Get Ready To Be The Center Of Attention…
The first time you see it, the Honda Stateline will grab your attention and refuse to let go. Just like it’ll draw everyone’s stares wherever you ride it. Sure, a lot of it has to do with its cool, classic lines and progressive retro styling. Or the blacked-out cylinder fins surrounding that massive 1312cc V-twin. Or the Stateline’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. And you know what? Who cares? Because when a bike looks this cool and works this well, you just want to sit back, start her up. And go riding.
The Stateline’s beauty is undeniable, but sometimes beauty is only skin deep. To make sure the Stateline is as much fun to ride, as it is to look at, it is fitted with a long list of premium touring components. The powerful 1300cc V-twin engine is liquid cooled for durability, features fuel injection for efficiency and includes dual counter-balancers for smooth operation. Not to be outdone, the chassis boasts powerful, linked, ABS brakes, low-maintenance shaft drive and generous, well-controlled suspension travel at both ends. A wide variety of accessories allow you to tailor the Stateline to your particular needs.
The VTX1300CRA Stateline – great looks, great personality.
When your ride looks just right, it feels just right deep down inside. And that’s what the Stateline® is all about—a just-right blend of traditional looks plus some new styling flair to set things off. You can see it in the long, low lines that represent what cruising is all about. At the same time, the Stateline blends two worlds of motorcycling style with its deeply valanced fenders arcing downward in classic retro style, yet the rolling chassis and overall lines bring a fresh look as well. Add to that the deep rumble of a 1312cc 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.
