Honda announced four cruisers and a sport tourer, adding five more motorcycles to its 2010 lineup.

“These five street bikes add even more excitement to our lineup for 2010,” says Bill Savino, American Honda Powersports press manager. “Four of these bikes are new V-twins that dramatically expand our line of cruisers. The Sabre, Stateline, Interstate and Shadow RS V-twins unveil new styling and functional variations for Honda buyers, and we’re excited about the new opportunities these machines present. The ST1300 continues to extend its reputation for long-haul performance with a sporting flair and it remains a popular choice among riders who live for the open road. This 2010 model year is shaping up very well, with lots of exciting options for Honda fans.”

The 2010 Honda Sabre's new handlebars are set low and narrow for a more aggressive riding position.

The 2010 Honda Sabre is powered by a 1,312cc 52-degree V-Twin with Programmed Fuel Injection. Available in Black and Candy Red, the 2010 Sabre is due in dealerships in March with a ticket price of $11,799. An ABS-equipped model will be available in April for $12,799.

Honda describes the Stateline as a combination of traditional looks and progressive elements.

With its deeply valanced fenders, the 2010 Honda Stateline offers a classic style while the blacked-out engine and stylized curved frame create a custom look. Also powered by a 1,312cc 52-degree Twin, the 2010 Honda Stateline will be available in February in Black and Candy Dark Red for $11,699. An ABS version will be available for $12,699.

The Honda Interstate's windscreen will make travelling at highway speeds more comfortable.

The aptly named Honda Interstate is designed for longer trips with its floorboards, custom windscreen and exclusive new leather-wrapped hard saddlebags. The 1,312cc Interstate will be in dealerships in February in Black and Pearl Blue with a retail price of $12,749.

The Honda Shadow RS is powered by a liquid-cooled 745cc V-Twin engine with Programmed Fuel Injection. The Shadow RS will arrive in Honda dealerships in March. Available in Metallic Gray and Pearl White, the 2010 Honda Shadow RS retails for $7,799.

The 2010 Honda ST1300 is powered by a 1,261cc V4 engine with Programmed Fuel Injection. Available with or without ABS, the ST1300 comes with a three-way adjustable seat, motor-driven adjustable windscreen, dual saddlebags and full-coverage bodywork.
