Honda VFR800

The Honda VFR800, also known as the Interceptor, is a motorcycle introduced by Honda in 1998. It is a successor to the VFR750F (1986–1997), which was preceded by the VF750.

From its first sales in 1986, the VFR750F scored highly on many press reviews. While it was originally intended to be a sports bike, the introduction of lighter competitors (including the nearly 30 kg/66 lb lighter GSX-R750) prompted Honda in 1990 to transition the VFR into a mid-sized sport touring bike, a category of which the VFR became the de facto benchmark. However, by 1997, Triumph and Ducati presented Honda with significant sports-touring competition, so Honda responded with a redesigned VFR800 in 1998.
