As cool and convenient the enhancements of the 2001 VFR800 were, there still was one thing to make the bike better: ABS. Honda equipped the Interceptor with anti-locking brakes to add even more versatility to the already compliant linked-braking system (LBS).

Riders can now stop in a shorter distance in emergency situations, while braking on difficult, slippery surfaces is safer, with the added stability provides by the ABS. As for the rest, the VFR800A Interceptor ABS retains all the awesome character of the base model.
