Top Speed: 150mph (240 km/h)

In March 1984, Honda introduced the VF1000R in the European Market. The main motivation behind the creation of VF1000R was that Honda wanted to design a piece that can compete with Daytona 200 and AMA F1 class, having all of the innovative and modern technology that had been used in the AMA F1 class.

But unfortunately this was not to be the case, as the finished bike weighed nearly 600 pounds with half a tank of fuel, almost 85 pounds heavier than the VF1000F model, and for this reason was rarely used in competition, and struggled to be competitive when it was used. It had a 998cc, four stroke, V-four cylinder engine, which can produce the power of 130 HP at 10500 RPM.

Dodge Tomahank 1

Hypothetical Top Speed: 300 mph-420mph

Only nine bikes were built and all of them have been sold. No road test what so ever been published to prove their claim.
