Not a superbike-class machine, but neither a small one, the 2005 VFR800 Interceptor is one of the perfect ways to enjoy Honda's V4 V-TEC engine in a package boasting increased comfort and highly capable to provide instant gratification in pretty much all scenarios. Usable as a daily commuter and making streaking through slow traffic a breeze, the VFR800 is also a blessing for those who like canyon carving and adrenaline-doused track weekends.

Or get a luggage system and your significant other and head for the interstate: the 2005 VFR800 Interceptor is also a great sporty machine fit for touring and is not at all shy to munch in a couple of thousands of miles during your vacation.
