The Little Brother of the Biggest and Baddest Power Cruiser


1300ccs. That and 500 more will get you the meanest mass-produced v-twin power cruiser the world ever saw. But the VTX 1300 Retro was never intended to be so big and powerful. The now beloved 1312cc V-Twin engine developed 74 hp at 5,000 rpm and 123 Nm at 3,000 rpm with a disc brake for each wheel and a shaft drive for the rear one. That is enough for most folks.

Depending on the year, many colors were available, including Black, Illusion Blue, Pearl Orange, Magenta Metallic, Metallic Silver, and Candy Red.

With its deeply valanced fenders, pullback handlebars as well as floorboards and heel-toe shifter for greater long haul comfort, the Honda VTX1300R stands outside the classic days of motorcycling where chrome and impeccable looks were as important as acceleration and comfort only because it's modern style differentiates it from those old bikes, not because it is less refined.
