2013 Honda Stateline Review


Honda’s website claims it’s the 2013 Honda 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 that will catch your eye and not let go. The Stateline’s sleek look will leave you speechless.""

This bike isn’t all bark with no bite. The deep rumble of a 1312cc V-twin delivers plenty of torque; on the braking side, a 336mm front disc and a 296mm disc provide powerful stops, corralling you in any case of unexpected obstacles. The 2013 Honda Stateline brings together traditional looks with progressive elements to create a stylish machine built to cruise whenever you feel the need.
