The Honda VFR750F was a motorcycle manufactured by Honda from 1986 to 1997, initially presented to the press after the 1985 Bol d’Or and officially introduced in 1986. The bike was a combination of sports bike and sports touring categories and was powered by a 750cc V4 engine developed from the VF700 and 750F models.

The bike’s design was an evolution and a complete redesign of the VF700 and 750F models that included several new features, such as a greater power output from 83 to 104 hp, reduced weight, a lower center of gravity, a wider front tire, a slightly shorter wheelbase, and a six-speed transmission instead of the five-speed previously used.

In addition, the bike came equipped from the factory with standard features that included a one-piece dual seat, a blacked-out exhaust system with a chromed muffler, three-spoke cast aluminum wheels, a full fairing with a small windscreen, and a side stand.

The bike featured a unique perimeter frame design that used the engine as a stressed member of the chassis and packed a 37 mm air-assisted telescopic fork with a TRAC Anti-Dive system on the front and a Pro-Link preload-adjustable shock absorber on the rear.

In the braking department, the bike featured two 276 mm discs with two-piston calipers on the front wheel and one 256 mm disc with a dual-piston caliper on the rear wheel for optimum stopping power.

In the performance department, the 1986 Honda VFR750F had its soul brought to life by a 748cc four-stroke four-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that delivered an output power of 106 hp at 10,500 rpm and 66 Nm (49 lb-ft) of torque at 7,500 rpm.
