Some people said that Honda's 2014 Fury was a bit too skinny as far as the front end. Honda replied: "Problem solved!", and introduced the new Stateline, a bike with a chunky, massive front wheel, but retaining all the Pro Street cred of the basic Fury.
It's really nice to see Honda hanging on to making cruisers displaying such a rich custom look which evokes the bike-making trends of the 70s. And seeing them loaded with Honda's latest technologies and offered for a fraction of what a custom machine usually sells is even better.

The 2014 Honda Stateline is based on the same flowing chassis of the Fury, sporting the same long wheelbase and low seat which made riders with a shorter inseam love these machines. Pullback handlebars reach to the riding position and form a visually-pleasant triangle with the forward-mounted controls.

Honda retained the dual stacked silencers and 5-spoked cast wheels, but the front tire is now a beefy 140mm one. The 2-piston front caliper squeezes a 336mm rotor, while the single-pot one in the rear does to same to a 296mm disc.

At the heart of the 2014 Stateline beats the 1,312cc liquid-cooled, injected v-twin, mated to a 5-speed tranny and sporting low-maintenance shaft drive. The VT1300CR weighs in at 672 lbs (304 kg) ready to roll and is offered for $12,150 (€9,210), base price. An ABS version is also available for some 1 grand extra.
