Nice find Ben! That is one clean scoot. Better keep that one away from Mike, he has a soft spot for V4 Hondas! I really like the the 14 Aprilia Tuono V4 R. Usually I am not a fan of the newer "naked" bikes. Yamaha's 1st and 2nd generation VMAX is no slouch either.

Thanks Curtis...No worries...I have a thing for Honda V4s myself...1984..1 year only..then redesigned as the VF1000R..(much uglier fully clad in body work..and much less friendly ergos) I like how you can see the stout V4. This is no V65 cruiser...Not yet in the stable..working on that... EDIT...16k orig miles but with many upgraded components...I have to go up to NJ to get it...

More than you suspect. Another V65 sneaked into the stable last week unannounced. That makes three if you count the frame donor.

I have been sport bike curious, so that sweet looking Interceptor could wake up a new urge....better keep an eye on it Ben! Nice find. It's beautiful.

Thanks Mike...My ST1100 is my 3rd..and Now with the VF1000F that will make 4 Hondas i have owned..but not all at once of course..
I know the seller in NJ..Have ridden with him and admired this machine for many yrs.... It has been repainted and powdercoated all black parts...New decal set..IDK where he found that but I'm glad he did... He has another he is keeping for now.....

Thanks Dean..The ergos are more UJM std. upright riding...but I haven't sat on it yet..I would imagine the seat would not bad be but i am old and cranky when it comes to being coddled in comfort..But it isnt an LD machine..so hopefully it is tolerable.....I should be having so much fun riding it that i wouldn't even notice the seat....

Well I'm glad i got this one before anyone else...I'm sure you can find something much more local to you...Logistics with shipping from too far arent the best way to get a bike..So keep your eyes open...they're out there...

Lol. They're a cool bike, none the less.
