The Honda Interstate offers a perfect mix of power, style and comfort. In terms of design, the bike features an attractive old school allure combined with many modern elements and lots of chrome. We especially like the sleek fuel tank, the sculpted seat and the carefully polished engine.
Talking about the engine, the Interstate is propelled by a 1312cc, liquid-cooled, 52° V-twin unit with PGM-FI (electronic fuel injection) system. The engine is linked to a five speed transmission and delivers an average fuel consumption of 46 MPG.
As far as practicality is concerned the Honda Interstate comes with many touring features that include floorboards, leather-clad saddlebags and a custom windscreen.
The motorcycle’s speed is kept in leash by a set of front and rear disc brakes, and there is also available an optional Anti-lock braking system.
The Honda Interstate comes with a starting price of $13,240.

’Interstate’ might not be the first word that comes to mind when you’re thinking about an all-world cruiser bike, but don’t let the name fool you; the 2012 Honda Interstate is the perfect mix of style and performance wrapped in one awesome package.
Featuring long, low lines that embody all the characteristics of a cruiser bike, the Honda Interstate blends two worlds of motorcycling style: traditional looks plus progressive elements. The deeply balanced fenders arc downward in classic retro style, yet the all-new rolling chassis and overall lines bring a fresh look to the class. The Interstate also has stylish hard leather bags that offer ample storage space, as well as an enormous windscreen that allows you enjoy the spoils of riding one of the best cruisers on the market today. The Honda Interstate was designed to capture the imagination - and bank accounts - of riders who want their motorcycle to not only travel long distances, but also look stylish while doing it.
Meanwhile, the Honda Interstate is powered by a mighty 1,312 cc V-twin engine that lets out a deep throaty rumble that only a big V-twin engine can have.
We know what it feels like to look at a dealership and see a glistening custom cruiser bike staring at you, begging to be plucked. That’s the emotion the Honda Interstate gives you. It’s a cruiser that not only merges style with performance, but it also belongs in the hands of a man that can make the most out of it.
