In 2016, the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer launched the Honda VFR800F, a sport-touring motorcycle in its eighth generation that retained the character of the older models with its acclaimed VTEC engine and all the sporty characteristics of an Interceptor in a package with modern technology.

The 2016 model packed the same visual and technical specifications as the 2014 model, which included a single-sided exhaust system like the one used by the fifth-generation model, lighter wheels, and an additional mass reduction that lowered the curb weight by 10 kg (22 lbs).

Also, the new bike featured a traction control system, a new instrument panel, and revised aerodynamic bodywork with LED lighting, while the engine and chassis remained largely unchanged from the previous sixth generation.

For suspension, the bike featured a 43 mm HMAS cartridge-type adjustable telescopic fork on the front and a Pro-Link gas-charged adjustable single shock absorber on the rear for optimum suspension performance and handling.

In the braking department, the bike packed two larger 310 mm floating discs with four-piston calipers on the front wheel and a single 256 mm disc with a dual-piston caliper on the rear wheel for optimum stopping power.

As for the power figures, the 2016 Honda VFR800F Interceptor had its soul brought to life by a 782cc four-stroke four-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that delivered an output power of 104 hp at 10,250 rpm and 75 Nm (55 lb-ft) of torque at 8,500 rpm.
