– 2010 Honda VT1300CRA Stateline ABS
2010 Honda VT1300CRA Stateline ABS
Something old. Something new.
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 all-new rolling chassis and overall lines bring a fresh look to the class. Add to that the deep throaty rumble of a big V-twin engine with Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection and that classic big Vee power pulse, and you have a machine that’s the perfect choice for cruising–any time you want.
Introducing the 2010 Honda Stateline. Call it the perfect fusion of traditional and progressive cruiser design, featuring all the classic cues that make the Fury and Sabre so cool, plus a few twists that are decidedly neo-retro, like deep, long fenders.
The brawny 1312cc liquid-cooled, fuel-injected 52º V-twin is a thing of beauty, too, with smooth, maintenance-free shaft final drive putting all that torque and power to the ground with effortless ease.
See what happens when you build a custom that’s equal parts old school and new. Then look no further than the Stateline.
Pure Style. Pure Power. Pure V-twin.
Classic in design, but thoroughly modern where it counts—inside—the Stateline’s powerful 1312cc, 52º V-twin engine features fuel injection and three valves per cylinder.
Street Smart Style
Pavement-skimming saddle. Raked-out fork. Long, deeply valanced, tire-hugging fenders. All-black frame. On the prowl or standing still, the Stateline is something to behold.
Greater Control=Greater Confidence.
Looking for that added peace of mind while riding in less than ideal conditions? Then the Stateline ABS with optional anti-lock braking might be just the ticket.
