babied by one of the aforementioned healthcare professionals, and shows very nicely in white. The way the single-sided swingarm shows off that magnificently ’90s rear wheel is enough to give you visions of Joey Dunlop. With 15,000 original miles, a next to new set of tires and new spark plugs, battery and fuel filter, there is no reason this thing shouldn’t be down for a cross-country road trip tomorrow.

From the eBay listing:

Up for sale is my VERY clean VFR-750. Ultra low miles, adult owned and maintained. Never ridden in the rain, always garage kept on a battery tender when not riding. Has 480 miles on a new set of Michelin Pilots, new spark plugs, new fuel filter, battery is 1 year old, carbs were cleaned and sync’d, K & N air filter, gutted Yoshimura slip on muffler. Always washed after every ride, oil and filter changed every 1,000 miles using Honda oil and filter.

With a hollowed-out Yosh pipe, this thing will make your neighbors hate you, but how could they ever hate this bike?

  • I don’t think so; the exhaust is different, and the front wheel and brakes have been changed.

  • My buddy has a Red one, 50K miles on it, ridden hard and never let him down until the end. He put 20K miles on it one year, rode it 120 Miles round trip to work from Early March until he almost crashed it in the snow in November.

  • Love the white 93’s, great bikes

  • Ah, the Fridigaire of motorcycles! As a big time VFR enthusiast, I loved my ’86, put a ton of miles on it and even roadraced it a bit, and still think it was the best “sportbike” of the VFR series outside of the RC30. They went the sport touring route with subsequent versions and got heavier and slower until the 800 came out. Great street bikes yes but as a sportbike enthusiast they lost their luster to me anyway.

    Regardless though, that gear drive V4 sounds incredible with a pipe and it’s rare to see one with such low miles given these were made to go touring.
