The first time you see it, the Honda® Stateline® will grab your attention and refuse to let go. Just like it’ll draw everyone’s stares wherever you ride it. Sure, a lot of it has to do with its cool, classic lines and progressive retro styling. Or the blacked-out cylinder fins surrounding that massive 1312cc V-twin. Or the Stateline®’s long, low-slung profile, perfectly accented with swept-back bars atop raked-out forks and full-size fenders spooning fat front and rear tires.
Or maybe it’s simply the combination of all these things. And you know what? Who cares? Because when a bike looks this cool and works this well, you just want to sit back, start her up. And go riding.
Part of the Stateline®’s super clean look comes from mounting the instruments in a streamlined, modern tank nacelle. It completely opens up the handlebar area, yet still gives you all the information you need.
- Retro-Progressive Styling
Like its Sabre and Fury cousins, the Stateline®—with its chopped dragster look, beefy V-twin and long, neo-design fenders—is one of the most authentic, radically styled custom motorcycles that Honda® has ever produced.
Silver-finish five-spoke wheels never go out of true, are easy to keep clean and just plain look right on a sharp, contemporary cruiser like the Stateline®.
- Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI)
Forget about fiddling with a choke—the Stateline®'s fuel injection system means no-hassle start-ups on cold mornings or at high altitudes, and optimal performance in any condition.
- Three-Valve Dual-Plug Combustion Chamber
Our powerful 1312cc 52° V-twin engine with a single-pin crankshaft and dual balancers has plenty of torque, and the feel only a V-twin can deliver.
Measuring in at an ultra low 26.7 inches, the Stateline®’s wide, one-piece, deep-dish seat not only beefs up the comfort level, but the classic styling as well.
Big, fat and bad to the bone, the Stateline®’s wide, low tires do more than just look good: they are the basis for the Stateline®’s excellent handling—exactly what you’d expect from a Honda® cruiser.
The shaft final drive is quiet, clean and has been uniquely integrated into the overall design.
Those long, full-coverage fenders with their deep side valances are purely modern, but pay tribute to some of the classic cruisers of old. That combination of classic and new is what the Stateline® is all about.
