interceptor

i love my new bike... it is the shiznit..... i loved my 919 but if i had test rode a interceptor before the 919 i think i would have bought it instead....

it handles like a dream.. lay it over in a curve and it tracks like a train.... the power is linear and strong... it gets great gas mileage... and it is uber comfortable... thick well padded seat... the windscreen is ample and does its job... my only complaints would be a lot of engine heat at red lights *(its south florida what you expect except heat)... and i have to get used to a hydraulic clutch again...

i have to say this is probably the best bike i have ever had the privilege of owning and riding ... i just wish i had bought it a year ago....

I rode one of the Asphalt Black ones, really thought it looked cool but it was underpowered when compared to the 919.

They are OK, the VTEK is cool when it kicks in, but the 919 is quicker, faster, better looking, less expensive to maintain, easier to work on, lighter -

Anyway, the valve adjustment it a total nightmare on the VRF800's - I'd suggest selling the bike before you get it done.

We've done then on machines with 32,000 miles on them and all the valves were still within spec, which is good, because if we would of had to adjust them, the owners would probably need to schmooze Obama for some of that stimilus money......

Now, I do really like the Viffer's, the sound they make is awesome, but they just do not do enough to trip my trigger to cause me to want one.

I did almost, almost consider that anniversary model though, it sure looked good - but that stealthy all black one, oh my......

Anyway, where are the pictures?

I'll find some of my buddies VFR - it's really nice, he's polished almost everything.

And the decals on the side, they ROCK

Ah - here it is!

He made those decals -

Oh yeah, while on the CB750 drag bike, we toyed around a bit.



That VFR - well, no comparison to my drag bike.



Left me for dead, like I was a boat anchor.......

lighter yes.... better looking no.... quicker a touch... faster no (the vfr will smoke it on top end)...

the comfort on the vfr puts the 919 to shame....

Glad to hear it's the schnizz.. I have always wanted one. Met up with a friend once on a local ferry crossing (no not fairy crossing) and we switched bikes and rode 40 miles back into town. I was amazed at how linear and smooth it was. I also fumbled with the clutch a bit but got used to it quickly. It also felt quite heavy in the slow moments, but I chalked that up to getting used to it.

On the other hand, the friend immediately wanted to get a 9'er. He never did as new children put a stop to that, but it made me chuckle.

Guess, I need to get off my lazy ass and start looking again.

Regardless, congrats on the new purchase..

Brian--what does the VTEC feel like when it kicks in? I've heard it makes the throttle feel a bit weird...

If the interceptor is really as comfortable as he says, he would ride it.

vtec feels like a tame 2 stroke IMO i would have a 25th right now too had i been able to afford the insurance. i got a quote for 5k a year, my 9er is 1200 peryear. i take that extra money and do mods to the bike

That data is very interesting! We all experience the excitement of two-lane highway passing a slow RV and can appreciate the 4s pass statistic, or for Barton 6s. UJM, Did they quote the 60-0 stats?

not that bad i have done them before, first one is ticky but after you have done one you are good to go,and really adjusting the valves would not be all that much hard then checking them on the viffer you must pull the cams out anyways to use the vtec tool. i dont see the big seal in changing them if you are aready there to check them.

Probably why Cycle World named it best bike ever built 10 years in a row. I have always wanted and WILL always want a V4 bike. Best motor ever in my opinion. Vtwin torque with inline power, and that sound. Now if I could get a RC212V motor in my 919....

Not on that comparison.

The 919 destroys the VFR in real world side by side performance comarisons.

The VFR is a nice machine, it is a "Sport TOURING" bike, not a wickedly quick and agile machine with the stunning good looks of a 919.....

The Viffer is a great machine, no question, and I hope Brain is happy with it for a long time.

The anniversary edition, it is awesome!

Me, I'm still waiting for pictures, this could all be a hoax!

A 919 is a naked commuter... not a sport bike, not a naked sport bike, etc...

The funny part is Barton has a 919, makes a claim about power... He is called out and everyone from the 919 side says it must be true and Barton knows what he is talking about.
Barton then buys and intercepter and makes a back to back comparison and suddenly, he must be mistaken, he muist be wrong....

Funny, he has owned both, but other people who haven't. people seem to know more...

i have not owned both well i did have a 700 but not the same. but i have had seat time on the viffer, let me tell you had the insurance not been so bad i would have the
25th vfr had the loan approved and everything, then check the insurance, looked over at the 919 and said how bout that one. maybe in a year or 2 i will have both (once i turn 25 and drop insurance down a little)

Very cool new ride Brian, who cares how it compares to the 919, totally different machines. Like comparing my FJR to my 919, sure each does something better than the other but they're so totally different that you can't really make a valid side by side comparison.

I'm curious about the comfort level, tell us more about the seat, handlebars, and pegs, and the relationship between the three.

I've always thought those were beautiful bikes, they turn my head when I see one on the road.

I agree with the apples to oranges thing.

That being said I think that a VFR smokes a 919 in the looks department. It's a nice combo of Jap-tech and Euro-exotic styling. And BTW does EVERYTHING well.

You got some pipes on yours? The noise comin' outta a V-four is one of the sweetest sounds known to man. It sounds like a MotoGP bike for Chrissakes.

In fact that sweet glorious exhaust note is so much cooler than a 919 (or any Inline 4) that I am gonna go youtube it right now.

Wow, I'm shocked by the roll on numbers. The 919 just stomps the VFR in those two catagories. Barton, you better watch out next time you ride with TK.

'02 Honda 919 - She's the only one for me!

The funny part is Barton has a 919, makes a claim about power... He is called out and everyone from the 919 side says it must be true and Barton knows what he is talking about.
Barton then buys and intercepter and makes a back to back comparison and suddenly, he must be mistaken, he muist be wrong....

Funny, he has owned both, but other people who haven't. people seem to know more...
i just think its the same as performance parts...people buy them and say i gained this and that..and we all know ...there a greater chance they lost power..but its loud so it must of gained power...what do you expect someone to say when buying something new ....talking about most people not all...as far as looks ... looks like every full fairing bike made in the last 20 years
....before top speed on the street kicks in the race is over...its something you will hardly ever see if ever....all motorcycles have a speedo error

dont need a bike to ride the fast lane

Exactly... and being able to carry corner speed is huge....
That is why I would lean to a VFR.

if a bike carries more speed through the corner, the race never happens on the straights anyway.
