I’m a sportbike gal at heart but when I about Honda’s newest cruisers, the VT1300 line, I had to them out. There are bikes based on the same The Sabre differs from the two with its muscular styling, front tire and chromed the Stateline and Interstate have engines and a retro look their deeply valanced and wider handlebars.

The Interstate is for touring with a windshield, hard saddlebags, rider and a heel-toe shifter. Since I to put on miles and carry stuff, I toward the Interstate. Curiously—actually, it was to it priced under $13,000; the is the only model not offered an ABS for 2010, however, it is an option for but pushes the price over 13 grand mark.

The Interstate long because it is long, but let the length intimidate. This has a very low center of gravity it a breeze to whip around or when moving it around in lots.

These three Honda came about because of the 2010 Honda Fury, an “custom chopper” with its fork and bare backbone The Fury has a long 71.2-inch and these newer cruisers along in Daddy’s big footsteps their stretched tanks, wheelbases and 33-degree fork That’s long, and when I eyes on the Interstate for the first I raised an eyebrow when I lifting it off the sidestand or going a tight corner.

It turns out my skepticism was unfounded though the Interstate is hefty, tipping the at nearly 700 pounds ready to Weight is carried low, the is narrower than you’d considering its length, and the seat is 26.7 inches off the ground. My are placed wide, hanging large-in-circumference grips (small take note), and my feet are forward on big floorboards.

I’m 5 feet 9.5 and the Interstate has me sitting upright my body curved slightly shoulders relaxed and arms out I’m going to hug someone. A rider who is shorter would have her and legs outstretched farther and have to put more effort turning.

I’ve ridden the Stateline for two full seasons, and I have ridden in a variety of I now have a very good for the pros and cons of this


The engine is very even at very low revs. much smoother than the I’ve ridden the Stateline for and I have none of the shakes I get with the Harley.

The engine has a lot of and performs flawlessly, even I am in the wrong gear.

The transmission is great. Perfect gear smooth shifting, and it is easy to The drive shaft requires maintenance. Just get on and ride. is no lash from the shaft.

I the looks of the Stateline. It has a very gas tank and a sleek look. The are a bit too retro for me but overall it looks The blacked-out cylinders look too. The instrument panel is in the gas tank.

This adds to the sleek The instrument panel is easy to even with a full-face There is no glare on the instrument even on very sunny The only gauge is the speedometer. is augmented with the standard set of lights.

I personally like gauges (particularly a tachometer and a gauge) but this is consistent the current style of cruisers.

The are forward of the centerline. Well out of the way putting my feet on the ground, and in a position when riding. The is low, which is the current

It makes planting my feet on the very easy.

The Stateline is well balanced. I can ride the easily at very low speeds. It is so balanced that I can come to a stop at a stop sign and go without putting my feet


The front brake is good, but the rear brake is This causes a serious when braking. Honda have improved the rear included an anti-dive front end (as have on other bikes) or

The turning radius is much than I expected both at low and high speeds. This it difficult to negotiate parking and other tight spaces. to do the back-and-forth shuffle in parking

At higher speeds, I scrape the early, so I have to take much slower than I am to.

The Stateline has a single shock in the that is too stiff for use with a rider. It gives a punishing on rough roads and causes an dismount whenever I hit a bump. there is an adjustment to soften the and yes, it is worthless.

The air cleaner is an oversized medallion on the side that interferes my right knee. I’ve from many rides a bruised right knee. should issue kneepads to all buyers.

The handlebars are very low an inch of the tank when to one side). This is the opposite of the look with very handlebars. The handlebars are spaced too far and are too far forward.

I have very arms, and I can barely sit in an upright Any normal person will these handlebars too far forward. face it.

If you wanted to be leaning far forward on the motorcycle, you would bought a sport bike, not a

The exhaust note is OK. At low throttle it is very quiet, which is good for going through suburban areas. When the is opened up, it creates a deep, noise.

It is not annoying, but it will not be with a Harley.

This may sound picky, but the sounds like something I would use on a kids tricycle. It was to fix. I just replaced it one of many horns that can be on the aftermarket.


Overall, the Stateline is a mixed bag. It have any major flaws, but It has annoyances that I will not it another year.
