Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 1998 Honda VFR800. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

In a market segment characterized by extremes, Honda’s VFR has always trod the middle ground––never the fastest, or the lightest, or the quickest way around a racetrack, but always a standout, biased more toward balance than bravado, a sportbike for the real world.” That’s how Motorcyclist magazine introduces Honda’s legendary Interceptor in this timeline of the model.

As noted by MCN, many Honda fans think that the fifth generation “is the best version of the best motorcycle ever built,” calling it a “consumate all-rounder that looks great and goes better whether you’re on a track day, commuting or heading on a two week holiday with pillion and luggage.” It’s an excellent combination of old and new, blending the classic feeling we all love with modern conveniences such as fuel injection, modern tire sizes, digital instrumentation, and cartridge forks.

A big change was the linked Combined Braking System (CBS) with three piston calipers – the two outer pistons on the front calipers were controlled by the front brake lever while the central piston was controlled by the rear brake lever (flip that for the rear calipers).

But the heart of the fifth generation VFR (which was introduced in 1998) was the V-4 engine which produced 110 horsepower and 59 lb-ft of torque, a motor that was known for being flexible and reliable.

Manufactured in January of 1998, this example is VIN: JH2RC4619WM000433.

The odometer shows 46,724 miles.
