It would have been a terrible shame if Honda left the amazing Interceptor VFR800FI sport-touring beats without the obvious benefits of ABS brakes. Honda knows that many riders out there are willing to spend some extra bucks and add the stability and peace of mind ABS brakes brings to their bikes. Mixing the already safety-focused Linked Braking System with the anti-lock capabilities resulted in a bike with the same nimble character and sporty stance, but with enhanced safety in times of need.

Basically, taming the mighty VTEC V4 engine has now become easier even when emergency braking is needed to avoid collision or riding off the road. If such safety degree appeals to you, then the Interceptor VFR800FI ABS is the way to go.
