State of the Art Power…

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 ABS. 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 ABS. Its streamlined good looks really set it apart. And the way it rides? That puts it even further ahead of the pack.

It’s All About the Engine.

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

Less Is More.

Everything about the Stateline ABS 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 ABS 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.








2016 Honda Stateline ABS Key Features

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.

2016 Honda Stateline ABS Features and Benefits

Engine & Drivetrain

Improved power

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.

Efficient combustion at any speed

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

Excellent rideability & efficiency

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

Strong performance & low emissions

Programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI) contributes to strong engine performance and low emissions.

Easy maintenance

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

Optimum exhaust flow

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

No harsh – all rumble & purr

Dual two-axis primary counterbalancers help to minimize harsh engine vibration without eliminating the powerful pulses transmitted by the traditional V-twin design.

Attractive engine design

Powerplant design features special camshafts and a single-pin crankshaft to accentuate the engine’s character.

Relaxed cruising with passing power

1,312 cc liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin delivers strong low-end and midrange torque, with ample power for passing and relaxed cruising.

Chassis / Suspension

Superb riding comfort

The Stateline’s sleek lines cloak an ingenious single-shock rear suspension system with adjustable rebound damping and five-position spring preload adjustment for superb riding comfort that’s far above the norm for a chopper-style motorcycle.

Ultra-low seat height = Control

A long wheelbase accentuates the Stateline’s stretched look and allows an ultra-low 680 mm (26.8 in.) seat height.

Five-spoke alloys

Five-spoke alloy wheels hold a fat 170-series rear tire paired with a 17-inch front tire.

Designed for excellent visibility

High-mount steering head gives the frame a see-through, open-air look with plenty of breathing room between the tank/upper frame and the front cylinder head.

Combined ABS braking system

Combined Braking System with ABS provides both the operating ease of linked front and rear brakes and the control of an advanced Anti-lock Braking System.

Additional Features

All-day comfort

Wide, retro-styled pullback handlebar offers all day comfort.
