VT 1300 CX

Honda VT 1300 CXThe Honda VT 1300 CX is a true original – a chopper that’s visually daring and great fun to ride; yet with the same functionality, quality and reliability you would expect from any Honda. Its raked-out styling, based round a high-mount steering head, long, slim fuel tank and ultra-low seat grabs attention from every angle. Clean lines and curves and an extreme attention to detail create a chopper with the distinct air of a full-on hand-built custom bike, but one that can be owned and maintained for a fraction of the cost.

The soul of the VT 1300 CX is its 1312 cc liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin engine. It features a single-pin crankshaft, dual balancers and a Programmed Fuel Injection system. It produces satisfying performance and a truly impressive V-twin sound and feel. Fuel consumption is low and, with a clean, reliable, maintenance-free shaft drive, owners can be sure of spending more time on the road and less in the garage.

A single, powerful 336 mm front disc brake is complemented by a 296 mm disc brake at the back, providing smooth, powerful braking. An advanced Combined Antilock Brake System is also available as an option, providing the ultimate in stopping confidence. Comfort is also far beyond the norm for a chopper. The lines of what looks like a rigid hard-tail rear end are deceptively sleek, concealing an ingenious rear suspension system with adjustable rebound damping and 35-position spring preload adjustment.
