Honda Interceptor description
2002 Honda VFR800 Interceptor with unquestionably low miles, roughly 12750 to be precise. But it gets better.
The bike is clean, very clean. In fact the only blemish I have found is a scuff by the seat from me not hiking my leg up far enough getting on the bike. This is clearly pictured. Now you might be asking, “Hey Ethan, (Ethan is my name) this pearl white color is not factory for your year model, what gives?” Well truth be told, I had the factory oem fairings and gas tank repainted to the factory tri coat pearl white found on VFRs post 2006 because I love the clean white look, not because this bike is a crash victim. (I have paint code)
When I did the paint, I took the opportunity to update the signals. So you might notice that this 02 has the tail lamps and front turn signals from an 06, which are clear with new bulbs. Speaking of bulbs, the headlights are still halogen, but have been upgraded to a higher lumen output build that appears a crisp white color, which in my opinion really completes the look. Pulling this all together is a set of White LED underglow lights. All of which are hidden on interior of fairing, wiring is hidden, and comes with a wireless remote. The windscreen was tinted during the repaint with a “crackle” effect. It is extremely subtle, and is only noticeable in certain lights. I thought this was a cool custom touch.
Now mechanically the bike is superb. Fresh oil back in march, Honda spec with a Honda factory oil filter (roughly 100 miles on this oil). The engine coolant is new factory OEM, and was replaced at 10k miles. It has new EBC performance brake pads, less than 20 miles on them, which match the BRAND NEW Metzler Roadtec Z6 tires installed at the same time. New battery as of last summer and it was maintained on a charger all winter. The handle bars are converti-bar clip-ons, allowing for a very large amount of rider position customization very quickly. These have gel grips installed, and aftermarket folding and adjustable levers that are black on silver. The exhaust is also tastefully upgraded to a scorpion system. While louder then stock, I would not call it offensive of overtly loud. It has custom standoffs on the outboard sides of the cans, which protect the Nelson-Rig soft bags from the heat, which are also included in this sale. I will also include the factory tools that adjust the chain and rear shock. I can also supply a factory service manual with the bike if requested. According to the service intervals, the bike is good to go until 15,000 miles without any further maintenance. All recalls are up to date and have the updated VIN label to show it.
Now all this being said, there are signs of wear for a bike that is nearly 15 years old. The dash panel integration plastics don’t line up great anymore (see pics), and the gas cap has some scuffing. Under the locking cover the gas tank is still the factory red, since my paint shop stated that new paint would have trouble sticking in that area. You only see this when you fill it. The way I have adjusted the clip-ons does not allow for a full lock-to-lock turn. You could adjust them to your preference with only an Allen key.
So I know you will also ask, “Ethan, why are you selling this bike if there is nothing really wrong. This seems too good to be true” Well fact is I am moving on in life. I find myself only looking at this bike, not riding it and that’s a shame. I want to get a new car and selling this gets me space and a down payment. I have a clean and clear title in hand.Bike is for sale locally in Detroit.

The Pata Honda racing team announced it has re-signed Jonathan Rea and Leon Haslam to compete in the 2014 World Superbike Championship. It’s been a disappointing season for both rider, thanks in large part to injuries. Rea is currently on the shelf with a fractured femur sustained in a crash at Nurburgring while Haslam also missed several rounds earlier in the season because of a broken leg.Tue, 11 Mar 2014
