Default Re: VTX 1300 test please

I say yes to a VTX1300 & a VTX1800 review together. The VTX1300 is so much lighter than the VTX1800 that I wouldn't be surpised that it could outperform it. Also, throw the Valkerye in there.l

I would be all over a new "Power" cruiser shootout. But, don't you DARE do a comparison this time without the Valkyrie.

The VTX 1300 doesn't really qualify as a "power cruiser", does it?

All vtx 1800 reviews criticise the handling.

How about a review of the vtx 1300 c model. I think this bike maybe up to snuff. I think the c models are much preferred because of less weight and lower profile. Isn't the 1800 a new class of bike anyway ? "touring-cruiser"

MO is back in the good graces of the giant honda???? There are tests of the VTX 1300 out there already. Just remember in the cruiser catagorie there is no replacement for displacement. Kawasaki's 1500 classic is priced just about the same as the honda 1300, and they both have carbs.

Default VTX 1300 RETRO

Yes, I'm referring to the 1300 Retro model. A lot of the media (and private parties) are saying that the 1300 sounds, and feels better than the 1800. Everyone seems to be saying that it's more refined. The only thing I like about the new "C" model is the cast wheels. I like the tank-mounted speedometer, and the bigger, valenced fenders of the retro. Somehow to me, the styling on it seems more "fresh". The MOrons definitely need to test this baby!!!

Yeah, I'd love to see a VRod/VMax/VTX/SV650 shootout.

No powercruiser shootout would be complete without a Moto Guzzi California... One of the best kept moto secrets on the planet.
