VTX1300R

The Little Brother of the Biggest and Baddest Power Cruiser

1300ccs. That and 500 more will get you the meanest mass-produced v-twin power cruiser the world ever saw. But the VTX 1300 Retro was never intended to be so big and powerful. The now beloved 1312cc V-Twin engine developed 74 hp at 5,000 rpm and 123 Nm at 3,000 rpm with a disc brake for each wheel and a shaft drive for the rear one. That is enough for most folks.

Best bike EVER!
So I've had several bikes through the years and NOTHING has come close to this bike!  I bought a Harley in 2011...never had one so I thought, eh, what the heck.  From then until about three weeks ago...

rm1300 Just Awesome
Bought my VTX new in 05 and have had no problems and just great rides. Added some chrome, bags, windshield and more. It's a Honda tradition, just keeps going and looks like new.

Love my 03 vtx-s, but am not happy about the front end shake from 30 - 45 mph, and the way the frame seems shaky as well.  Wish list for the bike if I would have factory input would be. No plastic...
