2013 Honda Stateline ABS VT1300CRA Review
2013 Honda Stateline ABS VT1300CRA
Grabs your attention…and never lets go…
It’s only natural to fixate on things of beauty, so don’t panic if you catch yourself gaping the first time you lay eyes on the Stateline. Maybe it’s the classic lines and progressive retro-styling. Or the blacked-out cylinder fins surrounding that massive 1312cc V-twin. Or perhaps it’s the machine’s long, low-slung profile, perfectly accented with swept-back bars atop raked-out forks and full-size fenders spooning fat front and rear tires.
Or maybe it’s simply the combination of all these things. True beauty can be hard to define. It’s even harder when, like here, it leaves you speechless.
Featuring long, low lines that embody what cruising is all about, the Stateline® blends two worlds of motorcycling style: traditional looks plus progressive elements. The deeply valanced fenders arc downward in classic retro style, yet the rolling chassis and overall lines bring a fresh look to the class. Add to that the deep rumble of a big V-twin engine and that classic big Vee power pulse, and you have a machine that’s the perfect choice for cruising—anytime you want.

2013 Honda Stateline ABS VT1300CRA Features and Benefits
Front and Rear Disc Brakes – A single 336mm disc/twin-piston caliper unit up front and 296mm disc/single-piston caliper setup in back ensure the Stateline can reel itself in when needed.
Five-Spoke Cast Wheels – Silver-finish five-spoke wheels never go out of style, are easy to keep clean, and just plain look right on a sharp, contemporary cruiser like the Stateline.
Retro-Progressive Styling – Like its Sabre and Fury cousins, the Stateline, with its chopped dragster look, beefy V-twin and long, neo-design fenders, is one of the most authentic, radically styled custom motorcycles that Honda has ever produced.
Tank-mounted Instruments – Part of the Stateline’s super-clean look comes from mounting the instruments in a streamlined, modern tank nacelle. It completely opens up the handlebar area, yet still gives you all the information you need.
Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) – Forget about fiddling with a choke—the Stateline’s fuel injection system means no-hassle startups on cold mornings or at high altitudes, and optimal performance in any condition.
1312cc V-twin Engine – Powerful 1312cc, 52-degree V-twin engine with a single-pin crankshaft and dual balancers has plenty of torque, and the feel only a V-twin can deliver.
hree-Valve Dual-Plug Combustion Chamber
2-into-2 Exhaust System – The Stateline’s 1312cc V-twin engine features a beautiful two-into-two exhaust system. It not only looks great, but it sounds even better.
Wide, Low-Profile Tires – Big, fat, and bad to the bone, the Stateline’s wide, low tires do more than just look good—they are the basis for the Stateline’s excellent handling—exactly what you’d expect from a Honda cruiser.
Shaft Final Drive – The shaft final drive is quiet, clean, and has been uniquely integrated into the overall design.
Low-Slung Saddle – Measuring in at an ultralow 26.7 inches, the Stateline’s wide, one-piece, deep-dish seat not only beefs up the comfort level, but the classic styling as well.
Full Valanced Fenders – Those long, full-coverage fenders with their deep side valances are purely modern, but pay tribute to some of the classic cruisers of old. That combination of classic and new is what the Stateline is all about.
