Piggybacking off the success of the race-oriented VF750, the VFR750 Interceptor was Honda’s decision to appeal to the masses with a more approachable roadster. As named on the fairings, the VFR offered gear driven cams, resisting stretching and increasing longevity.

Beyond that, the VFR saw a change in the overall design of the crankshaft, from the a 360-degree found in the original VF750, to a now 180-degree which freed up valuable space in the frame for larger carburetors. This change led to an increase in power as well, with the Interceptor good for 106.05 hp and 53 lb-ft of torque, paired to a DOHC variable transmission. Specs estimated around 10 percent total weight savings across the board, and an increase in the redline – up to 11,000 from a previous 10,500. The new suspension was provided by Showa forks and a Pro-Link single shock in the rear, allowing for a middle-ground of sporty and comfortable handling and road-feel. Stopping the VFR were two floating disc brakes and Nisin calipers, working in conjunction with a rear disc brake.

While not forged, the wheels that the VFR rode on were of Comcast make, and had a nimbler setup of a 16-inch front and 18-inch rear. In total, the VFR was a far cry from the original VF750, and helped bring Honda back into the market of reasonably priced, quality motorcycles.
