VTX 1300C
By Tim(Enthusiast), Sep. 17, 2008
This is a great bike for the long and short haul. Power is good in both street riding situations and for highway/byway travels. Riding possition is perfect for me (i'm 6 ft) and the seat though a little hard, was very comfortable to me and during a long weekend ride, 2 hours in the saddle was very... Read Full Review

Great bike for the money
By Aaron Schmidt(Owner), Jun. 16, 2009
I've owned my VTX for just over 2 years, and I must say, it is probably the most reliable bike I have ever owned. Plus, I still get compliments on what a beautiful bike it is! Women love the orange paint, by the way!



I'm a rather large person, over 6'2", just about 270 pounds. To make any ... Read Full Review

VTX 1300 C - Low, long, and aggressive ...
By Gary(Owner), Nov. 14, 2008
... but probably not the bike for the "look at me I'm loud 'n' proud" crowd. However, if you tend to value your hard-earned penneys over "outlaw" trendiness, this version of Honda's venerable VTX line is a good place to go.



More than adequate power, complemented by better than... Read Full Review

By mike(Owner), Jun. 23, 2009
I like the 1300 more than my Yamaha Roadstar. It's lighter, handles better and gets 10 more miles to the gallon, about 50mpg. Most of the chrome on the bike is plastic. Don't like that much. It's geared too low for long range cruising. I always reach for another gear upon reaching 70 mph. I would li... Read Full Review

2006 Honda VTX 1300
By CBeck(Owner), Apr. 14, 2009
This bike truly deserves a top 10 mention IMO. It handles very well, has ample power, is PERFECTLY balanced, it sure doesn't feel like it's 641 pounds and looks good too. Certainly a bargain at under $10,000.00. I'd buy it all over again. Read Full Review
