2011 Honda Stateline VT1300CR
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 and that classic big Vee power pulse, and you have a machine that’s the perfect choice for cruising-anytime you want.
Long and low, with a no-nonsense attitude and the performance to back it up. The Honda VT1300CRA Stateline is a motorcycle that grabs your attention and won’t let go. Its all-new chassis includes an aggressively raked front end that looks radical, yet handles with the composure you’d expect from a Honda cruiser. The 1,312 cc V-twin engine uses Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) for crisp throttle response, and other high-tech features such as three-valve cylinder heads and two spark plugs per cylinder help to produce the wide, strong powerband that makes riding a big cruiser so much fun.
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.
2011 Honda Stateline VT1300CR Features and Benefits
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.
Cruise the boulevard or tour in style with our new 24 liter leather saddlebags, braided lines, chrome passenger backrest and carrier, passenger floorboards and engine guard. 24 Honda Genuine Accessories in all.
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.
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.
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.
Shaft Final Drive: The shaft final drive is quiet, clean, and has been uniquely integrated into the overall design.
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 Statelines 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: Defining the Essence of Cruising
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 rolling chassis and overall lines bring a fresh look to the class. A wider seat with more lean-back angle and a long, sweeping, wider handlebar with more upright and relaxed riding stance-the perfect way to capture that traditional cruiser experience. The blacked-out engine treatment is another classy styling touch that helps make the Stateline its own machine. Add to that the deep throaty rumble of a big 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. MSRP $11,799
– Sabre: Ride the Mean Streets
Sometimes you just want to wear your aggression on your sleeve, and that’s why the Sabre is ready to do your talking for you. The Sabre’s muscular pro-street style provides a classic ride, with ergonomics to match. The seat and handlebar yield a forward leaning position for an aggressive riding stance-a perfect match to the Sabre’s custom cool persona. Also, a 21-inch front wheel and 15-inch rear wheel add to the bike’s bare-knuckle handsome looks. Add an impressive 1312cc V-twin engine complete with Honda’s sophisticated Programmed Fuel Injection, and you’ll be rolling down the meanest streets with a bike that’s as tough as it looks: the 2011 Sabre. MSRP $11,899
– Shadow Aero: Incomparable Looks, Unbeatable Value
Back for 2011 as a proven favorite, the Shadow Aero serves as a most satisfying ride for a wide range of enthusiasts. Factor in the Shadow Aero’s classic retro styling, low seat height, power-packed V-twin engine now with sophisticated Programmed Fuel Injection-all at a price that’s just right for today’s budgets-and you have the makings of a winner. MSRP $7999
– NT700VA ABS: Journey to the Far Reaches of Your Imagination
If you’re looking for a touring machine that’s fun to ride and ready to carry you to work and play seven days a week, look no further than the NT700V. Fully outfitted and ready to roll with ABS technology, the NT700V can turn your daily commute into riding bliss and then carry you off on that weekend adventure. With a fairing, interlinked saddlebags and a strong 680cc V-twin engine, the NT700V is ready for any journey you can dream up. MSRP TBD
