    DESCRIPTION
    The "Miniceptor" as it is affectionately called ran basically unchanged (except for graphics) until replaced by the CBR600 Hurricane in '87. Like the original '83 VFR750, it sported a 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 with chin or belly fairing, chain driven cams, 4/2 exhaust.
    A great little bike, it begged to be ridden hard. You did not "feel" fast on this bike then you would look down at the speedometer and either impress/scare yourself at your corner speeds.

    The '86 VF500F has the Anti-Dive mechanisms too, right? Or perhaps the bike I just recently picked up, the PO installed VFR750 forks. I see no mention of the anti-dive in the specs above, which is what i am asking. thanks
