May Need a Gen 8 Now

Recommended Posts

I didn't think I would want to replace my 07 Interceptor anytime soon but then Honda had to go and paint the 2019 Interceptor red, white and blue.

As far as I can tell this is a Japan only model and seriously doubt it will make it's way to the USA.

 

You can view the link to Honda of Japan here if you are curious:

Japan only market so I believe.

The only part I don't like about it are the white wheels, always thought they looked like plastic and cheapen the overall look of the bike.  If they were a brushed aluminum it would be near perfect to me.

 

And since I'm being picky, something needs to be done with the exhaust, never understood why manufacturer's make single-sided swingarms and then hang a ginormous exhaust muffler in front of it.

Doctor says there is no cure...  Just need to manage symptoms.

You're forgetting the algorithm by which you calculate the number of bikes you should have.

 

N+1 where N=the number of bikes you currently possess.

So if I pick up an 8th gen, where can I get those fairings? Can we order them here in the US?

looks like the forks are silver instead of bronze too. That is a great looking bike.

forks were never bronze, 14-16 the fork lowers were black forks with a silver base, in 2017 to current, honda swapped the 2 colors and made them silver with a black base. of course here in the US we only got the 14-15 so any vfr800f you see in the US will have the black fork lowers with a silver base.

Thanks guys. Is it possible to order the Japanese parts from here in the states, or won’t Honda even sell the parts over here?

If you have the part numbers you could order them.  Alternately order them from Japan several decen5 bike shops there.
