2007 Honda VTX1300

Posted on by 3

Like its big brother the VTX1800, Honda’s VTX1300 boasts distinctive classic-cruiser looks plus a muscular, big V-twin engine—all at a value-laden price.

Features


New for 2007
VTX(R)1300R and S colors include Metallic Blue, Dark Red Metallic, Titanium and Black.
VTX1300C colors include Dark Red, Pearl White, Pearl Dark Blue, Pearl Bright Green and Black.

Unique VTX1300R/S Features
Deeply valanced front and rear fenders, chrome-hooded headlight, broad fuel tank with tank-mounted instruments, semi-swept handlebar and floorboards with heel-and-toe shifter create a classic retro style that sets the VTX apart from the competition.
Rider comfort is enhanced with comfortable ergonomics and a firmly padded saddle featuring a low 27-inch seat height.
Staggered dual exhaust pipes produce a pleasing, throaty exhaust note.
VTX1300S features traditional spoke wheels.
VTX1300R features retro-style cast wheels.
Large 140/80-17 front tire gives the S and R models a commanding profile.
The black resin seat pan/rear fender located under the seat cowl has been designed to position the battery and electrical components forward for optimum mass centralization.

Unique VTX1300C Features
Custom cast wheels give the VTX1300C a performance-custom profile.
A beefy 170/80-15 rear tire puts the VTX’s power to the ground and provides exceptional traction.
Minimalist front and rear fenders complement the VTX’s street-rod styling.
Artfully designed tank-mounted instruments.
Dual exhaust with shorter pipes for street-rod look.

Engine/Drivetrain

Honda VTX1300

VTX engine is a 1312cc liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin that delivers strong low-end and mid-range torque, with ample power for passing and relaxed cruising.
Powerplant features a single-pin crankshaft to accentuate the VTX engine’s character.
Dual two-axis primary counterbalancers minimize harsh engine vibration without eliminating the powerful pulse feeling transmitted by the VTX’s traditional V-twin design.
The engine mounting system uses carefully matched hangers to eliminate unwanted vibration, while preserving the powerful character of the V-twin engine.
Each three-valve cylinder head features two 31mm intake valves and a large 40mm exhaust valve to produce optimum flow for the incoming air/fuel charge.
Simple-to-service screw-and-locknut valve clearance adjusters.
Single 38mm constant-velocity carburetor offers crisp throttle response at all engine speeds.
Electronic control unit (ECU) provides 3-D ignition maps for each cylinder, creating ideal spark advance settings for superb rideability.
Coolant-heated carburetor improves rideability and ensures smooth operation in cold conditions.
Two spark plugs per cylinder for efficient combustion at all engine speeds.
A unique dry-sump oil system utilizes a closed-crankcase design and places the oil tank inside the gearbox case. The result is a freer-revving engine for improved power and a lower engine height, allowing optimum rider ergonomics and a low 27-inch seat height.
Custom chromed two-into-two exhaust system produces a deep exhaust note.
Radiator with cooling fan maintains consistent engine temperature for optimum performance and long engine life.
Maintenance-free automatic cam-chain tensioners.
Reliable electric-starter system.
Sturdy clutch utilizes a rubber clutch-center damper to ensure smooth and quiet shifting.
Five-speed transmission with carefully selected gear ratios for exciting roll-on performance.
Shaft final-drive system provides smooth, low-maintenance operation.
Drive-flange design at the final-drive gear eliminates final-drive noise and wear, and simplifies rear wheel installation.


Chassis/Suspension

Honda VTX1300

Massive tubular steel frame contains the engine’s power and gives the VTX a long, low, classic stance.
Large 41mm extended front fork provides 5.1 inches of plush yet responsive travel.
Dual chromed rear shocks with five-position preload adjustment feature an advanced internal valve system for a comfortable ride.
Front disc brake features a twin-piston caliper with a large-diameter 336mm stainless-steel rotor. Combined with the rear single-piston caliper and 296mm stainless-steel rotor, the brakes provide excellent stopping power.

Additional Features


Specially designed tank-mounted chrome housing features a speedometer, odometer/A&B tripmeter and indicator lights for the turn signals, high beam, neutral indicator, oil pressure and coolant temperature.
Electric speedometer with easy-to-read classic numerals uses an electronic speed sensor in the transmission, which eliminates the front-wheel-mounted speedometer cable. This contributes to a clean, uncluttered look.
Extensive chrome-finishing of engine parts includes cylinder-head covers, valve inspection covers, airbox cover, left crankcase cover, clutch cover and left-rear engine cover.
Distinctive, chrome-hooded headlight housing features a powerful 55/60-watt halogen bulb with a computer-designed multireflector for superb lighting in all conditions.
VTX1300C, S and R models feature a stylish chrome tank emblem.
Handlebar design provides a comfortable, upright riding position.
Comfortably padded, large-diameter handgrips with polished aluminum handlebar switch housings and triple-clamp assembly.
4.8-gallon fuel tank for extended cruising and touring range.
Reliable 364-watt alternator.
Durable, maintenance-free 12-amp-hour battery.
Handlebar switches and controls use internationally approved ISO graphic symbols.
