2015 Honda Stateline ABS VT1300CRA Review

2015 Honda Stateline ABS VT1300CRA on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Meet The Modern Custom with ABS…

Picture yourself on the open road… your long, low mount cantering obediently beneath you, while the throbbing of its massive V-Twin engine soothes your cares away; this is the Stateline experience. And when you finally pull into some town on the other side of the Province, the flowing lines and graceful style will ensure you get more than your fair share of attention. But the Stateline’s charm doesn’t end there; standard linked ABS brakes help you keep your cool in difficult conditions.

People ride cruisers for two big reasons: the way they work, and the way they look. Around town and on the road, the relaxed, stretched-out cruiser style is not only comfortable, but it makes sense too. And the way they look—cruisers turn heads everywhere, even when they’re parked. That’s especially true of the Honda Stateline. With its stretched lines and progressive styling, it really stands out. With its 1312cc V-twin engine, shaft final drive, disc brakes and fuel injection, it’s as modern and trouble-free as any Honda out there, and you know how good that feels.

You see a lot of cruisers out there that have too much junk hung all over them. Not the Stateline. Its streamlined good looks really set it apart. And the way it rides? That puts it even further ahead of the pack.

A Cruiser Apart


Plenty of cruisers sacrifice function and comfort for the way they look. Not the Honda Stateline. Like every Honda motorcycle, the Stateline is first and foremost a machine built for riders who love to ride. Superior engineering, flawless fit and finish, and quality parts through and through all add up to a machine that stands apart. Plenty of bikes look good sitting in the garage. The Stateline looks better and better the more and more you ride.



Options & Pricing

With its head-turning styling and brawny 1312cc V-twin powerplant, one might think that a single Stateline model was plenty to go around. But guess what? The good news is that you have two versions of the Stateline to choose from: our standard (and we hesitate to call anything about this machine “standard”) model and an anti-lock brake-equipped Stateline ABS.

Stateline ABS
•1312cc liquid-cooled 52° V-twin engine
•Color-matched frame
•Anti-lock braking system

 

 

 

2015 Honda Stateline ABS VT1300CRA www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

•1,312 cc liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin delivers strong low-end and midrange torque, with ample power for passing and relaxed cruising.
•Dual two-axis primary counterbalancers help to minimize harsh engine vibration without eliminating the powerful pulses transmitted by the traditional V-twin design.
•Electronic control unit (ECU) provides 3-D ignition maps for each cylinder, creating ideal spark advance settings for superb rideability and efficiency.
•A long wheelbase accentuates the Stateline’s stretched look and allows an ultra-low 680 mm (26.8 in.) seat height.

It’s All About the Engine.

Fuel-injected and featuring three valves per cylinder, the Stateline’s mighty 1312cc 52-degree V-twin is the perfect fusion of traditional layout and modern engineering.


Less Is More.

Everything about the Stateline is tastefully done, with a streamlined spin. Case in point: Check out the tank-mounted speedometer, nestled inside a gorgeous, specially designed chrome housing.


Stopping Power.

The Stateline features a 336mm front and a 296mm rear-disc brake and the option of Honda’s Anti-lock Brake System. That makes for powerful, sure stops. Because you never know what the open road is going to throw at you


 

 

2015 Honda Stateline ABS VT1300CRA www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Five-Spoke Cast Wheels

Silver-finish five-spoke wheels never go out of true, are easy to keep clean and just plain look right on a sharp, contemporary cruiser like the Stateline.

Front- and Rear-Disc Brakes (Optional ABS)

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.

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.

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.

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.

Front- and Rear-Disc Brakes (Optional ABS)

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.

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.
