The Honda motorcycle model and identification numbers are:

Model prefix number, 4th to 7th digit on the VIN
SC58 - Original CBF1000 model 2006 to 2010
SC64 - Facelift model 2010 to 2013

Honda catalogue number, shown on V5 Section D3
CBF1000 - 2006 to 2010 non ABS SC58 models
CBF1000 A - 2006 to 2010 ABS  SC58 models
CBF1000 F - 2010 non ABS SC64 models
CBF1000 FA - 2010 to 2013 ABS models

The model year code, 10th digit of VIN and suffix to catalogue number
Where -6 is for 2006, -7 is for 2007... -A is for 2010, -B is for 2011 etc.

So you have a 2010 SC58 with ABS, a CBF1000 A-A, if that model is then categorised as a 'GT' model I'd expect it to be 'CBF1000 A-A GT'

There's a red '11 one with what appears to be Honda lower fairings, Honda topbox and luggage racks (no actual panniers) for sale on Autotrader, that is also classed as a CBF1000 T-A on the DVLA and another silver '09 also with a fairing, topbox and pannier racks classed as a CBF 1000 AT-9 and there's a 2009 model with lower fairings but no luggage or racks that's shown as a CBF 1000 A-9.

So, maybe the T could perhaps refer to GT, but then, perhaps it all depended who was on keyboard duties at the DVLA when they got registered!

Limited sample admittedly.

Interesting, I think the numbers for the DVLA data input are supplied by the dealers. I don't know why it didn't occur to me before but the Certificate of Conformity, apply for one here, gives the commercial name (Honda catalogue number) at section 0.2.1

That would suggest there was only the CBF1000 and not an official, discrete, GT model, which maybe was a dealer-originated name after the packs in the below were fitted? Part of the sales pitch?!

This https://www.honda.co.uk/content/dam/local/uk/brochures/motorcycles/Accessories/HUK%20MC%20HGA%20CBF1000F%201115.pdf accessory list for the Mk2 mentions Touring and Travel packs (the heated grips shown are the ones fitted to my bike), no mention of lower fairings though. Maybe they were on the accessory list for Mk1's?

I could be wrong (often am) but l believe the GT tag was only put on the Mk2 when it was nearing the end of its production run. To boost sales they added full luggage, fairing lowers, heated grips and a Tom Tom sat nav and called it the GT model and priced it accordingly. The 66 plate that l had was one such bike and as we know that bike would have been laying around in a showroom or a crate from the end of the production run in 2013 until it was registered as a GT model in late 2016. I no longer have it so unable to check what the V5 says.
I don’t recollect there being a Mk1 GT version although full luggage and fairing lowers were available.

Apply for a Certificate of Conformity from Honda the first request is provided free of charge, so if a previous owner has requested one then I'd expect it to be included with the paperwork.

Be interesting to see what 'The Commercial Name' is listed at 0.2.1
