Honda Stateline Overview

Featuring long, low lines that embody what cruising is all about, the 2010 Honda 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 V-twin power pulse, and you have a machine that’s the perfect choice for cruising–any time you want.

The 2010 Honda Stateline is available with or without ABS in Black and Candy Dark Red. You will find the Stateline in Honda dealerships in February of 2010 and the ABS model will later be available in March. The MSRP for the 2010 Stateline is listed at $11,699.00 while the ABS model is at $12,699.00.
