2013 VT1300CR Stateline Brings Life to Honda's Chopper Line-up
The 2013 Stateline is a nifty bobber with quite an attitude as it boasts modern technology and the modern custom bikes' design lines, sworn to have the old Shadow owners look at it with lust. The first striking elements of the Stateline are its thoroughly pulled back handlebars and the tapered-end fuel tank.
This new-retro look is really appealing even for those who are not necessarily into choppers - it screams an aggressive yet pleasant nature. The whole design is backed up by the nice 1312cc V-Twin engine and shaft final drive, all adding to the bike's clean and smooth look. We're not sure how well will the 2013 Stateline fare on a highway with it's 5-speed gearbox, though.
For $12,150 (€9,388) we were expecting a bike a bit more loaded with long-distance cruising capabilities. The ABS version drains another $1,000 (€772).
