The 2012 Honda Sabre blends a distinctive cruiser style with muscular performance numbers that are just too impressive to ignore. It’s no wonder that of the three new bikes Honda is releasing based on the VT1300, the Sabre is arguably the most versatile.
The bike’s pro-street styling is as sleek and aggressive as any that we’ve seen recently. The distinct open, minimalist frame and long, lean and low-slung design of the Sabre begins with a narrow 21" front tire and an aggressively raked front fork, before continuing with a lightweight steering head that belies its sturdiness. The back of the Sabre also features a hidden shock that exudes a sleek hard-tail look without giving up rider comfort and handling control.
At the heart of the Sabre is an advanced 1,312 cc V-twin engine that comes with Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI). Combine that with other sophisticated technology, including a Combined Braking System with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), and you have a bike that takes cruiser performance to a whole new level.
Despite sharing some of the same DNA as the other new custom 1300s, the Sabre stands head and shoulders above its competitors before its versatility and muscular style is only the beginning of the impressive overall package it has. Whether you’re looking for a bike that comes with outstanding power, comfortable handling, and an aggressive and eye-catching style, it’s best to understand that the package you’re looking for can all be had with the Honda Sabre.

The Honda Sabre cruiser looks like a dastardly devious bike with plenty of bad intentions, just the type of bike that fits to the taste of street riders the whole world over.
So when you take the design of the Sabre and turn it into a concept with help from styling cues derived from Formula 1 and MotoGP, you get the motherload of all concept street bikes. That’s what you get with the Sabre Switchblade Pro Drag Concept. It comes with a full carbon fiber custom bodywork and spec seating, a VT1300cc engine, and a 3-way fully-adjustable sport suspension system with a single sided swing arm and a 535-chain conversion that optimizes the bike’s overall focus on design, speed, and sheer awesomeness.
In addition to the laundry list of fantastic features, the Sabre Switchblade Pro Drag Concept also gets racing spec calipers and rotors, carbon fiber wheels - 21" on the front and 18" on the rear - and an on-board GPS lap-timer with a data acquisition unit.
At some point, these concepts should make it past the production phase, right? We don’t know what the end-game is with the Switchblade Pro Drag Concept, but we sure wouldn’t mind seeing one of these bad boys on the Honda showroom floor.
Honda has recently launched a completely new line of 1300cc cruisers that they call the 1300 Custom Line.
