09/05/2007 - Torrance, Calif. - For sport touring with an emphasis on Sport, the Interceptor continues to stand far above all others thanks to its exemplary handling, high-performance VTEC engine and long-range amenities. Features & Benefits New for 2008
New Metallic Silver color
Revolutionary VTEC combines the power characteristics of both two- and four-valve cylinder-head designs. The engine runs on two valves per cylinder below 6400 rpm then switches to four valves per cylinder to deliver significantly stronger low-end and mid-range torque, while maintaining the Interceptor's impressive high-rpm power delivery.
Programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI) (see Technology Section).
Unique Pro Arm® Rear Suspension (see Technology Section)
Pro-Link Rear Suspension (see Technology Section)
Unique NR-style center-up exhaust system incorporates two stainless steel mufflers tucked beneath the Interceptor's tail section.
Large-diameter 43mm Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) cartridge front fork provides enhanced handling under all riding conditions.
Linked Braking System (LBS™) (see Technology Section)
Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) model available (see Technology Section).
Four brilliant multi-reflector headlights employ two centrally positioned H4 low/high beams positioned under two widely spaced H7 high beams for brilliant nighttime illumination.
Compact 781cc DOHC 90-degree V-4 with an oversquare bore and stroke of 72mm x 48mm.
Silent-type cam-chain drive eliminates mechanical gear noise. The system features a set of dual tensioners that maintain optimal pressure and lubrication for the camshaft chains, ensuring quiet operation and long life.
Programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI) (see Technology Section).
Iridium-tip spark plugs are ignited by compact high-energy coil-on-plug spark plug caps that produce a strong, high-voltage spark.
Interceptor engine serves as a stressed member of the pivotless frame, which features specially designed engine mounting bolts tuned to work in harmony with the damping characteristics of the frame.
Aluminum-composite cylinder sleeves are high-pressure-formed from sintered-aluminum powder impregnated with ceramic and graphite. The composite sleeves provide better wear resistance and superior heat dissipation than conventional sleeves.
Cast-aluminum pistons feature LUB-Coat solid lubricant to minimize friction between piston and cylinder wall.
Auto-enriching system is integrated into PGM-FI module, which optimizes the air/fuel mixture on cold starts and eliminates the need for a manual choke.
Solenoid-operated dual air-intake duct design keeps one duct closed during low-speed operation to ensure optimal control of air-intake velocity.
Dual side-mounted radiators maximize cooling efficiency using low-air-pressure areas created by side cowls to draw cooling air through the radiators. During low-speed operation, a thermostat-controlled left-side fan pulls cooling air across the radiator into the fairing to keep hot air away from the rider.
Rugged 125mm-diameter eight-plate clutch offers light weight and high load capacity.
Clutch features an offset outside friction plate for quiet operation when starting from a stop.
Three-phase coil-spring damper in the transmission provides for seamless upshifts.
Triple-box-section twin-spar aluminum frame features a tuned, pivotless design that isolates the engine-mounted swingarm from the frame and contributes to handling comfort.
Unique Pro Arm® Rear Suspension (see Technology Section).
Pro-Link Rear Suspension (see Technology Section).
Linked Braking System (LBS™) (see Technology Section).
The Interceptor's 296mm floating front-brake discs feature a lightweight seven-spoke inner rotor design.
U-section cast-aluminum wheels are light and reduce unsprung weight.
The six-spoke, 3.5-inch-wide front wheel carries a 120/70ZR-17 radial tire. The five-spoke, 5.5-inch rear wheel sports a wide, low-profile 180/55ZR-17 radial tire.
5.8-gallon fuel capacity for excellent sport-touring range.
The Interceptor's sleek, aerodynamic bodywork is functional and beautiful.

Clear turn-signal lenses front and rear provide a high-tech look.
Air flowing through the windscreen's central air vent provides cool air to the rider at low speeds and increases rider comfort at higher speeds.
High-tech instrument display includes electronic tachometer, LCD readouts for speedometer, air temperature, coolant temperature, odometer, two tripmeters and clock.
ACG output of 497 watts.
Detachable seat provides storage for a U-lock and other necessities. (Lock not included.)

Looks like the ST1300 without side bags. They are going to have a harder time differentiating the two. Not unlike the crossover problem they had with the Valkyrie/ST13/Wing a few years back. And that's when the Valkyrie was dropped from the line-up. That big 6 was an awesome motor on that frame.
