In subsequent years, the VTX 1800F remained at the top of the cruiser class, and buyers were given greater customization choices when choosing a new bike.
Since 2002, the Honda VTX1800F has only gotten better. The 2008 VTX 1800F stays true to the muscular appeal of the original bike. This bike is rather large, so the designers had plenty of room to add the touches that are typical of VTX 1800F style. Customers were given several different options for customization while the basics of the motorcycle remain the same. All versions of the VTX 1800F feature lots of chrome and a low-slung, broad silhouette evoking a drag-bike attitude. For those who want to make a big statement with a motorcycle, the VTX 1800F is an excellent choice.
