Engine/Drivetrain

– Engine is a 1795cc liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin that hammers out immense power–106 bhp at 5000 rpm and 120 lb./ft. of torque at 3500 rpm.

– V-twin engine features 4-inch cylinder bores and the largest connecting rods and cylinders Honda has ever made.

– Offset dual-pin crankshaft with two primary-shaft-mounted balance weights allows a high-performance engine design while eliminating harsh engine vibration. The result: muscular power across a broad rpm range for unequaled acceleration and roll-on performance.

– The 41.4-pound forged-steel crankshaft uses bolt-on weights, reducing crankcase width nearly 2 inches and reducing crankshaft weight 8.8 pounds compared to a conventional one-piece design.

– The engine mounting system uses carefully matched hangers and rubber mounts to eliminate unwanted vibration, while preserving the powerful character of the engine’s V-twin design.

– Each three-valve cylinder head features two large 36mm intake valves and a huge 45mm exhaust valve to produce optimum flow for the air/fuel charge.

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

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

– 4.5-liter airbox supplies a large volume of cool, clean air to the engine.

– Advanced high-pressure programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI) features 42mm-diameter throttle bodies delivering air to two specially designed Denso 50-psi high-pressure fuel injectors. Fuel is delivered through 12 nozzle holes in each injector, producing an atomized fuel mixture that is highly combustible for maximum efficiency and power.

– ECU provides individual digital 3-D fuel-injection and ignition maps for each cylinder, creating ideal fuel mixture and spark advance settings for superb rideability.

– A unique dry-sump oiling 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 27.4-inch seat height.

– High-capacity 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.

– Primary-drive gear uses a cam-type damper to minimize powertrain lash.

– Sturdy, maintenance-free eight-plate hydraulic clutch with clutch-center damper ensures smooth gear shifting.

– Five-speed transmission with carefully selected gear ratios for relaxed cruising and 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, muscular stance.

– Large 45mm inverted front fork provides 5.1 inches of plush yet responsive wheel travel.

– Ribbed-design, chromed rear shocks with hairline satin-brushed top mounts have 3.9 inches of wheel travel and feature an advanced internal valve system for a comfortable ride.

– The VTX’s braking system features two three-piston front calipers and a single twin-piston rear caliper. Rider application of the front brake lever activates the two outer pistons of the front calipers. Application of the rear brake pedal activates the two pistons of the rear caliper and the center pistons of the front calipers. When only the rear brake pedal is used, an inline delay valve smooths application of the front caliper center pistons.

 

Additional Features

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

– Tank-mounted chrome nacelle houses the fuel cap, tripmeter/odometer reset and indicator/ warning lights for the turn signals, high beam, neutral indicator, low fuel level, oil pressure, coolant temperature and fuel injection.

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

– Spec 1 features silver finish on crankcases and cylinders; Spec 2 has a satin-black finish with milled fin edges that completes the custom look.

– Large, distinctive speedometer with easy-to-read numerals.

– Comfortably padded, large-diameter handgrips with smooth cast (Spec 1) or polished (Spec 2 ) aluminum handlebar switch-housings and triple-clamp assembly.

– Reliable 300-watt alternator.

– Durable, maintenance-free battery.

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

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

– Transferable one-year unlimited-mileage limited warranty; extended coverage available with a Honda Protection Plan.

– Assembled in Marysville, Ohio.

– Purchase of a new, previously unregistered Honda unit by an individual retail user in the United States qualifies the owner for a one-year complimentary membership in the Honda Rider’s Club of America® (HRCA®). Benefits include roadside assistance, online access to the Honda Common Service Manual, six issues of the bimonthly Honda Red Rider™ magazine, travel discounts, trip routing and MSF reimbursement, plus access to the HRCA Web site (www.hrca.honda.com). For details on the HRCA, dealers should call (310) 783-3958, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time.
