Honda VTX1800

Just how do you put words the following two BIG figures and 115 ft/lb of torque? Instead, hop on and for a ride.

We’re cruising at an of 693mm (all shorties and our first gear speed of is hit in a mere moment, greeted a customary rev-limiter hesitation and an lurch for the slightly clunky but lever as you snatch the next That magic footsie/pound number is met in top (fifth) at just revs. Hang on and see 95bhp and if you want to, but that isn’t the VTX is meant to do.

Ride that and plough a big, deep, furrow.

And plough it does. That sound and hint of vibration indicates the biggest torque produced by Honda, with the pistons ever produced by with the longest … produced by Honda and the biggest (do you get the drift?) ever produced by you hear another sound. is a pleasurable sound at first, but grates.

The pegs go down as you your favourite bend. Cue grin. But it keeps happening, if you’re slotting this into a parking slot at It’s daft, as an unsympathetic on the road, means you spread and pounds worth of your £11, 345 chromium outlay into the ether before very mirrors

I’m going to take a and say this, but I really feel even just a couple of raised here and a few tucked there, would help the Sure, it’s got a dry sump to the height of the motor (which but it all becomes about as cool as a Capri. It’s a shame, as I cruisers that you can cruise on wincing.

After all, Cali range doesn’t such a problem?

Honda say the VTX is ridden by people around 40 old who think ‘biggest is best.’ The VTX is on the 1995 Zodia concept and comes with a monster 52 liquid-cooled, vee-twin motor. You eat your dinner off the huge cover or the 101mm pistons splodge fuel towards two and one exhaust port. These internals are fed by fuel-injection, 42mm bodies and fired by two spark per cylinder.

Biggest, sure. But best? Doesn’t really feel any or worse than the next big cruiser to me, although you do get great Pseudo linked anchors that you’re working the four pistons only the lever squeezed, while the two pistons and the back pistons in with a dab of rear pedal.

There are nice touches — the hooded chrome headlamp but while the original Zodia bike was a bleedin’ stunner, all lines and organic forks the front wheel spindle the production VTX simply doesn’t close.

Please don’t I’m turned off by the looks of thing as it’s a cool beast (if only a skin-deep but it’s lost a lot in the translation concept to production. Some may that’s not such a bad thing.

Obviously, as this is made in the US, where the market is, although UK say there’s a move towards in this country, too and they the whole ‘bigger is better’ of the VTX will win UK sales.

So, it’s a comfortable, well-braked bike. sheer size and torque, not an intimidating creature — of a Val Doonican than a Keith

It’s just a shame I can’t get Honda’s superb and comparitively priced — F6C out of my mind. A bike that to all — and Honda — you don’t need a vee-twin let alone the biggest in production, to do the cruiser thing justice.
