The bold and powerful VTX1300R features the classic lines of retro styling flowing around a sparkling V-twin engine that delivers big power to cruise the boulevards, tour the country, or set out down the road with no particular destination in mind. Its impeccable detailing reveals the strong influence of earlier times in the shapes of its deeply valanced fenders, wide, saddle-type seat, and large, curvaceous fuel tank topped by a sparkling chrome instrument display.
The VTX’s engine provides an indescribable seat-of-the-pants feel of big V-twin performance, while every twist of its throttle unleashes an effortless blast of low-to-midrange performance that will take your breath away. Beautifully chromed dual exhaust pipes give your rides a throaty accompaniment as every detail glitters in polished paint, metal and chrome.
Settling into its wide, low and comfortable saddle, the VTX gives you a comfortable upright view of the world that’s perfect for more relaxed speeds and lazy days of back road cruising. Whatever way you like to travel, the VTX1300R lets you sit back and take in the view. What more could you possibly ask for in a bike that’s designed for many a pleasant day’s ride?
