Honda 1300 V-Twin… Model Lineage


Honda Cruisers

In just a few short years, the Honda family of 1300 V-twin bikes has skyrocketed into custom-genre stardom, proving to be wildly popular among riders all across the USA in all of its forms. Here we take a quick look back at the key model introductions leading up to this latest quartet of 2010 motorcycle models.

2003 Honda VTX1300S

Honda rolls out the brand-new VTX1300S featuring classic cruiser styling, floorboards, traditional spoked wheels, and an all-new 1312cc liquid-cooled V-twin engine and it proves to be an instant hit: by the close of 2003 the sales total is nearly 12,000 units.

2004 Honda VTX1300C

To back up the theory that variety is the spice of life, the VTX1300C joins the VTX1300S, bringing some hot-rod performance-custom swagger to the bike lineup. It, too, proves to be wildly popular, selling more than 11,000 units in its first year.

2005 Honda VTX1300R

The R joins the VTX1300 motorcycle family, bringing the total to three options, and this R-model also sells big in its first year by racking up sales in excess of 8000 units.

2008 Honda VTX1300 Touring

Touring aficionados now get their just reward with the addition of the VTX1300 Touring, a model that comes factory-ready for the long haul motorcycling with windscreen, saddlebags, passenger backrest, and more.

2010 Honda Fury, Sabre, Stateline and Interstate

With the introduction of four new motorcycles within one model year, Honda offers something for cruiser fans everywhere. From the radical wild Fury to the cross-country Interstate–with the Sabre and Stateline in between–there are now brand-new options to fulfill just about everyone’s motorcycling flights of fancy.
