A machine created for those in search of V4 sporty rides, the 2001 VFR800 Interceptor brings all the brawn of the 781cc V-TEC engine which uses 2 valves per cylinder below 7000rpm, and two additional ones as the revs go past this mark. Multiple engine tweaks reduce noise and improve the overall way the mill performs under stressful conditions, adding to the legendary reliability of the Honda bikes.

Transmission gearing was also upgraded , just like the swingarm and the linked braking system. All in all, the 2001 VFR800 Interceptor is a great machine for both commuting and leisure riding.
