Honda Motorcycles has always offered a wide range of motorcycles for its customers to choose from. That has been due to its constant addition of new models and updation of older models over time. Keeping in line with this trend, it has introduced two new motorcycles to its overseas lineup. The new models are 2014 Honda Interceptor and 2014 Honda CB1100.

The Interceptor comes in standard and deluxe variants. The tourer is powered by a liquid cooled, 782cc, V4 engine mated to a close shift six-speed gearbox. The suspension is fork type with spring preload at the front and Pro-Arm single-side swingarm with Pro-Link single shock at the rear. The riding position is upright to provide comfort on long rides. The seat is adjustable and can vary from a height of 31.0 to 31.8 inches. The wheels now get 10-spoke alloys and a single muffler exhaust system improving the style quotient as well as making the bike more lightweight. The kerb weight of the standard version is 529 pounds (240kgs) while the deluxe is slightly heavier at 536 pounds (243kgs). The deluxe model comes loaded with traction control, ABS, self-canceling turn signals, grip heaters and a centerstand for riders.

2014 Honda Interceptor Features and Benefits


Honda's iconic V-4 powerplants have an alluring character all their own, a unique combination of torque, an aggressive rush of power as the tach needle swings up into the meaty part of the powerband, and a certain texture to the engine feel that tells you this could only be a Honda V-4. The new Interceptor® has all of that and more, including a chassis with that special Honda blend of agility and comfort that strikes an ideal balance for all-day rides on your favorite twisting roads. A stout single-side swingarm and radial-mounted front brakes make sport riding especially fun, and a front-mounted radiator gives the Interceptor a slim profile. To ensure long-term comfort, the Interceptor has upright, neutral ergonomics as well as an adjustable seat. This is a sport bike with plenty of emphasis on sport, plus the versatility for commuting, two-up fun rides and long-haul sport touring. The Deluxe model adds ABS, Traction Control, grip heaters, self-canceling turn signals, and a centerstand for riders wanting even more features.

Features and Benefits

Key Features

- Honda-exclusive VTEC engine combines the power characteristics of both two- and four-valve cylinder-head designs. The engine runs on two valves per cylinder at lower engine speeds, then switches to four valves per cylinder in a seamless transition as revs build. This results in stronger low-end and mid-range horsepower and torque while maintaining impressive high-rpm power.
