With experience comes wisdom. Sure, fluorescent-colored breakfast cereal might be fun when you’re a kid, but as you learn more, you start eating smarter. Same with your motorcycles. Loud, flashy bikes that try to grab your attention with outrageous styling, but do not turn or stop well? Seating positions that would give a chiropractor nightmares? Pass. The experienced rider looks for a machine that works with him or her. That offers plenty of performance, that’s comfortable to ride—even at a brisk pace.
For generations, that’s meant Honda®’s Interceptor®, a bike that performs as well in the curves as it does on the open road. The Interceptor®'s 782cc V-4 VTEC engine with fuel-injection mapping for better low-end torque feel. It includes adjustable seat height to better fit a range of riders, front-mount radiator for a slimmer profile, radial-mount front brakes, and all-side muffler, wheels and Pro-Arm® swingarm. There’s even a Deluxe model for 2015 with features like traction control, anti-lock brakes, self-cancelling turn signals, a centerstand and heated grips.
Features May Include:
The Interceptor®’s instruments include a digital speedometer, analog tachometer, gear-position indicator, miles-per-gallon readout, ambient air temperature gauge and a clock.
- Radial-Mount Front Brakes
The Interceptor® uses radial-mounted monobloc front-brake calipers. This construction makes the caliper stiffer, and that means you get better brake feel for more linear, powerful stopping.
- Twin-Spar Aluminum Chassis
The foundation for the Interceptor®’s stellar, tack-sharp handling, the twin-spar all-aluminum design is light and strong.
Always a technology showcase, the Interceptor®’s engine uses digital fuel injection that is specially mapped to work with the VTEC engine two-valve/four-valve operation to increase both low-end torque and high-RPM horsepower.
Drawing on 30 years of V-4 technology and racing success, Honda® designers gave the Interceptor® one of our most advanced streetbike engines ever: a fuel-injected, liquid-cooled 782cc V-4 brimming with low-end torque.
Honda®’s Pro Arm® single-sided swingarm is a proven design, and the Interceptor®’s swingarm is lighter and mounts the chain and brake disc on one side for easier wheel servicing and tire changes. It looks better too!
Streamlined and compact, the muffler offers a significant weight reduction from previous designs.
Adjustable from 31.8 inches to 31.0 inches, the Interceptor®’s seat fits a wider variety of riders.
Bright, clear and long lasting, an LED tail light is the way to go with a bike as modern as the Interceptor®.
