Honda ST1300

For those seeking long-distance comfort along with exemplary engine performance and superior handling, Honda presents the ST1300 Sport Touring motorcycles which earn high marks from riders all around the globe.

Although the ST1300 bikes don’t feature any changes or upgrades for 2009, earlier production models are almost as important as future ones as they provide the needed feedback for later revamps.

The Honda ST1300 is a fully-faired touring motorcycle which proves that the performance that comes with a sport bike and the luxury associated with a long-distance tourer aren’t mutually exclusive goals. In fact, they can coexist quite happily on one motorcycle, and the ST1300 ABS proves it. This is a great bike for those who want to ride many miles in comfort and security without sacrificing bad-boy power and performance.

A low-slung, liquid-cooled 1261cc V4 engine mounted directly to the frame powers the Honda ST1300, and it features excellent front Dual Hydraulic Disc brakes. It manages to be less top-heavy than the ST1100 (its predecessor) by virtue of a split fuel tank and a revised engine layout, which shift some of the bike’s 630lbs downward. Comfort and accommodation are important as well, which is why this bike features a comfortable standard riding posture and hard saddlebags.
