- 2006 Honda VTX1300R

VTX1300

With three different variations to choose from-the C, S and R models-and more than 30 available accessories, the VTX1300 allows buyers to create their own unique custom style.

 

Features and Benefits

New for 2006

- VTX®1300R and S colors include Bright Blue Metallic, Metallic Silver and Candy Black Cherry joining classic Black.

- VTX1300C colors include Candy Black Cherry, Dark Grey Metallic and Candy Orange joining classic Black.

 

Unique VTX1300R/S Features

- Deeply valanced front and rear fenders, chrome-hooded headlight, broad fuel tank with tank-mounted instruments, semi-swept handlebar and floorboards with heel-and-toe shifter create a classic retro style that sets the VTX apart from the competition.

- Rider comfort is enhanced with comfortable ergonomics and a firmly padded saddle featuring a low, 27.0-inch seat height.

- Staggered dual exhaust pipes produce a pleasing, throaty exhaust note.

- VTX1300S features traditional spoke wheels.

- VTX1300R features retro-style cast wheels.

- Large 140/80-17 front tire gives the S and R models a commanding profile.

- Large under-seat tool tray.

- The black resin seat pan/rear fender located under the seat cowl has been designed to position the battery and electrical components forward for optimum mass centralization.

 

Unique VTX1300C Features

- Custom cast wheels give the VTX1300C a performance-custom profile.

- A beefy 170/80-15 rear tire puts the VTX's power to the ground and provides exceptional traction.

- Minimalist-design front and rear fenders complement the VTX's street-rod styling.

- Artfully designed tank-mounted instruments.

- Dual exhaust with shorter pipes for street-rod look.

Engine/Drivetrain

- VTX engine is a 1312cc liquid-cooled 52° V-twin that delivers strong low-end and mid-range torque, with ample power for passing and relaxed cruising.

- Powerplant design features a single-pin crankshaft to accentuate the VTX engine's character.

- Dual two-axis primary counterbalancers minimize harsh engine vibration without eliminating the powerful pulse feeling transmitted by the VTX's traditional V-twin design.

- The engine mounting system uses carefully matched hangers to eliminate unwanted vibration, while preserving the powerful character of the V-twin engine.

- Each three-valve cylinder head features two 31mm intake valves and a large 40mm exhaust valve to produce optimum flow for the incoming air/fuel charge.

- Simple-to-service screw-and-locknut valve clearance adjusters.

- Single 38mm constant-velocity carburetor offers crisp throttle response at all engine speeds.

- Electronic control unit (ECU) provides 3-D ignition maps for each cylinder, creating ideal spark advance settings for superb rideability.

- Coolant-heated carburetor improves rideability and ensures smooth operation in cold conditions.

- Two spark plugs per cylinder for efficient combustion at all engine speeds.

- A unique dry-sump oil system utilizes a closed-crankcase design and places the oil tank inside the gearbox case. The result is a freer-revving engine for improved power, and a lower engine height, allowing optimum rider ergonomics and a low 27.0-inch seat height.

- Custom chromed two-into-two exhaust system produces a deep exhaust note.

- Radiator with cooling fan maintains consistent engine temperature for optimum performance and long engine life.

- Maintenance-free automatic cam-chain tensioners.

- Reliable electric-starter system.

- Sturdy clutch utilizes a rubber clutch-center damper to ensure smooth and quiet shifting.

- Five-speed transmission with carefully selected gear ratios for exciting roll-on performance.

- Shaft final-drive system provides smooth, low-maintenance operation.

- Driven-flange design at the final-drive gear eliminates final-drive noise and wear, and simplifies rear wheel installation.

 

Chassis/Suspension

- Massive tubular steel frame contains the engine's power and gives the VTX a long, low, classic stance.

- Large 41mm extended front fork provides 5.1 inches of plush yet responsive travel.

- Dual chromed rear shocks with five-position preload adjustment feature an advanced internal valve system for a comfortable ride.

- Front disc brake features a twin-piston caliper with a large-diameter 336mm stainless steel rotor. Combined with the rear single-piston caliper and 296mm stainless steel rotor, the brakes provide excellent stopping power.

 

Additional Features

- Specially designed tank-mounted chrome housing features a speedometer, odometer/A&B tripmeter, and indicator lights for the turn signals, high beam, neutral indicator, oil pressure and coolant temperature.

- Electric speedometer with easy-to-read classic numerals uses an electronic speed sensor in the transmission, which eliminates the front-wheel-mounted speedometer cable. This contributes to a clean, uncluttered look.

- Extensive chrome finishing of engine parts includes cylinder-head covers, valve inspection covers, airbox cover, left crankcase cover, clutch cover and left-rear engine cover.

- Distinctive chrome-hooded headlight housing features a powerful, 55W/60W halogen bulb with a computer-designed multi-reflector for superb lighting in all conditions.

- VTX1300C, S and R models feature a stylish chrome tank emblem.

- Handlebar design provides a comfortable, upright riding position.

- Comfortably padded, large-diameter handgrips with polished aluminum handlebar switch housings and triple-clamp assembly.

- 4.8-gallon fuel tank for extended cruising and touring range.

- Reliable 364W alternator.

- Durable, maintenance-free 12-amp-hour battery.

- Large under-seat tool tray.

- Handlebar switches and controls use internationally approved ISO graphic symbols.

- Convenient push-to-cancel turn-signal switch.
