My memory is faulty, but I thought the 1st-Gen 'ceptors all had chain-driven cams. So I checked out Cycle World's informative and entertaining "Honda VFR History" web article. Turns out the '84 VF1000R was the first of the VF series to get gear-driven cams. Didn't realize they got gear-drive that early, I thought it was around '86...

The only 'ceptor I've ever ridden was a 700, and it was fun. I've always wanted to ride a 500 though, just to see what all the hype was about back in the mid-80's. That little bike was supposed to be a real sweetheart in the twisties.
