innovative engine architecture and features like
the Interceptor’s V TEC,® these bikes are lightyears ahead of the competition; it’s like pitting an
F-22 Raptor against a World War I biplane.
Powerful, precise, versatile, they showcase

The enthusiast press has been singing the Interceptor’s praises for over two decades, awarding
it dozens of accolades over the years. Here’s why: It’s built for the rider who appreciates refinement and a less
