Sporty by DNA, comfortable by design, the 2008 Honda Interceptor VFR800FI is a nifty sport-touring machine for those who like canyon carving but are not willing to make too much of a compromise as far as comfort is concerned. The VTEC V4 engine is a marvelous piece of engineering, adapting itself to your riding.

under 6400 rpm, it uses only 2 valves per cylinder. Lay a heavier hand on the throttle and the other 2 become active, for a blast of power which will put a dumb smile on your face. Add in the Pro Arm rear suspension, linked brakes and light aluminium frame and chassis, together with race-bred bodywork aerodynamics, and prepare for an exhilarating experience aboard the Interceptor VFR800FI.
