2011 Honda Interstate | Quick Look

2011 Honda Motorcycle

Part of Honda’s modernist-influenced custom line, the VT1300C Interstate may share its name with a past edition of the Gold Wing, but it is a full-on cruiser with the basic accouterments of a bagger.

While traditionalists may blanch at the widespread use of plastic from fender to fender, Honda has kept the Interstate’s weight down.

In conjunction with well-calibrated suspension and a smooth motor, it is an easy-handling bike.

Somewhat plain in stock form, Honda has a number of Genuine Accessories that can quickly make its “custom” a bit more custom.
